    Thanks ZYB !

    I wasn't sure what his name was ... but was wondering if you would recognise him :D

    For everyone who hasn't been there and doesn't recognise it ... the photo at the top of the page was taken at Monarto Zoo (Dec 2003).

    64 k is HUGE. I administer other forums that have the same limit, and there's great avatars there. Clearly you've never had to reduce images for use on web sites!!!

    Zoo_Boy, I lied, sorry :( The Profile Pic I mentioned sits on your profile page. It doesn't look like avatars (the little pics under your name in posts) have been enabled in the forum. Maybe if you ask Sim nicely.....;)

    awwww! thats it zooprofessional!

    forgive me for not being a tight-arse who buys crappy inferior, virus-ridden, garbage, instead of someone who's happy to pay that little bit extra to not only buy a far superior, user friendly and largely problem-free machine, but also to support the guys who actually do all the innovation in the computer world!

    hows netscape navigator going? ;)

    Oops - I didn't realise that Avatars weren't enabled. I've turned that on, so you should be able to go into your profile now and upload your own avatar, up to 80x80 pixels in size.

    hay hay hay simmy lol

    has anyone noticed that is the news section the ABC NewsRadio - Nature section has never changed, till on birmese python from last year- maybe take this one off sim?

    the site is great glad the pic gallery is moving in leaps and bounds, and loving the trip down mem lane of everyones old pics when ever i log on to, and moving the recent post pics to the top is so much better

    had another idea sim, what about if the lion header pic, changed, as in diff zoo pics phased in and out, spec scences like this lion one, its very kool

    anyway all in one, this site is going really well!!!!!!!!!
