And the few who think they can decipher the avatar hash, @YOU. – Arjan Apr 14 '11 at 7:49
@Arjan, also like this? :D – YOU Apr 14 '11 at 7:52
@Arjan: That's not deciphering...that's guessing and hashing. There's a big difference. – Time Traveling Bobby Apr 14 '11 at 8:37
I know, @Bobby. Hence the "who think". But true, a smiley, or linking the "who think" rather than the "decipher" would have been better! – Arjan Apr 14 '11 at 8:56
@Arjan: Ah, I see. Sorry, my irony detector must still be in repair. :( – Time Traveling Bobby Apr 14 '11 at 8:58
