  8. Was it necessary to upload a 4.34MB file of him at 3888×2592? I don’t know him from Adam, but I wasn’t expecting a wallpaper download when I saw this in RSS/online… #JustSaying

  10. Yikes,

    Sorry about that giant image, Seriocomic.

    I’ve replaced it with one of a less lifelike size.

    Cheers,
