    OK, is there anyone else who stops halfway through a thread just to wait for Raven VII's avatar to do its thing, then laugh and carry on?

    First time I saw it, I thought, "now there's a naff looking 'tar", then, after looking shifty for a moment it .. (I'll leave this out so newbies can experience for themselves)... and I fell over laughing.

    So - who elses Avatar do you stop for.

    edesignuk's ever changing, ever the same fixation?

    Who else?

    Yeah, much the same here. I love edesign's, Raven VII's and Mr Andersons'. But where's yours CanadaRAM? ;) How about a maple leaf made out of memory chips?

    Heh, working on it. But I just got home after working since 8AM and it's just gone midnight... soon, real soon.
    Problem is, the bar is set so high already...

    You can always just rip something off one of the major I.T. companies...

    Like maybe Apple, Sun or... Microsoft? ;)

    Well as most people probably do, I usually check edesignuk's avatar for the weekly photo of Keira, that and wdlove's animated finder icon with OS X genie effect.

    I remember a lot of people's avatars, but those are the one's I like to watch :D

    Yeah, I'm quite a fan of yours. It's from Shrek II, right? I'm always interested in what makes someone decide what their 'tar is, because it's kind of like their self-assigned face for MacRumors. So is there any reason for Puss-in-boots, just out of interest?

    i love avatars. i stop for mr anderson's, nermal's, i used to get confused by wdlove's when it would be at the bottom of the page near my dock but now that my dock is tiny that doesn't happen anymore :p i also used to love stoid's back when it was tony the tiger and errm....who used to have the avatar with the storm trooper dancing in a parking lot? loved that one. i must admit i really like my own :eek: but my favorite is prolly iGary's ever-changing Jobs avatar. :D

    edit: w00t! 1000 posts! *parties*
    double edit: actually it's 1004 but i just now noticed im a 65816
    edit x3: my 'tar lost some awesomeness for the 65816 edition but that's ok

    OK, I've got a temporary one up.

    Actually, a mountain goat is pretty accurate: dumb as a sack of hammers but willing to butt heads with anyone, anytime.

    Yup, that's me. :p

    Thanks

    The one with the sheep that scares the man is pretty funny. Also iGary - I don't know where he gets so many Steve Jobs pics.

    Because he's cute, and that was the cutest look of the movie.

    And there are several that I like, but I can't remember whom they belong to.

    I always look at edesign's to see which Keira is up, I spent months trying to figure out who the guy was in Homer's, I LOVE Raven's.... :D

    Now that is the really interesting question... some just look nice, but others tell a little story.

    Damn, I always thought it was some red-head guy with cute eyes.

    Maybe I'm not really a queer bent fool after all. :p

    Isabella definitely looks a little androgynous in that shot. But she proved beyond any doubt that she's a woman in that movie...

    I don't really "stop" for anyone's 'tar. I just use them to quickly identify people. I've found that if you get used to a person with a certain 'tar, when they change it, their posts just don't seem the same. Ya, I'm weird like that...

    But on another note... I chose my avatar because, well, it's CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS!!!!

    I hope that's not the case, otherwise I may need to re-think mine. :p :D
