    Do you make your own avatar, or just grab a cool image and use that?

    I tend to have a bit of fun with my avatar after I've been on a forum more that just briefly. Hopefully folks will either laugh at me or with me. I don't take myself seriously.

    This is my current Xmas avatar.





    My regular Ubuntu avatar, with a ring donut in the middle being eaten by Pacman, was merely prompted by the general 'Coffee Cup' idea on the forums. Ironiclly, I've given up coffee, as it's been cited as a possible cause of tinnitus. Of wich I have a severe case.

    I no longer have my original images for these avatars, due to various computer crashes, mostly caused my myself.
    Forced back to Windows! TEMPORARILY!
    I'm just trying to foul up my PC, ok? Permanent noob, that's me. Have a donut anyway!

    I am an unashamed thief of avatars and of imagery in general. Especially from the internet. If you post a cool pic online, within 24 hours I'll have it.

    I used to use this picture, which I made myself, as my avatar:



    but people started judging my posts only because of my avatar and not because of the content of the posts.

    I found my current one elsewhere.

    I made my avatar, although I didn't make it as an avatar. I made it as a logo for my website, but it works so well as an avatar that I use it all over the web. Nothing like a little self-branding.

    Occasionally I update my avatar, and it is most generally always a self portrait of me. I used to use Zorro or Sherlock Holmes avatars, but over the past year, I've resorted to pictures of myself. I receive many comments over this fact, too

    This avatar has stuck with me ever since I found it in Google Images.

    I think it's pretty obvious I didn't make my avatar

    I had someone else take a picture of myself
    Code:
    while true; do echo -n "RiceMonster "; done
