This is getting weirder. Hurt has no picture, my work has old picture and home has new cartoon picture.

I have deleted my avatar at work. I will do the same at home and attempt to add it back.

That is strange. It shouldn't matter where you make the changes.
One day you will find someone who is obsessed with you.
It will most likely be a Dog, but it is what it is.

Have you emailed Troy? Surely he should know or should be able to figure it out?

There are no placeholder avatars. So, if you've deleted it, then no image will show up anymore. If you change it and you're not seeing the new one, then it's most likely a caching-related issue -- which would also explain why you were seeing an older one at a different location and/or different web browser.

If you see that kind of issue again, just let me know and I'll force a refresh of the cache on my end and then all you'll have to do on your end is reload a page with your avatar on it.

I see an empty square.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.
