    Yup... that's right... The penguins gotta go. I'm tired of looking at him. I want a new tar.

    Here's the reasons why I'm asking you guys to help:

    1) I have a 4 month old daughter that takes 95 percent of my time.
    2) I have no photoshop skills, no animated tar skills, no numb-chuck skills, and definitely no bow staff skills.
    3) I'm lazy.

    There ya go! :D Help me be pathetic. I'll even give you props in my sig.

    Please make it something clean. Let's not get the thread locked.

    well throw us a bone here, what sort of thing are you looking for? :p

    i have an animated old school apple from the avatar contest you can "borrow" if you want. will edit this post with it shortly.

    all bright and shiny! :D

    I understand the 4-month-old deal. My youngest is now at eight months. Not a big improvement. ;)

    I'd offer to help, but am still floundering with my own. I think I'm going to set the PMG5 back up and have a go at it. Then I'll work up something for you. Because, you know, I'll do such a better job than one of Blue's cast-offs. Yeah, right....

    Use hers. :)

    God... I'm pathetic. Umm... Macs, Digital Photography.

    See... here's the problem. I like jsw's and emw's tars. Why? I don't know. Just do. That's why I'm pathetic, I can't think of a single thing that would make a great tar.

    Added rules: Really don't want a tar with a person in it... I don't want to answer the famous... is that you question? Really don't want to be driven nuts like e . Did that help?

    :(

    edit: jsw... it's too "sparkly". I'll wear pink, but sparkly?

    Yeah, see, I posted before she added it.

    I think it's very pretty. And I think any guy using it will immediately be branded as gay. NTTAWRT, but still... not for you.

    Edit: I think you like mine and emw's because of some deeply hidden Iowa thing (crop circles?). See, emw and I were both born in Iowa.

    Edit 2: Really.

    yeah, i see what you mean... it does appear that avatar is either for die hard "old school" mac fans, gays or girls. :p

    i have an idea though, i'll see how it comes out. it might suck, you never know with these things.

    Well, I can assure you it'll be better than anything I can do - and, presumably, better than what hcuar can do too.

    Help him, iBlue-Wan Kenobi. You're his only hope.

    Well, a Google search of "apple avatars" turns up these fine, nonsensical options:

    well i don't know about that but...

    here's an idea, which can be elaborated on if it's well received. (it's open in photoshop and can be manipulated however it needs to be... more or less opacity, direction of the apples, etc) my main problem is coming up with an idea from scratch for someone, i never know which direction to go with it.
    there's a PNG and a GIF. the png looks better but is not transparent in <gasp> Internet Explorer. (like we care) :p

    it's the whole Apple, past and present thing...

    Ooh, thank you! So if I were to just download it to my desktop and then attempt to use it as an avatar that would work? (As you can see I'm still a bit waffly on this whole avatar business!)

    Thanks!

    Oh, pretty, PRETTY! Many thanks!!

    Ah, bravo, Blue, bravo! Well done! :)

    Edit: Wow. What a lame reply. I was going to write something nice but funny, but I'm too tired for anything but the nice. Oh well. Anyway, I think they look great! "they" = the tars, just to be clear...

    your white text just made me spit crackers. that's damn funny "they" ;) (I get a little goofy this time of night too, no worries)

    thanks, i aim to please and occasionally succeed. it's a cool feeling to see your own creations in action.

    Well, one is extremely clean, one adorably cuddly, one will make everyone hungry and one will prove that you really do have quite a pair. :)

    Oh, I'd be happy to host the file. Just email it to me... talk as long as you want. I'm sure the entire MR community would like to hear. ;)
