A momentous... er... moment. Changing your avatar.

For many of us, changing our Avatar is like having plastic surgery; there was usually nothing wrong with what you had before and nobody can work out why you went through with it.

There are a couple of reasons. Firstly, this is actually very likely to be a temporary change while I come up with a brand spanking new permanent one (probably a doctored photo of myself, in fact) and secondly because it is the cover for my first album - to be released on 25/02/13. Go to to hear some clips if you haven't already stopped reading in disgust.

Of course, there's hardly any point trying to advertise a musical project on BGG - it's waaay off topic, but this may serve to explain the presence of a very specific zero where previously you saw the floppy haired superhero I used to be.

Which zero is it? Well, since anyone who isn't from the UK may not recognise it immediately, a clue is that it is only half of the actual number involved (but which is an oddly protected trademark, I believe) and it is from a particular place.

I doubt anyone is particularly heartbroken by the loss of the old one, but if you are, please let me know, and if enough people do, I'll restore it.
