Lambert asked about creating an avatar, like the one you see next to my name in posts and comments.

What I did was go to “My Account”, and then to “Edit”. Scroll down to the “Picture”, then click on “Browse” and search your hard drive for an image you’d like. I used the same one I use for my Gravatar. It had to be vastly pared down to fit, and we have software called Picsizer that you can use to do it. Once I (actually my husband) had shrunk it and saved it, I just uploaded it through the “Browse” button, and voila!
