Well, it was very moving... Made me think about my own rather happy-go-lucky avatar customs...

I guess changing avatars can get confusing, but I assure you this time its all in fun.  :)

Hey, for a while there I thought it was Sarge who changed his screen name to Major... ??? ??? ??? That was a really confusing idea... ;D

I should've put Minor, that would have been most confusing.  ;D

Well, anyway: we proved Sarge's point. Seeing his avatar I instinctively treated the post as coming from Sarge without even thinking about the name that was displayed next to it.

Then I decided it was a newcomer.

Then I noticed the eerily high post count. And started to wonder what sort of hacker the newcomer was... ::) ;D)


And back on topic: my current avatar is a blurred pic of my daughter standing in our bedroom door.

I remain fundamentally opposed to cosmetic surgery and frequent changes of avatar. I first used my avatar five years ago and it has been an unchanging presence thoughout cyberspace. I walk into a chatroom anywhere and I'm instantly recognized. Kids beg for my autograph; men slap me on the back and offer to buy me a beer; women want my body. My unwavering commitment to those 100x100 pixels is celebrated in some circles as an example of steadfastness and loyalty that all persons of clean mind and sound body should emulate...or was that sound mind and clean body? Whatever... I know who I am, I am what I am, and I will go to my grave with my Sgt Rock avatar. The only way they'll make me give it up is to pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Sarge, feeling a bit Charlton Heston'ish tonight ;D

That was classic!  LOL....a lot.  I put in a submission to The Mad Hatter to see if I might don my old Bogart avatar, but have not heard back yet.   :D

I am honored that I wasn't your first, second or third guess.  ;D

Mine is now Sviatoslav Richter.

I was maybe gonna go back to the Moravec one, but the image is no longer available. Karma I guess.  ;D

Anyone have a link to the old forum?

Dead on Sarge, but I think I have an easier way to get respect from men, adoration from women, and beer... steal your avatar when I need it! ;D ;) :D

I can say from personal experience that stealing Sarge's avatar will not accomplish that goal. It only made the mods a little nervous and me feel like a traitor to my country. I'll never do that again. 

I now believe that the powers of Sarge's avatar lie within him and are not transferable to others.

With you and George on this forum, I better copyright my avatar and/or petition Rob to impose a no-imping rule.

An expressionist rendition of Paganini in action. I wouldn't conceive of any other.  :)

Truthfully, I enjoyed your changes of avatar when they all had some link to Bogart. That was pretty damn cool.

I believe it is about ime to revert back to Bogey.....and stay there within the Bogart framework like you pointed out Sarge, no matter the temptation of one night flings.  I will have to deal with Mad Hatter later. ;D :D  Maybe I will send him a couple of cds for his trouble.  Would this be considered buying him off........you bet! 8)

That's a great avatar, Steve. Good color. Don't ever change it.

Thus spake Sarge ;D

I am glad that you longer have this text beneath your avatar, for I don't think it suits you.  :)
