    Please don't. They are really annoying. A certain very frequent (and productive) poster here just made his avatar animated, and it's supremely distracting. Stay with your cool Tesla pics! My two cents.

    I have to agree. It is very distracting when you're trying to read. I hope this is a fad that goes away, or I'll have to stick to printed media. :frown:

    Hehe! Watch your laptop/tablet batteries run down that much faster! TEG's been doing this to us all for years :)

    At least TEG's fan puts out a cooling breeze!


    (is there and instructional link on how to do this?)

    I think a velociraptor says 'rahr'. But I may be misinformed.

    West coast is 'rahr'. And +1 on your off-topic apology :).

    (But we ARE in the off-topic section of the forum. Is it really inappropriate to be off-topic in the off-topic forum?)

    You guys can't even stay on topic after I had moved this previously off topic subject to its own thread.

    Regarding animated avatars, I haven't been encouraging them since some members have complained about them in the past (see top of thread). They don't bother me, but I can see how they can be distracting/annoying.

    It only bothers me when TEG's fan stops spinning.

    It bothers me whenever I hear that a Roadster PEM fan stops spinning.
    At least Tesla seems to have an upgrade for that old problem now.
