After a brief dalliance with Major Calloway from The Third Man (Trevor Howard), I've returned for a spell with the avatar I had ten years ago or so, only in higher definition.

Familiar?

I used to watch repeats of the show on daytime TV as an undergrad.

A very "family friendly" show. Never saw any of those corpses he was working on.

So who gets Ruprecht the monkey boy? That was a brilliant avy. One of the best ever.

I think I'll try Major Calloway, then Avon, then Jack Hawkins, just to confuse matters!! Or a pic of me. One of my colleagues reckoned I looked like a young Jack Klugman (the big nose does it) though I'm much less shouty than Qunicy, a character always on the edge of bellowing!

Just a query, wondered why, although looking perfectly fine before submitting same, my own always has a small, green triangle, at top left.

I've noticed a couple of others similar!

Your post above, which I would have seen if I had been on the right discussion - my immediate thought was The Odd Couple. You could think in that vein for a while.

It's not just that mate, I spend hours uploading different avatars, testing what the problem was.

'Why do they all still have that damned spoiler of a green triangle at the top left corner...'.

'It's definitely not there when I upload the avatar..'

'The hell am I doing wrong here...?

I wasn't sure if I should change my avatar but then I just decided to do-ooh-woo- it!

LOL - I have to really stop myself from channelling Flashheart in every post now. I think it would become quite tedious for everybody. But good god, what a character!
