Hi All,

Thought I'd have a practice on this board before I make a pratt of myself on the main boards.

Must say, from reading so far, seems a friendly place. Ah well here we go......

You need to go to your Profile at the top of the page and edit that. You will find a part that asks if you want to upload an avatar.

Many thanks D M.

Think I'm starting to get the hang of this.

If I'm not mistaken that's the robot from the original "The Day the Earth  Stood Still".

Nice avatar anyway.

Certainly is the original DM.

Gort is his name. The original 'The Day The Earth Stood Still' is one of my favourite movies ever. Moralistic I know and a bit corny, but great all the same. One of the all time best movie quotes as well......

"Gort, Klatu barada nicto"

(no official translation ever given, lot's of speculation though).

Not sure whether or not we can go on about things unrelated to techie stuff. Maybe I'm supposed to talk about mobos n' all things computery. Thought I'd do that when I hit the main message boards.

Actually DM Gort is much better looking than you are. I've read the newspaper reports from when you last went outside in the 1960's, they are still talking about it!
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

No, absic. I can't believe that as there are laws against discimination on any count! ;D
There are nowadays, but the library has OLD newspapers, all brown and wrinkly, just like you! Reading through those old newspapers can be quite illuminating....... the Beast of Bodmin Moor wasn't a cat, it was you taking a stroll!

Heyy Absic that avatar is a good likeness, even down to your short leggies ;D

The legs only look short because of the way I took the picture. Bit disappointed though as they used to say the camera never lies! Well, I've proved that statement wrong!!  ;)
