    Hi GeekyBoy... welcome to Cyburbia!

    It's funny that you chose that avatar because another dude from Toronto had that one for awhile too. I visited your forum... it looks pretty cool. Unfortunately, I don't know too much Toronto though (depsite it being the center of the universe )...

    Hope to see you around the boards!

    It was Tranplanner (if I'm not mistaken).

    Thanks guys/gals

    Anyways - the avatar is "beeko" - doubly appropriate since I had a science background!

    Muppets

    I thought it was Beaker, the assistant to Doctor Bunsen Honeydew, the muppet scientist. Does Beaker have a different name north of the border?

    Joe Illif is right, it's "beaker" named for his body shape. Good thing there isnt a muppet names "phallus"

    Joe:

    I have called Beaker "beeko" since I was a kid - hence my reference...
