    Congratulations. :)

    Sometimes it takes a while for the system to update (or whatever it does). Don't worry, patience is a virtue, you'll get it soon enough.

    I didn't get mine until 501 posts.

    Don't worry.

    Congrats though!

    I just got mine too.
    It's nice seeing a 'tar next to your name.

    Nope it's from an ancient shareware game made by
    Spiderweb Software called Exile 2 Crystal Souls

    I've been using the name Sharewaredemon on the internet for 7 years.

    And a fine one it is - although the speed of rotation is a little distracting; you may want to drop it down a notch.

    * quickly checks on my own rotation speed *

    yep, its a tad bit fast (MacSA's) - but he might not have enough frames to make a smooth animation at a slower speed

    Where'd you get the images?

    Looks great, even at that speed.

    *silently disappointed it wasn't a pic of Evangeline*

    And a cool one at that.

    I find I really don't know user's names on Macrumors unless the have a 'tar.

    Maybe I'll notice you around more often now.

    Edit: :eek: 3 posts behind!

    Yeah I spose it could be a bit slower but I still like it.
