Six years old May 25, 2017

It is six years old and dates back to when I first started translating professionally. It has never really occurred to me to update it.

I don't have a photo May 25, 2017

I prefer to use an avatar. It's supposed to evoke machine translation in a humorous way (2 burritos = 2 small donkeys)...

On other, non-work-related social sites, I use different avatars, for example "neal the sloth" (http://admascots.wikia.com/wiki/Neal_the_Sloth) ...

It is almost the only photo I use on the Net May 25, 2017

I had a couple of attempts at a logo and a terrible photo of a green shirt, possibly with me inside it ... and then I adopted this one.

It must date from around 2004.

And what was with the attractive portait in-between?

An artist friend made an avatar based on a picture of me. I figure this should "age" less than a regular picture would.

It was a fake photo, of course.

No option between 1 and 2 years May 26, 2017

Which would be my choice, like Chris's and Muriel's

Choosing the least worst photo among very few is not only boring, but also a genuine challenge, so it will likely stay here for a while.
