Hell hath gone Green......SDMB Poker, 2nd Qtr., 2012

How do I get an avatar at Pokerstars? I believe I found the right drop-down menu with “get/select image” but trying to click on it did nothing.

That’s strange. I did it by finding the menu item you clicked on, and that brought up a dialogue box that asked me to upload a .jpeg or .gif. Submit a picture to them, wait a few days for them to approve it, and voila. Is a pop-up blocker or script blocker stopping the dialogue box from showing up? The “get/select image” wasn’t grayed out?

I don’t know if you need to download the .com client, instead of the .net client. The .com client has improved functionality over the .net client; e.g., in-progress hand histories, that you can send to a file on your computer; the .net client grays out the hand history option.

The “Select/change image” option under the Account tab is gray, not black and is nonfunctional. Wonder how I could get the .com client instead of the .net client. I don’t even know how to determine which version I now have. Since I don’t now have, so far as I know, in-progress hand histories, I must have the .net client.

My Hooptie
(Technically, it’s a '93 Cutlass, inherited from my Auntie. She has been a great old car, but is really showing her age)

When he’s not rounding IRL.

Ok, so it’s the Bar Trivia circuit, and it’s only at our regular weekly location…

But, that’s where I’ve been here lately, if not at work on Thursdays [Or Early Friday Mornings]

For the uninitiated:
It’s play money, so don’t be shy. Join the game & have some fun.

That’s still a lot of goldfish…
Oh, and R.I.P. to the St. Louis Blues.

A bump for tonight…although I might be missing the game again due to family issues (FIL)…have thought about posting it in the PIT, but it would be quite lengthy, since it involves many family members (in-laws) and how they treat their 88 year-old father.

DURRRR. Nevermind.
