Troubles with avatar :(

I can't seem to get avatars to work for me, I've tried linking to off site but that didn't seem to work either. Is this a common problem?

Hiya, guys.

If the remote avatar's file size is greater than 10k it won't work.
Try saving the image to your machine and checking the file size and if it's 10k or less, upload it from your machine.
Let me know if you're still having issues.

It's 8kb and 100*80 size. I do believe otherwise I wouldn't have spent all this time trying to make it work, I have the best pic for an avatar now and I want to use it!

Speaking of Avatars - can anyone shrink this one down to a usable size for me ... and ...um ... someone else...

I dunno what's up with this. Gah!
So I ended up doing it manually. You should see your avatar now.

PS - Caleb, can you post the image you wanted to use and I'll set it up manually for you?

You can't do this esp. for Daniel can you? Andy Finlayson (thanks Andy!) got it down to a humble 44 kb!
I'm sure no one will mind the extra download everytime Daniel posts. He is after all 'cynic-cool!' ;)

I can attach it to your profile.
But not Daniel unless he asks me to.
:P
