Odd to think that I have been reading some of these posters for more than 10 years, and am only now seeing what they look like!

Added new photos to the gallery: AmericanMaid, astro, BobArrgh, bup, Ceejaytee, dogbutler, Doug Bowe, ems, flickster, Headrush042, Mindfield, My Darn Snake Legs, ratatoskK, rolandgunslinger, SoulFrost, swampbear, The Tao's Revenge, Thudlow Boink, Tripler, Tupug Anachi, VunderBob

And, as always, keep on sending in those pictures!

I will probably be updating the gallery about once a week from now on, so please be patient after you send in your photo, it may take several days for it to appear.

Anyone else disappointed that My Darn Snake Legs’ photo only shows him from the waist up?

Maybe to you, it does. To Zoe, it upsets her notion of how the universe is constructed.

For some reason, I always read tripler's name is tippler. I half-expected to see a photo of him holding a cocktail. The knife betwixt his teeth was better, though.

Someone with a username that comes after me alphabetically needs to submit their photo. I don't like being singled out in the "[first username] - [last username]" links

Don't like it???? There goes my plan to make a fast buck. I was going to start charging people extra for having their names appear as the first or last on an index page.
Maybe you can find someone who is tired of their board name and convince them to change it to Zyzzyx. Or else track down another user with a Z name after yours and badger them until they submit a picture.

By the way, I apologize, I was going to add photos over the week-end but I ran out of time so it will happen tonight, there are a few pictures in the queue.
Jragon: don't tell me you don't know anyone with a cell phone that can take pictures or a digital camera, because I will refuse to believe it!

Now, now boys, don't you fret your pretty little heads. Unintentionally Blank's, wife was prominently featured in his photo and there's no point in a girl pinning her hopes on something unattainable. And Elendil's Heir, I was going to mention you next! Honest!

1000 apologies for the delay, last week and this week-end turned out to be very busy and I didn't have a lot of free time.

Added new photos to the gallery: ElvisL1ves, Green Bean, Indyellen, Jimmy Chitwood, Slithy Tove, SpazCat, The Tooth, Vinyl Turnip, waterj2

modified: Jack Batty —added more recent photo

A prize goes to the first poster to find the newly added photo taken in Switzerland! Second prize to the first poster to find the newly added photo taken in Korea.

I don't mind not having been mentioned as Surly Chick's crush. Really, I don't. What doesn't kill me makes me stronger.

Thanks, but he's 38 in that photo. (40 now.) Is that still considered young?

It would be a big improvement in at least one case, and I don't mean Shibboleth.

Hasn't any other female here yet noticed that Vunderbob is a FIREMAN?

I don't know which is funnier; that I look like you think I look — or wondering what people who don't know what I look like THINK I might look like!

Seriously — I've had a pic on my profile here on the boards for some time; maybe you peeked at it at some point?

Not that I recall, no. I rarely check other posters' profiles.

What can I say? The pure form of Ellen Cherry was apparent to me, like shadows seen from a cave.

You know, if you're going to have the Dopername "Surly Chick," you shouldn't have such a big smile in the picture!

As to that question earlier about which picture doesn't look like the Dopername, I nominate MeanOldLady and BigBertha.

And that's exactly what I thought pseudotriton ruber ruber looked like.

I was just about to post in here - so sorry for the delay, the last update was more than a week ago! I was going to add more photos this week but I had two evening meetings for some other non-profit work I'm doing plus new things to learn at the office, but there will definitely be an update with more photos tonight (unless God strikes me dead during the day) and things should pick up in February.

Anyway I know you don't want to hear excuses, what you want is more photos and there will be new ones before midnight (California time) tonight.

Shoot! Because of a mistake I made one poster's picture didn't appear. It should be there by next week-end. I e-mailed that poster with the bad news. If anyone else has submitted a picture but doesn't see it in the gallery, please contact me and I will fix it.
