No, this isn't a shameless advertisement, we don't get any money if you buy the app, and it was free for us to add it to the Forum. Bill asked me to install Tapatalk on the Forum so mobile users would have a way to keep in touch while on the go. (I think he wants it for his iPhone.) Here is the info from Tapatalk including their screenshots:

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

Yep, and he did a really convincing job telling me how much the Community members were going to want it. :)

You should definitely give us a review once you've used it for a few days. I'm curious to hear how it works out.

Jay, isn't there a version of that avatar where the head explodes? And can we mortals do animated gifs for avatars?

I can't take credit for the animation. I got it at Free-Avatars.com. The one I picked out initially was animated, but when I resized it on their site they gave me a static one. I figured out what happened yesterday and replaced the static one with the animated one to get the effect I intended.

:lol: If there were one where the head explodes, I didn't see it. I would love that! Now you've got me thinking about making one. Yes, you can download animated GIFs as avatars or make your own and use them. Most full-featured photo editors like Photoshop and GIMP allow you to roll your own animated GIFs.
