1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Harlem, NY; it is in Manhattan and the "Black capital of the world".

    The one Gaulish village that still holds out against the invaders. They seem to have a great time.

    Charleston, South Carolina. I've heard it takes you back 200 years the second you walk into the historica district, and it has such a rich history.

    I'd just want to bounce around Europe for a few years - there is too much to see and do to pick just one place.

    I'm more than happy with Edinburgh right now, but i really do want to live in San Francisco one day. The place look's really relaxed.

    Plus I'm sure my Scottish accent would go down well in the States.

    That's kinda funny, b/c my #2 and 3 on my list are Edinburgh and SF. Ironic.

    From a long-term perspective? Kinda smaller in scope than most people on here, but either Dog Island, St. George Island, or Apalachicola. All in Florida. Wouldn't mind trying Perth, Zanzibar, Santiago (Chile) or BudaPest though.

    I live in Charleston currently and the historical district is amazing, and rainbow row is gorgeous. edit: it often smells strongly of horses due to all the carriage tours around certain areas edit again: I realize it says Columbia but that's only because I'm currently enrolled in a University there [​IMG]

    It would go down well. Maybe not Love Actually well, but with a minimum of social grace, the Brits/Scots/Irish make quite a killing over here.

    And to contribute, I don't really want to settle down anywhere; I've always enjoyed moving and the excitement that comes with learning your way around new places, meeting knew people and experiencing new cultures.

    That's what I'm thinking too, perhaps a trip over is in order [​IMG]

    I like American women too much...

    Ha!

    Depending on my financial status and where I go to college I either want to move back to Miami Beach, Florida (I used to live there and loved the climate and the city in general) or just skip down 495 to somewhere in Northern Virginia (I work part-time at Dulles Airport and the shopping in Tysons Corner is great).

    I've also considered London as well, I have British heritage, love the history and overall style of the city.

    I've been to London a couple of times, overall it's a nice place but life moves so fast there, it's a proper rat race. I prefer a more easy going place myself.

    Your more than welcome mate. Like I said it's a fantastic place, plus Edinburgh is in the central belt of Scotland, so your no more than 30 minutes drive from St Andrews, Stirling(Braveheart thing) or Glasgow.

    I'd live in Cape Cod. My wife has a cabin on a lake there that we visit once a year, and it's a dream every time. I'd spend the rest of my days smoking a pipe and reading books in a creaky rocking chair on a screened porch, watching over my son playing in the water and wife digging her toes in the sand.

    I'm also enthralled with Moby Dick right now, so maybe I'd pick Nantucket Island.

    I'd chose either Geneva, Lisbon or SF.
    All of those are great cities with distinct advantages of their own but most importantly the possibility to do some sailing.

    I just wish I could afford where I am now (see NY housing thread)...seriously though, I have some weird fascination with Scandanavia...never been there...no family there but it seems nice. Of course I do love watches and chocolate, proximity to rest of Europe doesn't hurt.
