Hi Billy
I read all the questions and answers every day. I don't understand most of the tech stuff, but I'm learning heaps from all the regular people who answer the queries (love your senses of humour!!)
Anyway, would you PLEEEAASSEE put me out of my misery, I've been trying to work out what these mean by your name *<8--{)
(maybe it's a secret code??)

Jan, it's no secret code, if you tilt your head over to your left you will see that the characters form a little 'picture'.

There's his eyebrows : <

then his glasses: 8

nose: --

moustache: {

and smile: ).

Pretty clever isn't it!

Ah, Jan.

Now I am revealed!! I knew somebody would ask one day!

8-{) is a smiling man with a moustache & glasses.

And *< , well that's just my seasonal Santa hat.

Jan, good question! I'm sure you have seen the typical email smiley, :) (tilt your head to the left and you'll see the eyes and smile).

Well the 8-{) is Billy T.

8 = big eyes
- = nose
{ = moustache
) = big smile

put them all together, and you get Billy T, or a happy moustached man 8-{)

Take care, and keep up the learning!

None of you got the Santa hat!

Why am I faintly disappointed?

Thank you everyone for your replies. I had tried tilting my head to the right, (and even upside down) so now I know, tilt to the left, hold your tongue in the right place and bingo! a little face! I love it!!
Haven't figured Kame Krazee's yet though. Maybe a New Year
drink will do the trick!!
Billy. wear your Santa had ALL
year, we definately need more
humour in our lives. be happy and have a great New Year.

Sorry Jan,

It's spose to be a Christmas Tree but the forum cut out the spaces and chopped it into pieces.
