    As a brand spankin' new member here, (2nd day and about 20 posts already) I wish to personally thank Mulder for sticking his neck out to keep this site useful, helpful, respectable, and fun.

    I have only read about 1% of the posts here but that's over 100 I'm sure. It is easy to see who the regulars are, and who's just passing through for some friendly advice. I had intended to be part of the latter group, but found that the wealth of information and humor here has me feeling as if I have just started another bad habit. LOL So I had no choice but to share some time with all y'all.

    I have also found that it is satisfying to help someone out, if I can, with a software issue.

    I'm an old DOS guy. Built 8086's and 8088's in my garage back in the late 80's. I hated Windows when it first came out but I was quite naive and ignorant to the fact that the hardware would catch up. And BOY did it!

    After a while, I'd like to get some help adding a little animated icon like all you regulars have. Can I use my own? Or is there a list of GIF files here to choose from?

    ::cool:

    P.S. I may be in Arkansas, but I was raised a California surfer dude, so please understand there's some culture mixin' going on with me. LOL

    Good day,

    Hi Mike! I'm sure you'll find Random terribly addictive. Post your picture and Rhett might just add you to the Rumor Mill someday. After 100 posts you can have a custom avatar. You can use your own custom gif but it can't be larger than 50 X 50. See you around the boards. (Don't get involved with that fun game. They're a bad lot. ;))

    Welcome to TSG LANMaster!

    You are now hooked just like the rest of us! :D

    As far as the aimated icon, once you have enough posts (can't remember how many) you can upload your own.

    THere may be some parameters on size, but that's the only thing I can think of.


    Hope you enjoy yourself here! :D

    John

    So welcome to the surfer dude with the gun rack in his truck. Now you've gone and done it - you can never leave. Enjoy yourself and thanks for helping. We can always use the extra help. ;)

    I'm one of the old timers and have been here for a while. :eek:

    22 posts and 10 are in random, it's not looking good for you:eek:

    now a word of advise i'd leave the word spankin, OUT of any future posts, surprise Candices radar isn't going crazy already

    enjoy your internment

    and mar is an old timer, so as the new guy it's you job to dust her off periodically:D

    Welcome aboard Lanny. Most of the 50,000+ members have been smart enough never to post here, clearly you weren't, so as others have said, you're stuck.;) It is imperative that you spend 24/7 here, so that you don't miss anything;) Enjoy!

    Welcome LANMaster.
    How the heck did a dude like you end up in AR?
    As you can see we are a friendly lot and tend not to bite to often nor too hard. Glad your here and willing to lend a hand when you can.
    Enjoy your stay and watch out for the monkey in the Tavern, he can be a real pain.

    Is this avatar in use by anyone?

    If so, I want to change it.

    Thanks for the very warm welcome!
