So.. I logged in today and my avatar is gone (or replaced?) and now I have some "troll spray" picture. I'm many much confused. Any explanation why this happened lol?

You seem to have linked your avatar from a different forum. Someone over there must have replaced that image file.

You could host your avatar picture yourself or using services like tinypic or imageshack to avoid that.
Does scaling an image blur it?

On the topic of random generators, if you haven't heard of it already, I recently found this neat tool to play around with. You can think of it as an sfxr for music--especially ambience. Other than that, it usually only understands solos that sound like someone bashing a keyboard, but when you think about it, it's certainly an impressive step in the right direction (for cheesy elevator music).

It also sounds alright if you're up to clicking buttons for a while, so frankly that wasn't the best example for a standard, untouched result, given you don't get lucky.

But it's probably nowhere near as useful as the art prompt generator Tourist posted up there--many thanks for that by the way--except, somehow, I suppose, for the more musically inclined here, or as a temporary antidote for boredom.

man, I'd need the extra cash. I must consider this.

I would definitely buy a print of polish girl, but I guess that isn't pixel art.
It would be better than the printout I already have of it at least.

Speaking of which... I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with Woot but they also have a sub-retailer called shirt.woot that sells various prints. Most of the prints they sell come from submissions into weekly contests. I'm not sure what the specifics of these contests are, but they usually have different themes and possibly limitations, and I think the winner gets a chunk of the sales or something. Anyways, I always check out the shirts every night and I guess one week they had a pixel/retro-themed contest... and this was second place:

You realise that it basically relies on being displayed on a monitor (additive medium) and would look a lot different when printed?
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I've seen it often enough for a printed image to just be something to spark my memory of how it looks on a monitor, plus even though the focus of the image was the color palette I think the image stands alone well enough.
