    IIRC, that was the scene from Office Space where they beat the $#!^ out of the copy machine. I loved that one too.

    Ralphie boy is the sh*z. ;)

    I'll have to look thru the 'tars some more to make a decision. I'm kinda liking Mr. Anderson's newest piece. :)

    I agree with you eye. I'm really digging Mr. Anderson's latest 'tar. If I had to pick the top 2 posters with the best 'tars, I'd say you and Mr. Anderson have had some of the best. I really liked Mr. Anderson's previous Einstein one as well.

    I do like Eye's. Very in, the style and subject matter... People's change so often, i can't keep up anymore! Teabgs is great too, for that classic approach...

    With the new size, there's a lot more detail that you can get. Eye's is great and I don't think it would have looked as good at 50x50.

    I hope we see a lot more creative ones soon. The current one I have is just a place holder :D

    *feels honored* I didn't even know other people had seen the show :D Aminoway, yours kind of freaks me out... ;) feel better btw...

    I wondered about Mr. Anderson's, it seems subpar for him (no offense), i've loved the things he's come up with in the past... looking forward to a new
    one at larger size from you :)

    I love the show. Anyway, I guess mine is a litle creepy-looking if you don't know what it's from (see my sig). I probably could have tried harder to find a less forbidding expression/pose, though. C'est la vie.

    As for feeling better... thanks. Just as soon as my damn heart finally stops I will feel a whole lot better. ;)

    Wow, i hadn't realized we could go to 75x75 pixels... Time to re-do the old avatar. Or maybe find a new one, I haven't decided.

    Can I use Flash to make an animated one?

    I'm pretty sure animated GIFs are the only acceptable ones, which are of course non-interactive. However, the size limit on 'tars is 19.5k, so good luck fitting much animation in there... keep the color pallette small, you'll get more frames in.

    i think it's 39 k now...

    edit: though it does say 19.5 in the cp... rower said 39k in the thread over in the forum discussion thread about avatars... guess it's worth a test.

    That might just be mods, j-man.

    All the demis are saying it's still 19k.

    Adobe ImageReady works very well.

    Would Fireworks be able to pull it off too? I'm curious since I have the Macromedia Studio suite already.

    I like paulwhannel's new one too. I guess this thread brings up the obvious question. When is the next avatar contest?

    /edit for punctuation.

    Ah, interesting, we have a little more space, eh?

    Well, that means I'll have to come up with something worthy of it :D

    nice vniow, but you should animate it so that the sign follows up with something like "Our chief weapon is surprise!" or a mac-themed typed play on that...
