I have noticed, after a long absence here, that there seems to be a strange rendering
of user avatar images within any given thread.
For example, if I post to a thread, my own avatar is larger than actual.
The same goes for other contributors to the thread, but it's not consistent.
PhotosGuy may have his ancient flash enlarged on a post to a thread,
while later on, his flash may be reduced quite a bit, making him appear
to be less illuminating.
Would this be a situation of varying browser renderings, or could it be how AMASS
is delivering it?

Windows 7 Pro x64
Opera 12.12 v.1707 x64

Also using Chrome, and seeing the same effect.

Of course I'm all right! Why? What have you heard?!?

The avatar sizing is based upon the length of the post to which the avatar is associated...in a short post the avatar is different than in a much longer post. Same happens to associated information such as post location. Look at my next two (posts 2, 4) as examples

long reply, larger avatar...

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Makes sense now. Thanks for clearing that up.
