Festive avatars


Recommended Posts

In the same friendly community forum vain as the (long forgotten) Birthday Place and monthly desktop sharing, how about, for the season, you change your avatar to something festive.

I've got the ball rolling.

A man after my own heart mta.

 

I was waiting for December but might as well dust off my old favourite a day early.

 

The birthday topic isn't quite dead yet, just not too many regulars to keep it ticking over, well ... regularly.

 

Mines coming up next month so bake a cake and get the balloons ready.

I'm still a newbie here, despite what my status says, but hope you all recognise this one.

Nah, the kitten minces enough. I'll leave it as it is. But I'm always aware of the season and do enjoy it.

 

It hasn't really snowed big here so far so that's got a lot to do with my positivity.

Hey nukecad.

 

Your name has to be a clue.

 

Christmas at Sellafield perchance?  attachicon.gifsmilie014.gif

 

 

 

EDIT: If I'm wrong I'll happily irradiate that self satisfied looking guy in the hat.

Oops, It's hat eating time. 

 

That's Springfield not Sellafield. 

 

Just ask for Homer Simpson.

Well slap my leg with a rolled up newspaper!

 

Nuke, Cumbria and twin cooling towers threw me completely.

 

Mind you, it would have helped if I'd ever watched The Simpsons, but, hat duly irradiated ...

Well fair enough, I do live close to Sellafield. And my online name does come from the fact that I used to be a CAD draughtsman/designer doing work for the nuclear site.

 

BTW- the twin cooling towers at Calder hall came down in September 2007.

 

I have a story about that, I knew the lads working for the Yorkshire demolition company that cleared them out, did all the hole drilling and placed the explosives.

After they had done all the hard work they were told to remove the explosives, and an American company came in, re-placed the explosives, pressed the button, and took all the credit..

The Yorkshire lads were not happy.

A great idea so here is my effort/story

 

I also will own up to being a "petrol head" and a "Ute" lover.............a "pickup" to some folk, and mine was Red in colour. For those down under in Aus. it was a reasonably hot 1964 EH Ute followed by a similar coloured quick EH Panel Van. Which used to run mid 14 sec's over the quarter mile..............Ah those were the days which I can barely remember.

- Now my "Felix the Cat" avatar has changed to a more appropriate one for the "Festive Season".

- We here in the Netherlands we don't look ahead to Christmas yet. First we still have "Sinterklaas" on the 5th of december. That's the event when people give each other presents. We don't do that with Christmas.

Heres mine.  C'mon, Corona, put a hat on that cat.  :lol:  :lol:

The new forum clips avatars/profile pictures with a circular mask, which cuts off bits of all my favourite xmas ones.
(The 'old' software had a rectangular mask).

It even made a mess of my 'standard' avatar when I tried to put it back, and has cut the 'orbits' of the one I have put on for now.

It doesn't seem to matter how much white space you have around the image, it still crops to the geometry in a rectangle and then masks that rectangle with a smaller circle.
(Guess I'll have to edit my favourites in order to get them to display correctly, I see that mta has done it by putting a circle around his).

Nobody likes the new forum software much, but messin' with the avatars has to be the last straw!:lol:

Software changes and so real humans have to work out how to cope with these stupid machine limitations.
