In your opinion does a person's avatar have any meaning? if not, should it have meaning?

I think that it does give an insight into the person's personility.

Sometimes you could get something about them from their avatar. Like some people you can tell don't like void main() and others who knows. And you I think marines

Avatars are meaningless... true insight lies in a person's title.

it has meaning if the person want it to, but if they don't, then they don't... sure, they can give a little insight into their personality, but who cares?

If you can find meaning in a toaster, do tell.

It's meaningless, as well as the title...
It's just for fun!
Although you can creat a small idea about someone based on his avatar or title.

Well, at least nobody has to go through the uncomfortable process of telling you anymore. We were down to drawing straws. Sorry.

Hehe... a recursive avatar... Gosh I'm tempted to change my avatar now, don't know what it should be, any suggestions? I was thinking I could use my AIM one. Hm!

And yes, well, it depends on how much you think your avatar is a reflection of yourself, really. Some might tell you mine is quite fitting hehe.

Disguised, I couldn't agree more. But you know you just set this thread up for anti-american rants. Here we go...

If I just wanted ports I'd use Gentoo. BSD's just seem more professional than Linux is. I had all kinds of troubles with getting Linux stuff working how it was supposed to, but it's been nothing but smooth sailing in FreeBSD. I hate distros too. FreeBSD has one unified very stable, very reliable kernel tree.

I can run all my Linux and I can use UnixWare programs natively within FreeBSD as well. The ports are awesome and put the icing on the cake.

Oh, and I like the "unix" feel of FreeBSD a lot more than Linux's "copy-cat unix" feel.

Linux will rise and destroy M$. Two weeks later FreeBSD will then take Linux over.
That sums it up right there, bull$hit...

Atleast Ports is a reason, ill even take the unified bit.

Actually the use of a dollar sign does not imply that the company itself makes money. But that the company makes too much money in a bad way. i.e. $CO, micro$oft, McDonald$
