Rainy, dreary day in Washington DC today. And it's FRIDAY. Sigh… On an even more boring note, I'm slowly making some tweaks to everyone's "user account" (eventually I'll even get around to 'prettying up' your user pages) and you can upload a much better quality photo/picture for your user avatar here at ComixTalk now. Just log in and click on "my account" over there at the bottom of the right hand column, then "edit" and at the bottom of the page you should see where you can upload a picture for your user avatar.
