Could I ask a computer question??

How do you get the picture in the left to come up under my user name?

You need to click on "User CP" in the blue bar near the top. Then "Edit Avatar"

Then you can upload one from your computer. Just take note on the size limitations mentioned at the bottom. Basically it has to be a real small pic and only certain formats.

I think it says right on that page "Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller). " Just use jpg.

Oh and to the OP. If you have the cash hire a crew to come in and paint the house in a day!

I guess there is no specific format, but you will need to change the format anyway to get it smaller in size(KB).

"GIF" is one of the smallest formats, you can use the "paint" program built in to Windows to change it, its kinda crude so you have to mess around. Otherwise there are some free programs that resize/ect.. you'll havve to search google.
