There was a dude in this forum that turned his posting status into a pong game (with an avatar), I can't seem to find his posts, and I forget his name. For some strange reason I have the sudden desire to know where he got it and if they have versions for other types/themes of message boards. So, if the dude with the cool avatar reads this, please tell me!

You speak of the mighty rojaro. I think he recently changed to a different pong icon. Looks like he has more bricks missing now.

That's not Pong...it's Breakout.

You're right, I'm sorry. Breakout.

Actually as a former Mac SE user I prefer to call it "Brickles".

On the Mac SEs at school, Arkanoid was our breakout clone of choice.

Hey rizzo - you've got a knack for puffing up egos. First I'm your true lord and master and now rojaro is "the mighty rojaro". How far is it gonna go? :)

I'm setting up the much-anticipated prize fight between yourself and rojaro.

Phong vs. Rojaro
The Thrilla On Mozilla

I'm the "Don King" of the Gentoo forums. So naturally my job is the hype each of my stable of forum fighters to create a media feeding frenzy.

I managed to get a hero classification from rizzo, for nothing more than demonstrating my ignorance.

Now don't think I go around worshipping forum users willy-nilly. You have to earn your status from me. Sometimes you have to come up with a fantastic floppy install guide, or just have a funny avatar, or profess that you have never used Microsoft Windows.

PS n0n is also known as the incredible edible n0n from now on, for reasons I won't go into right here.

:lol:

I wished I'd never used MS Windows :D

The Genie told me to quit bothering her though.

hahahaha ... i just stumbled over this thread .. well and i find it actually pretty curious that so many people like my avatar :)

i actually deleted my old avatar by accident and didnt have a backup of it, nor did i save the original file ... so i've made a new one ... i know, it's not as cool as my original one (my opinion) but i like it anyway ... :)

i've also made lots of other graphics stuff and here is a little sneak preview of my upcoming homepage .. i assume you're gonna like it as much as i do, but i'd love to read some responses about the screenshot :)

[img:0d0225b13c]http://no-spoof.de/hp-preview.png[/img:0d0225b13c]

the mozilla skin will be also finished soon, but both wont be available until i've finished and launched my superbig-megasecret-geheimtumor-project (which i assume most of you will love even more) :)

@rizzo ... thanks :)

Dude, that does look pretty sweet. I'm always interested in a good mozilla skin. :)

Yeah be sure to let us know when your skin is done. Lo-Fi is my current skin of choice but I wouldn't mind a little more flavor. Nothing too much, mind you. Most of the skins out there are just an eye-sore.
