    I think what hes trying to say is that what do you do. Do you have to have the cuser on the picture or what?

    No, you simply just press Printscreen ( a little button next to the Page Up key on the right )

    I've done that then what? Where does the picture go? I need to know how to save the picture or keep so I can get it to the avatar.

    ... in order to take screen captures in Windows, you need to have the window you want to copy active then press the right alt+ctrl+print screen simultaneously. Pressing these keys copies the active window to the system clipboard (the same place anything you ctrl+c copy goes). Then, simply paste (ctrl+v) it into any imaging program such as MS Paint and save as a jpeg. Its as simple as that.

    Do note that you cannot use this method to get screen captures from videos -- you need a video editor for that.

    I have never been to King's Dominion but remember the commercials for it when it first debuted in 1975. I was still in Silver Spring, Maryland so I'm sure that's why the ads were aired. Whereas Disney World has Disney characters walking through the park, Kings had (and maybe still has) Hanna Barbera characters (like Yogi Bear and Fred Flintstone) right?

    Wow Ziff, just wanted to say thanks for changing your avatar back. I seriously lost you for a month, or however long you had the blue guy for.

    Back in the 70s-80s,the Hanna Barbera characters did walk around,yes.You can see an early clip containing Kings Dominion in the movie 'Rollercoaster' with George Segal.Those were the days,also,when the major roller coaster back then was the Rebel Yell(also seen in the movie).Nowadays,Paramount characters have taken over the park,due to an obvious take-over by Paramount.

    Thanks! I enjoyed that blue aardvark, and the tic tacs and Niagara Falls were cool too. But the ol' Ziffel avatar is my fave (and goes best with my user name) :)

    And Diana, I have seen "Rollercoaster" several times and I really LOVE that movie. I didn't realize it was filmed at Doswell, though. I thought it was at the real life opening of Magic Mountain (located somewhere in the midwest like Kansas or Nebraska I'm thinking?). But maybe that was just the setting for the movie when actually was in Doswell, Viriginia, eh?
    GREAT rollercoaster scenes and photography in that movie and a smart, tense thriller. 4 stars out of 4 for me.

    What the...I never knew this thread existed. (then again, I joined after this thread died so)

    Looking back, does anyone know if I have ever used a female as an avatar? Because I don't think I have. Huh...

    All I know is I wish the old truth or dare thread worked out a little better, because I would've dared Newsie to go an entire month without changing her av. :p
