Fellow Diplomacy Lovers!

While this task may be have been child's play for this broad-base of tech-savvy players, I struggled with uploading an avatar picture until yesterday. What can I say? I'm a low-tech professor who still reads books...real paper bound ones :? .

As you know, file size is limited and the image I wanted to use was 4x too large to upload. Wanted to share my solution, in case others face the same challenge. You can use a compress image website to reduce the file size down to under the threshold (90x90 pixels, 24 KiB). I used this one, but there were many others that I'm sure would have worked:

Go on now, Express Yourself ;) .

Resplendent and unfading is wisdom,
and she is readily perceived by those who love her,
and found by those who seek her.
She hastens to make herself known in anticipation of their desire;
Whoever watches for her at dawn shall not be disappointed,
for he shall find her sitting by his gate.

I’d been hoping to achieve that for ages!

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.

AKFD, Woolgie and V! You look so awesome! But V, you scare me now. 8-) .

Here's some bonus audio. I'm too shy to post the official video :oops:

...Express yourself
You've got to make him
Express himself
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Resplendent and unfading is wisdom,
and she is readily perceived by those who love her,
and found by those who seek her.
She hastens to make herself known in anticipation of their desire;
Whoever watches for her at dawn shall not be disappointed,
for he shall find her sitting by his gate.

Wouldn't want people talking. Thanks for your sense of humor! And I changed my avatar already. Now I know how easy it is...
