No, I didn't get a haircut, nor did I dye my hair blue (yet). I just partly un-transparentified my X-Face-based hackergotchi for Planet Debian and added that oh-so-classy semi-translucent drop shadow.
And I also harmonised the colour scheme of my blog with the one on my pro site (yes, I'm a part-time free software freelance). Again, using a colour theme inspired from Manoj's script and blog article.
I'm an absolute fashion victim. Must... not... put... "hacker emblem"... somewhere.
