1) How do you post GIFs of your avatar picture on this site? It doesn't seem to work.

2) How can I ensure/insure the visual quality of the GIFs with GIMP?

Here is my new avatar thingie posted from imgur.

So. Hypnotizing. O_O

He's correct.

Is VirtualBox still the best free virtualization program on Windows? I just want to be able to test old version of Internet Explorer, and I don't really like/trust how IETester works, so I want an XP and Win7 virtual machine to be able to run (I'm on Win8 now).

XP Mode (i.e. Virtual PC) in Win 7 Pro works pretty well. We use it at work for a few things we have that aren't Win 7 compatible. I think Life Hacker recently ran a guide on how to load other OS's in XP Mode's version of Virtual PC.

But...Sinatar? Had an animated one. Hardly noticeable. I think it's where his 'subtle and awesome' tag comes from.

Thanks, I did use XP mode for a while for IE8 I believe. I did get XP and Win7 going this afternoon in Virtualbox though. They work well, so I have access to IE8 and IE9 now. It's good because in IE9 on a site I just worked on, IETester was throwing out errors in IE9 that aren't there in a regular IE9 browser.

Briefly. Again, subtle.

There are others...

And now I stare at everyone's avatar hoping for movement...

I swear it blinked at me!!! Otherwise I have wasted a perfectly good time playing a staring game.

Well I'm afraid only madness lies within my avatars eyes.

And don't feel too bad, I spent a good three minutes staring at Minarchist's avatar, and the only thing I got out of it was I sneaking suspicion that its watching me.

Just check to see if it's a .gif or not. Chrome easily identifies Minarchist's avatar as a .jpg through 'Inspect Element.'

That was his plan all along:)

EoP or Ethernet over power line. Does anyone have an opinion on it? I want to have a fast and stable connection.

I haven't used it personally. I don't think it's going to be as fast as a CAT5 cord, but it might be decent. This review seems to show between 150-200 MBits/s, so it's not bad.

I did also read though that it'll work better in a newer house with new electrical. An old house with decades-old electrical wiring might be spotty. Seems like a very YMMV situation.

I'd try to find a place locally that has a good return policy, try it out at home and if it doesn't work like you expected, take it back.

Is there a Goodjer GOTY vote going on somewhere? Was it Clocky who normally does all the math for that?

If there's a post or whatnot, please point me in it's direction...

What's good about Total Failure 2?

So how's the end of the world going for you guys? I had some lag issues, and an odd obsession with telling people Yog Soggoth is the Way, the Gate, and the Key.

Odd because you all already know that, right?

Yep that is odd.

I even got the tattoo for it here on the inside of my elbow.

Pity it never stops bleeding. Must be the fact that if you look really closely, you'll see that each tattoo ink dot is actually a tiny lamprey mouth constantly moving...
