Me as a "half-baked seer"? :o Actually, I feel quite comfortable as a "CD-RW Player". That is an honourable title and describes well what I do with them. A "playful" attitude is something to preserve. :D (The avatar is not there for all ages either).

That's a good suggestion. Perhaps we could modify to "Undercooked Clairvoyant" to complete the name/avatar/skills theme.

Whoa! That's right! It has been too long since I properly addressed the Great Polyhedral One. :oops: I beg your forgiveness, Esteemed Platonic Solid Potentate. :P

Why Platonic? As in Platonic ideals, or tending toward the spiritual and pure? I guess they are one and the same anyway, but still..

Plato did more than just philosophize. Check out "Platonic Solids" as a phrase: 8)

Hey Dodecahedron, how about a temporary change to your avatar?

I know you like the Escher, but I think that ^ would make a pretty cool avatar too.

nice find. yeah, it would.

i usually use this one:

as to why i don't use such as your green or my blue rotating dodecahedrons - well, you'd laugh (especially considering last week's history in the Beer Garden) - they're larger then the 6K size rule! :o

anyway, as you've discovered once before, my usual avatar

has a dodecahedron in it! :P
yeah, it's kind of hard to see 'cause it's small.
