New Feature – Avatars

by Kyle

If you do not have a avatar attached to your account at WordPress, or a Gravatar attached to your email, you would usually have the “Mystery Man” beside your comment (see below)

Mystery Man is gone! From now on, if you leave a comment on my blog and you do not have an account/sign in, a avatar will be generated and assigned to your email/IP address. So each time you leave a comment, you will have a custom-generated avatar next to it.
At the moment, Kyle’s Blog will be using math-based images for your avatars, called Identicons. Here is an example of one:

The cool thing is, each one is unique. If we get bored of them, we can move onto custom-generated monsters :p
