There used to be some cool websites that had tons of them available for use....I searched for them a while back and it seems they are gone now. If you search, I'm sure there are some websites that still have large smiley archives.

They live in the woods and only come out on moonlit nights. What you do is get a burlap bag and go into a clearing in the woods and wait. Me and some of the other FOO rats will act as "beaters" and drive them to you. When you see one you like, grab it and put it in your bag. Now go in the woods and wait, and remember, be very very quiet.

One word of caution. There are tons of sites that promise tons of smilies. I'm sure you've seen the advertisement. They have you "download" and "install". Please remember that 99.9% of these people make no money by you downloading it and usually make their money because they are installing some form of "spyware" or "bloatware" or "adware" . So please be cautious whenever you download something that is not an actual image file or a collection of image files.

+1 VERY TRUE. Do not fall for these scams...only use ones from a website you can just link to for free without downloading ANYTHING.

Snowy, here's a couple of smilie sites:
http://www.valleybikes.com/
http://www.sportbikes.net/archives/f...do=showsmilies
http://forum.rscnet.org/misc.php?do=showsmilies

Right click the images/copy location/paste into your post, wrapwith image tags and publish

Image tags look like this:

By the way, Snowy, those links I gave you are no download required lost sites. One of these days, I may even get around to setting up a smilie site myself, I only have a list of 15,000 or so .gifs, animated or otherwise!

Yes, you do have to download and install smiley central, but it takes like 30 seconds. Then all you gotta do is copy and paste the html, and imo these are the coolest smileys around.

Yeah...finally decided to crawl out from that rock I'd been hiding under! Just been amazingly busy with life. Had to prioritize my life. NOW that they are truly straight...I am back. Hehe.

I'm teaching a lot more lately which is good. Piked up two new classes at the Y and I"m still teaching at 24. Thought about getting certified to teach Yoga but I can't seem to slow my brain down long enough. Although it would be nice to teach a class that wasn't so cardio intensive.

Still riding. Focusing on the triathlon mostly though. Sprints for now. Still really struggle with the run. Dang it all! Would help if I trained for it!! Did Hotter N Hell Hundred again this year...that was awesome. Record heat. Right on right on. AND my big accomplishment this year was the Aqua Bike event about a month ago. Essentially it was two thirds of the Prairie Man Half Iron Man. 1.2 mile swim 56 mile bike. Hardest thing physically I've ever done. First time ever I've ridden 56 miles at a race pace without stopping. Well...had to stop once at mile 51. I had my head hung over the Joe Pool Lake bridge puking my guts out. Tip...don't wash down GU with warm powerade. Not on an empty stomach!! Anyway. I missed ya'll...had to come back.
