    Besides, Google is often useless. Permit me to demonstrate:

    http://www.letmegooglethatforyou.com/?q=Case+Car

    You're looking for an automobile built by the Case company. Lotsa luck.
    I never said it was always going to work.

    For that search though I don't think that's a fair repesenation, the Case company doesn't exactly feature top of the line with google, so it's no wonder you get bad results.

    Anyway, I want to change my avi, what should I pick, any recommendations?

    Actually, it's a very fair representation of a lot of the problems with using google: Sometimes you simply CAN'T find what the heck you're looking for, because the words are so common!

    Here's another thing to google: Recorder. How many links have anything to do with music? (Thanks to Wikipedia, you CAN find something on the musical instrument.)

    I don't think the problem is google's fault, the problem is the frequency of the words simply being so high, I can't see a reason why anyone would call their company "Case", sounds like a really bad practice if you want to be found online.

    Spamdexing doesn't help either.

    There was a perfectly good reason: The founder was Jerome Increase Case (1819-1891).

    Been so long since I posted that I've even forgotten what my avatar looks like. My boss at work has started monitoring internet use very strickly. I could probably get away with anything since I wrote the monitoring program for him, but others in my department might be tasked with watching me. Yes, Big Brother is alive and well in my office.

    Ain't that always the way. Yeah, if I forgot what my Avatar looked like, it would be a clear sign I need to spend more time here. *Checks to see what his avatar looks like.*

    That's an oooold closeup of my grandson, so it must be time to change. In honor of the Superbowl just having been played (very vaguely), I think I will change it to a logo from the greatest football team in the world within the next couple of days. Any guess as to who I'm referring to?

    I fully understand your feelings. Now if American Football inspired the same kind of riots that real football did, I might watch more of it.

    Hey, those riots just go to prove how much people care about the game.

    As much as it pains me to say it, if you are talking about the all-time greatest NFL team in terms of NFL championships, it would have to be the Green Bay Packers (12), followed in 2nd place by my beloved Chicago Bears (9).

    I never said they were a bad thing. Heaven knows they're far more entertaining than the sport itself.
