    Whats Your Avatar?

    Well, felt like a change of avatar and thought I should also start a topic about it! :D ;D

    Anyway, if you also decide change your av or even want to know how to put a new av up, you can post here and let us know what your avatar is or ask us how to fix or change it. Someone here should know! ;)

    Anyway, if you can see it, its the Duke that now is my av.

    So, whats yours?? 8-)

    I liked your av the first time I saw it Steve, Im impressed that youve done it up yourself. Im guessing its from the Jerry Macquire line "Show me the money"? :D

    my avatar is my guitar, its a PRS Hollowbody 2.

    I find when people change their avatars I have to take a min to work out who they are.

    My av is an analogy for life - no matter what, you will always step in cat vomit.

    Mine is the all conquering Valentino Rossi doing one of the things he does best with a bike.

    I try to replicate this from time to time on my own motorbike ;)

    mine goes back to my roots: ice skating in the long Dutch winters.


    L






    PS:....on huge frozen lakes with tracks which were swept smooth by thick-swaddled guys with huge brooms made out of branches..., or on a (on purpose, done by the fire brigade...) flooded paddock near our town, with lights for the evening-sessions, music blaring ou of the speakers and hot choc-coffee (half and half) in a little stall built on pallets on the ice...

    Whats my Avatar?

    UGLY!
    (but the cheeky smug suspicious look is about right)

    It also has less of the "silvery highlights" than my mirror sees now

    Might be time for an update.

    Re: Whats Your Avatar?

    Mine is an adjustment of the one I use elsewhere.
    I decided it needed a coffee theme.

    Here is the original plus one that I used here for a week or two because it amused me, followed by the current one.
    (That would appear to be Alexander the Great drinking a frappe whilst reading the CS forum - I have Greek blood.)





    Heres a couple I thought about using before I decided on the current one.

    Question.... To insert a personalised avatar, can I specify a Flickr web address in my profile update page? Does it (the picture) then need to be inserted by one of the mods or does it appear by itself?

    Well I cant get it to work. Everytime I enter the URL and tick the box and then click on the change profile button, the URL and the tick disappear and nothing gets changed. It all stays as it was. I know why I dont work in IT industry! ;D

    Suggestions?

    Good stuff Flo 8-),

    About the only thing to watch out for with Avatars is that you make sure the original file size is about 80 x 100 pixels or less so that server space isnt wasted with large file sizes. The images only end up being shrunk down by the YaBB software to fit within that frame size anyway, but the file size stays the same. JPG is the best format to use as this results in the smallest file size regardless of actual image size. Small file sizes also help to speed up browser page load time as well, so everyone benefits in the end :). Anyway mate, looks youve got it fully sorted so thats great,

    Cheers,
    Mal.

    I think nunu got it right... the Sun. I dont think it represents anything significant to me except that its a cool pic to look at and the avatar I use on other forums is animated.

    On second thoughts, I suppose it is significant to me because without it we all die! More importantly, without the sun...no coffee! *:o *:( *;D

    Great looking pup Boldor :),

    One of our puppies, now about 11 years young, is a Great Dane x Mastiff. Hes also a terrific mate and still behaves like a puppy when he has a mind to and is still as sharp as a tack. Havent weighed him for a while but at the last weigh-in he came in at 55Kg and he still looks more or less the same as then. People are often surprised at how (relatively) little he eats per day for his size, but they should have seen what he put away while he was still growing :o. All the best,

    Ah yes,

    Know that feeling well. Our pups have their own special beds too of course, outside and inside beds but none of that matters if were not in the immediate vicinity.... just like little kids in a lot of ways :)

    Yes, but what a Tamper! I reckon he should start selling a few to similarly minded CSers ;)

    My wife should use it. She used to work in NASA SPAN - Solar Particle Alert Network - at Carnarvon back in the 70s. They photographed the sun each day and looked out for solar flares. If the flares were too big, the Apollo astronauts couldnt do EVAs.

    Well Since the Family name is Good and we are known as The Goodies, I felt it appropriate to put up one of my most favourite British comedies "The Goodies" up as my AV,*no relation but sometimes I wonder.
