So, I decided that I finally needed to make myself an avatar. Using my mediocre skills with my camera, picasa, and gimp, I managed to turn this photo of Dok Dentokk (an orc character whom I think represents me nicely):
The picture was resized, of course. Now if I could just figure out how to make interesting text effects in Gimp, I could make it look more interesting. But for now, it fits the bill methinks!
Also, in case you were wondering, The orc is a Gorkamorka Bad Doc which I converted by chopping off his pistol and replacing it with a crude pair of forceps. Open wide!!!
