I'll get my Avatar sorted soon-ish (the phot I prefer to use is at home and I'm not).

As for my signature - I don't speak/read Latin but everyone who I've asked who does - says I understand this sentance...

...sums up my view of Discworld :)

Hi Sandra! :D

Thank you for the links Tony. I'll figure out which one to try and let you know how it goes. I want the feature that allows you to change a picture to greyscale, then add back in touches of color.

Veni Vini Volupti - err... "I came, I drank wine, I got bigger boobs"? :oops:

Sorry! Just guessing (I don't know any Latin)

OK fuller explaination:

Veni Vini Venici - Caesar - I came I saw I conquered

Sine Lucre nil Volupti - motto of Seamstresses Guild

Added together: I came I saw I (did something)

Also everyone I ask to translate the word 'Volupti' goes red and blushes - to my immense amusement.

Sine Lucre nil Volupti - No ( :?: ) without pay?

I wonder what it could mean? :wink:

As I said I don't do Latin - you are obviously right - I was a bit tired when writing that.

Have looked it up - it means, "I came, I pruned a vine, I did something pleasant".

(That last bit may be a euphemism)

I change my Avatar, from time to time. The current one is because I was reading The Last Hero. I like the Swamp Dragons. :D
Signature is Tiffany's necklace or rather the actual chalk horse from Google Earth, that I believe it was modelled on.. :)
Best wishes,
Tiff

Indeed, it's the white horse at Uffington in Oxfordshire. :)
