Okay, so a new avatar isn't exactly big news, but it's something to do as I await the results of my pre-bookings at Dotster for the .Tel Landrush, which, so far seems to be still "pending."
I have uploaded this avatar at both Twitter and Namepros.
Yes, I created this myself (tweaked from a larger graphic--also my original work--and, no, you may not use it as your avatar).
Other than the long red hair, I look very little like my avatar. For one thing, I'm a boomer, so that should tell you something.
Ah, the internet: No one knows if you're old, young, a dog (literally--see Snark.me), or a precocious seven-year-old kid.
Like advertising, avatars are designed to present a desired image.
Ah, the fountain of youth.
