My Paintshop Pro-fu is weak, but I whipped up a Grammaton Cleric clock icon thingie. Yay.

It's not a requirement. I dread the day when every avatar on this ship agrees with mine.

I think it's supposed to be an indication of amusement.

But, the majority of the world knows this as a type of flash memory.

You know, it's really a very common emoticon. No need to make Ginga feel like she's speaking Chinese. If you need it explained, XD represents laughing so hard your eyes close.

If you want weird, try those face-on/manga emoticons like ^_^.

Being pedantic, neither of them is really an emoticon - an emoticon being the image that they're used as shortcuts for - they're much closer to being traditional ASCII art.

And the XD one is particularly annoying because I've been using them (the memory cards) for about 2 years now... it still rankles that everytime I talk to someone about photography online they think I'm making fun of them

Of course, the correct response when someone uses '^_^' on you is to ask what happened to their nose... :wink:

No, *this* is weird:

*(B||
___\\

A guy wearing a toque, ski goggles, and a scarf (although in this particular font the goggles look a little misshapen).
(also, ignore the grey line - it's to make things line up and I don't know what the background colour is.)
(I'm putting way too much effort into this.)

Following up on a comment from e of pi... arrrrgh. You're right. The different heights of those new banners are driving me nuts. When I get home I'll rework them -- they're pretty quick to make with my current program.

Speaking of which, those who, like me, have struggled to find a good freeware image editor would be well advised to try Ultimate Paint, the one I'm using now. It takes getting used to, but far less than a monstrosity like The GIMP; it's powerful enough for my needs, and best of all, it doesn't nag. Check it out.

I didn't find the GIMP all that hard to get used to...

Admittedly, I came to it off the back of 3 or 4 years on Paint Shop Pro 6, 7 amd 8 - a suite that has the same manic love of hiding options menus in the damdest places...
