(Admin note) There is no longer a need to attach an avatar to a post to use it. Simply visit your profile to upload an avatar.)


Apologies for starting a new thread for this, but I want to change my avatar, and need to stash it somewhere.

If you're interested, it's a picture of me, relaxing after a day on the slopes at Sauze d'Oulx in the Italian Alps, taken in March 2002. Unfortunately, the shots from Courchevel (French Alps) this year don't look so good -- it was too cloudy. The snow was great, though.

(My previous avatar was from Ibiza, 2001, but my hair has grown back since then, and the Sauze one is more representative).

I humbly suggest that people who wish to stash their avatar somewhere could do worse than to follow up to this post. A paragraph or two about the photo might be cool, too.

Translation: I have my own web server, but I'd rather place my tiny avatar image on someone else's web server, so mine doesn't get "empegged."

Ba'ath party, Arab political party, in Syria and in Iraq. Its main ideological objectives are secularism, socialism, and pan-Arab unionism. Founded in Damascus in 1941 and reformed, with the name Ba'ath, in the early 1950s, it rapidly achieved political power in Syria.

Sadaam Hussein is a member of the Ba'ath party.

Yeah, it was attached to an interview with an expert in Chemical / Bio Hazard Response.

Interrogated, OH, OH, can I?

Ironicially mine isn't hosted off empeg.comms.net, but instead empeg.miniinfo.net (the actual logo site). Since the servers were combined, I never bothered changing it.

And the nickname Drakino came from twisting Draco after seeing Dragonheart. The avatar is from some dragon picture I found around the same time.

I so wish I could still climb. Had to give it up after I tore my rotator cuff (completely unrelated). It just never healed fully enough, I have a hard time even climbing a rock wall now. I refused surgery, and therapy took about a year to get ~90% of the strength back. It's my right shoulder, and can still come out though, if at the wrong angle with my weight on it. I tried indoor climbing a few months back, and 45 minutes it, crossing the ceiling, it popped out. Yeowch. Glad I had a belay.

I too would like to put my icon up here. I can't imagine what it looks like to the admins of my school's servers to have all these requests coming from here

One of my 5 piranhas. They are about 7 to 8 inches long now. They live in a 125 gallon tank with a jack dempsey. They eat other fish and various raw meats.

Bleach = Nirvana Bleach. Nirvana was one of my favorite bands. It pained me that 98% of the losers in my high school thought "Nevermind" was Nirvana's first album. I did lots of BBSing back in the day, so this was my handle.

In college, I became involved in Quake/TF clans, and had to modify my handle accordingly, and simply appended the clan initials to my nickname. Back then, it was CYA, for Clan You_Asshole. The clan was named after the 2nd Novell Personal Netware network my friends had for lan parties back in the 90s (we used netware to share files). When you booted and the drivers loaded, it would ask: "Would you like to log in [Network Name]" We simply named our network You_Asshole, to complete the sentence.

Our clan died because most of the people in it failed/dropped out of college because they played too much Quake/TF. Some other friends and myself formed a lan party group aptly named LPB - for Lan Party of Baltimore. For those familiar with online gaming - you all should know what an LPB is. We have lan parties in the Baltimore area about every month or two. And guess what cool little device provides the tunes at such events??

So, the fish and my nickname have absolutely nothing to do with eachother. Someday I'll set up a webcam so anyone can watch my fish eat things.

And here I thought LPB meant low ping bastard, for people with better net connections and therefore an advantage in quake.

This is a picture of me that I took tonight after I got home from work. It is currently one of about 5 pictures of me that exist that are more recent than 5 years ago. I look like [censored], like I do in every picture.

This is why I studiously avoid having my picture taken.

If you find the Cincinnati meet pictures you might see the top of my head, in the back...

Well shoot, then. I don't browse with avatars turned on, but since everyone else seems to be posting one, and, hey, it adds another to the post count...



It's not really me -- I'm not black, I'm not old, and I can't fit my finger through my nose horizontally. Vertically may be another matter.

You have no idea how many memory cards and rolls of film I've paid to replace after someone tried to take my picture.

I've gone through two in the year or so I've been a member, but I went back to my original one for some reason.
First one is me sailing off of Cape Anne.
Second one is me on top of Mauna Kea (14,000 ft) on the big island of Hawaii. Sailed there from CA this past winter. (Hawaii not the top of the mountain.)
The stylin' glasses are for looking at the sun. Notice the cool observatories in the background.

nope...I don't like that one...let's try again (feelin' mildly schizo).

EDIT: oops...forgot my paragraph about the photo: That photo was taken from the photo below. From left to right: brother-in-law, sister, me, my girlfriend, brother (also an empeg owner), sister-in-law. We went to Kings Dominion in Virginia on the weekend before Halloween. If you want to avoid lines, I recommend going in late fall. I've done it two years in a row and walked on rides all day long.
