Either this is
A.) A joke
B.) Completely not what I am talking about
Changing 1337 to l33t may help you all understand...

Umm, nope...,
that didn't help Ronnie.
If you write it in so I can understand it I might know if I'm it or not though.

Basically 1337, translated to english, is leet, as in elite, as in hacker-elite. It is a slang language that has gained popularity from use over the internet, mostly among gamers (the most popular example would most likely be "pwn" pwn is a synonmy for own, and it is used mostly in a gaming environment, aka, I PWNED YOU). I was just wondering if it had reached any "ranchers" yet.
Simple "hard-core" 1337 translation of the sentence "The Man"
7|-|3 /\/\/-\|\|
There are even 1337 translators online.
Less "hard-core" 1337 is more popular though.
Examples:
Pwn
Wtf
Pwnz0rz
("z0rz" or "zorz" can be added to the end of almost any word to make it "1337")

Check out my awesome web site. All employees had to do web sites. It had to have at minimum their name and a picture, as you can see I went a bit over board, I think this is the best web site ever.
It also furthers my belief that people who sit around programming java and perl all day and sysadmining should not be forced to do web sites.

I'm not 1337, I'm mostly French, German, and Portugese (that means I surrender quickly, I have no sense of humor, and I tan easily j/k). I think I have a distant cousin on my mother's side who is 1/4 1337 though.

Is there a dress code for being a father? Or do your kids just give you ties as gifts that you are forced to wear?

Ronnie,
It seems like your pic is fuzzy, maybe you compressed it too much!
