How about T'Bird?
On account of its impact on the forum layout, how about Her Squishiness?
The wife objects. That's HER nickname.

Check that--I don't love it so much. There's something of a side effect in Google Image search:



Time for a debug?
Gep, fyi,I just tried a couple of different searches in images, I'm not getting that problem. Just thought you should know.

Nominated for most accurate.

Gonna go try the Greasemonkey thing now.

Edit: The script is awesome. For those like me who might not have ever done a script before, it might help to explain that they need to copy the code and paste it into notepad, then save it with your filename. I kept looking for a download link on that page until I realized what I should do.

Re: TrekBBS Contest: Name the Twitter Bird!

The Twitter bird and I have reconciled, so I'll suggest a new name.

Has anyone suggested Conrad Birdie from 'Bye Bye Birdie' yet? If not, that's my choice, since Conrad Birdie was a play on words of Conway Twitty (who was originally supposed to play the role on Broadway) and that's just a little bit of cleverness that no one is going to remember or care about but me.

Or we can just call the bird Conway Twitty and cut out the middleman.
