    Here's my donation to the obscureness.

    I'll try something user friendly on you guys.
    Makes me think of the eyeball image on the computer screens in various pictures from the "Paranoia" RPG.

Is your significant other named Victoria? Do you just like picking out totally obscure graphics that have nothing to do with you and use them as avatars? Inquiring minds want to know!
    No... I just wanted an obscure avatar for people to guess at.

    Ken--I mean Sunny--G, does it have something to do with computers?

    Does it also have anything to do with comics?

    And sorry, I couldn't resist the comparison.

    That was the first time anyone's done that comparison. Took me a while to get it.

    Nope, nothing to do with comics.

    A billion dollar question:
    Should I retire this one?

    It's very soft software.

    Think back... Clashing attire, MTV, Pacman.

    Basically all that with big plastic glasses, and don't forget those blazing bushy beards.

    Yup, 1980's.

    Basically when the Altair 8800 reigned.
    So I ask you... Where do you want to go today?

    That was an obvious last hint sunny .....

    I looked at that logo and knew it was a programming language or OS and just had to wrack my brains for a few mins. I believe its one of the O's out of the microsoft logo on the second generation MS logo that originated sometime in the 70's. The logo that replaced the original MS logo in black and white split over two lines and the logo before the famous MS logo in the 90's ....

    At least thats what i think it is? Isnt it? ......

    You, sir, are correct. [link]

    I need to work on my hints. It was fun, though.
    Who's next?

    The Canfusion!
    Search for "Canfusion" with computers. You'll get this: [MicroSpeak]
    (with reference to "Blippet", the name of the 'O' symbol).

    A billion dollar question: Should I retire this one?
    Who in the computer industry has a billion dollars and just retired?
    Bill Gates.

    It's very soft software.

    The softest software of all: Microsoft.

    Basically all that with big plastic glasses, and don't forget those blazing bushy beards.
    The programming language BASIC, invented by Bill Gates (who wore big plastic glasses) and Paul Allen (with a bushy beard) who owns the Blazers.

    Basically when the Altair 8800 reigned.
    The computer they developed on, and used to write BASIC.
    (I know, this was a poor hint).
