Re: PICTURE POST!

Yeah well, I've been taken for a woman on-line (by males of this board even!) so I suppose it's just a thing that happens inside the mind of the beholder; in reality it doesn't matter what people are (nationality, age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity...) on the net, as long as you get along, right?!

Re: PICTURE POST!

that sounds like fun! I think I still have a pic of myself, age 5 or so, with my favourite toy: a rubber spider that would jump if you pressed a small airbag =)

It's funny how one changes over the years, isn't it? I used to be such a thin teenager and now I am quite overweight. But as a former BF of mine put it: there can never be enough of the person you love

It's an annual event: the first week of December is black & white avatar week -for those who's gotten tired of the x-massy red, white and green colours that by then have been around for anything up to two months
Here's one of mine -Me with (on!) an x-mas gift:

(not the actual avatar; a picture I've used to make an avatar.

You look lovely.
Yes, you do, RevdKathy. Congrats on the weight loss!

TSQ, your art is fascinating!

I'm just curious... why had this thread gone to 10000+ posts, when most seem to be shut down at 2000? It loads sooo slowly. (Of course, slowly is a relative term. We've gotten so spoiled by the internet.)

For board software reasons it used to be that no thread could be more than 1000 posts long. I think the number of posts deemed 'maximum' these days is in the neighbourhood of 8000.

Why this thread is larger is because it's the mods of Misc. that decide when to close.

And if it loads very slow it's most likely because there's some large (filesize!) images on the latest page -should load faster once we get started on a new page

ETA: this is a new page! -does it still go to slow for you?

^Slower than most pages, yes. Of course it doesn't help that I don't check this thread regularly, so I end up with several pages to go through at a time.

Don't bother! I took that pic, and a whole pile more of you. I could post a great load of images of you and you couldn't delete them!

I think I've seen one or two other photos of Bob in recent years but I always forget what you look like, man. Sorry about that. I liked your jacket in that picture, BTW.

You probably saw my pic on twitter, think I've only posted on the board once or twice in 11 years.
Is this where I say "oh that old thing?"

Yes, you're right. It was over on Twitter. But I knew I'd seen you a couple of times before.
