And then there's pie. Well, a croissant actually. How could you be anything else? Fresh, French, indulgent, yummie, a bit flaky (okay, very flaky), thoroughly simple, honest, and wholesome.

I'm working on an avatar submission for you. But meanwhile, I can write you a script that will randomly serve up one of the avatars in a list, if you like.

Ahem, back at ya! That was a school hall corridor. Ahem.

For my bathroom wall, we decided to go with faux finish paint instead; the concrete block look was so passe!

oooh an avatar from nekokami !! yay !! i can't wait ! AND a script !! yay !! i love scripts... in which case i will have to add the credit line to the actual avatar like slayda suggested. unless you can also change my signature with the script ? or some other text displayed in my profile ? should i put all the avatars all together in a directory online somewhere ? can i dynamically add more avatars without modifying the script ? what language will you write it in ? will you show it to me, so i can try to figure out how it works ?

(me jumping up and down, this is all too much excitement)

I can't easily change the sig line with the same script and I'm not sure how to keep a separate script in sync, but I might be able to add the credit below the avatar image. Putting all the avatars together in a directory online somewhere would be one way, but as long as we have a list of URLs where they can be found, that would be sufficient. You'll be able to edit the script to add more avatars as they come in. I'll probably write it in perl, which you can read to see how it works. I usually comment my code.

Don't look for it before this weekend, though.

Edit: BTW, you can get a maneki neko like the one in my avatar at Mrs. Lin's Kitchen. Though you might prefer this one:

You're the spark that makes things happen - just like this cattle prod! Okay, scratch that one.

yay !!! no pressure, you just do whatever / whenever you want and i'll be happy.

yes, abundant comments please, that would be brilliant. between *2IMP.pl from Nick and your script pretty soon i'm going to start learning perl by osmosis. well, it will be a good change from html, although in theory ActionScript was the priority...

i suspect i'm getting far too excited about code. i *must* be a geek.

see, this is the beauty of collaboration. in my wildest, most risqué dreams i never would have thought of a cattle prod as an avatar. i'm a little afraid to touch it in fact. that's VR, always doing his best to expand our collective horizon and take the discussion to a new level.

i rather like the one on the "bathroom wall" in fact... although, technically, you shouldn't pin down a pinwheel... the new one is good too.
