    Hmm, I guess no one here likes mine....

    I got lots of votes at the MacNN best sig contest.... Jesus - maybe that means something! LOL

    I remember I did have someone go off on me about having this bullshit signature over there - "I'm so sick of seeing that in your sig line. What the hell could you know that Apple demanded you take it out of your signature?!?! It's ****ing bullshit!"

    I like yours, BTW Sine.

    I used to have this one in emails:

    "In a world without walls and fences, who needs Windows or Gates?"

    I like Anders', MacAgent's and SDW2001's sigs and EmAn's old sig. Don't know which I like the most, though.

    I also like this one: "It might look like I am doing nothing - but at the cellular level, I'm really quite busy." I don't remember whose it was. I stole it and sometimes I use it in my email. Also this one is good too (I also use it in my email): "We are all worms but I do believe I am a glowworm. -- Winston Churchill"

    Yes I have had two "Fran variants"

    And we all know what happened with that <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

    "Its time for Apple to give Fran a PBG4 but untill then, screw them"

    And I haven´t bought an Apple product for over a year (and of course I would have bought both a dual G4 and a TiBook if it hadn´t been for this )
