    That's pretty funny. But no.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    I think simple "Yes" and "No" would do it.
    Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
    What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
    All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
    For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

    I say no, since I spent a long time creating my 55x55 avatar which I couldn't re-upload now anyway since it's animated.

    Plus as a dial-up user I think CBoard is good as is, bandwidth-wise.

    You would keep your current avatar, it would just be smaller than others

    I know, but if my avatar is restricted to 55x55 then everyone else's should be too. Plus there's bandwidth, aesthetic layout, and server space issues. (Can you imagine how much disk space CBoard must be taking up already?)

    Seriously, you'd be better off lobbying for animated avatars. I think you'd get better support. At least animated avatars used to be allowed; avatars larger than 55x55 haven't been for as long as I've been here. (Has it really been four years? Wow.)

    P.S. Isn't it a pain to log in with a username like that?

    >> At least animated avatars used to be allowed;

    Huh? Am I just seeing things in that psychedelic swirl? Yours definitely looks animated to me (could be the magic mushrooms, of course).
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    DWKS:

    You should check out this thread from last month, animated avatars have already been re-allowed

    Ah, I'm out of the loop. Sigh.

    Your avatar had me fooled for a moment there. I was scrolling through a thread and thought, "Hey! There have been a lot of replies since I last posted!" But it was only your post from a little while ago.

    @Sebastiani: It was just the upload of animated avatars which was disabled (by accident, if I remember correctly, but obviously my brain isn't very up-to-date at the moment). People with animated avatars were allowed to keep them.

    Well, if you insist. In fact, why don't you post it in plaintext right here on this forum so that everyone who comes by can appreciate its obfuscatedness?

    Ah, never mind. Then we'd get into discussing passwords, which I'd rather not.

    Me neither, as mine is only 1 character (and it's in the alphabet). :-)
