Name To Face

Feed it with your name, and this website turns it into a unique avatar — don’t ask me how they do it though. Here’s what turned up when I entered Sharleena’s (real life) name:

sharl's name to face

How about that! I kid you not. Now, as for Gail Zappa

Avatar Redux

Back in May, I encouraged you to grab yourself an avatar and register it with Gravatar so that with every comment you make here, the image of your choice would show up along with it. Some of you did, but not nearly enough. Which is where this handy tool may be of service!

Here’s some Sharl and I prepared earlier:

balint avatarbarry avatar
sharleena avatar
urbangraffito avatar
magic fingers avatar
sofa avatar


In order of appearance:

  • Balint
  • Yours Truly
  • Sharleena
  • Urbangraffito
  • Magic Fingers
  • SOFA

Why not have a go yourself?

Bring Out Yer (Gr)Avatar

Praise be! This weblog is now Gravatar enabled. Now you too can have one of those unique little personal images next to any comment you post here. All you have to do is sign up for an account with Gravatar, upload your image, and associate it with the email address you’d previously entered to comment here. Next thing you know, your avatar will appear next to your comments — retroactively!

So c’mon: bring out yer Gravatar
