    One of the defaults for this theme is the avatar next to each comment. The way to use them is to first register at www.gravatar.com and choose/upload an avatar. The software will associate your email address with the avatar and automatically insert the picture. WARNING: This is only an experiment. If I see that gravatar is causing the load to slow dramatically, I’ll pull the plug. Hence, don’t spend a whole lot of time tweaking your avatar.


    Here’s mine (when and if it ever shows up). I changed pics as the first one wasn’t square.

    UPDATE: Bunch of comediennes in the comments. 🙂 Here’s a current pic. Same pose as before, but 450 miles South. I have hair; I just mostly shave it off.

    Thanks. I figured I needed to grow some hair on my chin to replace the hair that used to be on the top of my head.

    Well, now I have a gravatar. What a crazy mixed up world we live in.

    It was May 2004. Now it’s of about 15 minutes ago. The original post and comments are still “available” here.

    Gravatar test. The picture should show up when this is published.

    Obviously it didn’t show. Hmmm.

    Andrea,

    How’d you get yours to work? Everyone else is just a star.

    They probably aren’t showing for some because of this little note I just got: “Pending gravatar:
    Thank you for submitting your gravatar. Before this gravatar can become active, our panel of gravatar rating experts must rate your gravatar’s content. When this has been done, you will be notified by email and others will be able to see your gravatar.”

    HAHAHA! Andrea and Blackbeard’s flag, but no hats yet, at least as I see it at this moment, but it still gives me a feeling of . . . something, like I’m cool finally. I’m sure as I’m posting this that everyone else will show up making me less cool, but that’s what I get.

    In real life, Daryl does not look as if he’s just stepped off the cover of a country album.

    Oh?
