    Mine was created by another forum member at my request.

    It's simple really, I am Mylo and many years ago I was exported from Scotland, also I am rather fond of the odd beer or 12 :laugh:

    Firstly, have a search on Google images for an image of a jackel. Then go to here, to resize the image to avatar size. You will need to cut and paste the url of the image into the imageshack box. Once you have uploaded image and hosted it then imageshack will give you links - for that image - which you can then cut and paste into the box when creating an avatar on the forums. Hope this helps.

    I just wanted a sort of leftfield cartoon character. I liked the Hair Bear Bunch, but couldn't find a picture which came out well. I also think someone else has used one of the bears from it. Anyway, saw Mr. Magoo & new he was the one:blush: (no, not THE one) ;) .

    T.

    Ps. I don't look like Mr. Magoo. Honest :rolleyes:
