Ah hell, now that the purpose of this thread has been hijacked I might as well...

Anyone like my new Avatar?

DB, I did an image search for your moniker and there were many results. This was the first 3 "decent" ones:







I venture to say any would be an improvement on the rodentia. Happy

I've already seen all 3 of them-the last being an inspiration for a certain story here and the first was actually my avatar about two years ago... I don't think any of them quite "fit" me though. Sad

An open node refers to a wireless network in which is not properly secured so that outsiders (and wardrivers) can easily connect into it.

DB: I DID see that image but it didn't look much like an example for you but if you can shrink it or take out an appropo chunk, more power to ya'. Shit-Eating Grin

Gamer: interesting avs can be searched in the Google image search. Give a keyword and you'll usually find a few (zillion). Copy the image when you are satisfied (and it's the right max size), then copy to your drive. In your DOS Games personal info, go to the bottom, delete current image, then upload the new one from the stored location on your drive (enter the path). You could just give the URL from the site it was from, but if the site goes down you may loose the av. All us thralls will be awaiting the new you with baited breath (we're bettin' you ace Chk-M8's!). Congratulatory

DB: interesting.... If I change avatars, all of my old posts change avatar to the most recent choice. You change them and they are almost random. I've found the rodentia on some, a cat on some, a b&w poochie on some, etc. And the old ones don't stick to the messages they were made with. (See the 3 pics I found note... where's the rodent?) You waving the Magic Wand of Sysop or something? Confuzzled

Aah, I see, DB's using PHP to change his avatar to a random one every pageview.

php, and it's hardly magic. Sarcastic

Code:

<?php
header ("Content-Type: image/jpeg");
$pics = array (
    "image",
    "image",
    "image",
//replace "image" with name of file, copy as many times as necessary
);
srand ((double) microtime() * 10000000);
shuffle ($pics);
$pic = $pics["0"];
$CLynePic = imageCreateFromJPEG($pic);
ImageJPEG($CLynePic);
?>


It'll give you a different image every time you load a page. (Note that it's set to microtime() * 10000000 so wait about a second before re-reloading)

Right click on my avatar and click "properties... what other types of files end in ".php"?

What I meant was Picture It!, Create-a-card, and Slideshow files aren't C++.
