The garage seems slow to me. I sometime get timeout errors. Where is this hosted? Anyone else have problems with a slow site?

I don't host from home. I work for a web hosting / web design / web application company. We host out of the Chicago Board of Trade building.

Don't know the name of the company. 11th floor I think. I went there once to drop off the server and they are really cool up there. Laid back and just let us walk around and see the place. They mostly resell servers for web hosting companies and usually don't work with small businesses. But we work a block away from there so it is nice because we can just walk there and mess with our server when needed.

No shit. I work right next door at 175 W. Jackson on the 8th floor. Go figure.

There's a couple good places for a quick lunch within a block. Lai Lai Chinese next to the Billy Goat is awesome if you like Chinese. Sesame Chicken FTW.

They recently closed a place called Trader's that had awesome Chicago dogs and assorted beef foods. Much better than the other places in the area.

Definitely. During a normal 5-day work week, Fridays are best for me. Have you explored some of the food around the area yet?

I work at 800 S Wells in the River Road Apts there. We head to the Mediterra Cafe every so often for monday meetings and lunch.

Nice, we used to shoot our SUV and truck videos down there on Wells where the pavement ends. It was just rugged enough where we could tear through some potholes and rough pavement.
