Not really sure why I was picked for this honor but here it is:

"How does one get the cool curmudgeon person who you chose to be what represents your being! It is something I must get it so that I become the cool looking being to my adult kids.

I am here reading without IT education of any sort. It has helped greatly as I was ready-better stated, needed to order replacement for laptop used in sm. business and was lost.
Along the way, happily, I have the opportunity to pick up some fun things along the way (hopefully) which cuts the stress. Any US available suggestions will be greatly appreciated. My name in this site is based on the name of my shop which is heavily laden with art glass and pottery, vintage as well as new with great emphasis on great artistry of the human person to accomplish beautiful items. I have heavy leaning on American artists but always open to talented people from special niches throughout the world. If you are aware of any suggestions, I am open to more than your little person! Source please-may look basic to you but cool for me please. Thanks and your secret is safe with me in my "private" mode question."

Is he/she/it asking for my avatar? or the power to be me? inquiring minds want to know and my secret being safe? I was unaware that I had any secrets, being mostly an open book on these TR pages.
Or is he just asking for art for his shop?

Is that anything like a Polymorph?

If it is I really want to see this. :^0

I think he/she wants something more than your avatar

by AV . In reply to One of your fellow TechRe ...

Michael, you are just the lucky one among us. Supposedly, he/she wants a cool looking avatar to impress the adult kids and yours is it for some reason. I don't think he/she wants to be you. Its more like wanting to get to know you better.

I think he/she is advertising that they have an art shop of sorts and would be open to talented people from the US with special artistic niches. Also, he/she wants the source of your cute little avatar. I think he/she means source code, not what site did you get it from.

The secret is that he/she won't say anything to anyone if you give him/her the source code. It doesn't matter if its yours or not, maybe. No worries, your secret is safe with them. :^0

Undoubtedly they want you MJ

It's been nice knowing you. :^0

I hope you enjoy the Brain Transplant without the anesthetic. After all they will not want to damage the body will they.

But actually I think that they are asking for your Avatar. Seems that being different from the Pink Ribbon Brigade isn't helpful in this case. :0

Naturally I would never get a question like that I have a reputation for opening Air Lock Doors on friends and doing worse to others. So I'm defiantly safe unlike Davette who is likely to be asked to partake in this form of Perversion unlike me. [Maniacal Laughter]
