Okay..so what grant wants is a cute little picture for himself onthe forum so that when he posts anythng it is identified by a little picture....so the little picture is what he is looking for cause he wants to be symbolised by a little picture. So I guess how it works is that one is re-encarnated in the cyber world via the little picture.

I just wanted to say little picture quite a few times...

I've got an avatar, isn't it cool. My face is a little thicker than that photo and my skin usually isn't that red.
