    Ok, I need help (in more ways then one but this problem can be solved) Can someone help me find a Christmas or Winter Hobbes? I've been looking for one, found one that was too big and I'm not sure if it would work anyway. I'm not sure how to do these darn pixels anyway. So, if anyone out there could help me that would be great.

    Well I found one that would work, But I kept getting a message that it wasn't working when I updated it. No idea why. but for Christmas, I have a tiny little Calvin and Hobbes sledding from a site I think was called 3D Calvin.

    I'm helping, unofficially, of course, to promote MTV Asia Awards to an international event. Hopefully, one day...

    For some reason that made me laugh out loud.
    Hepcat, I could be happy with one cherub, but I don't know how to cut it down. If you have any tips, please pass them along.

    Does it say something bad about my character that I noticed the cigarettes and beer right away?

    Lucy, I never noticed. It went right over my head. I aways thought it was just one of those cutesy little cherub pics.

    I like it!

    Of course not! (because if it did, what would it say about my character that I picked that as my avatar? Oh, right. It would probably say accurate things. )

    Sorry to take so long to get back to you Lucy. You just open your image in an art program (photoshop, irfan, one of those) and crop the picture. It would work best if you started with a big image, cropped it, then resized it not to exceed 125 pixels in height or width.

    But now that you pointed it out I see the naughty cherubs just fine. You might just want to leave it untouched and subtle.

    I used the French national team's football (soccer) jersey. Looking forward to Euro 2004!
