A bit large, yes. We here at Scot's aren't really mean and nasty about forcing folks to follow the sig guidelines, but... that is a bit large. It's pretty spiffy, though. smile.gif

Signature Limitations (Text and Images)

11. Please keep the length of Text Only signatures within the following parameter:

    A maximum of five single-spaced lines of text. (A line = the width of the SIG text input box.)

If you incorporate an image into your signature in conjunction with text, please do so within the following parameters:

    Images must comply with Rule #12.
    A maximum of three single-spaced lines of text. (A line = the width of the SIG text input box.)

Also, please do not post your system specifications in your signature. There is a designated area in your account profile for that information. (See "A Note About Privacy" below.).



Tip: If you want a long quote in your signature, you may want to use the "size" tags to make it size "1" so that you can fit more text on each of the five lines you're allowed.

As to the link itself. I think the Arch main page is a bit stuffy. I recon my link is more useful to someone who is ready to try out Arch.You guys are looking at things from a different perspective from folk like me. With a long history GNU/Linux usage and coding and command line skills and a more serious attitude to penguinism your view has to be different to mine. I'm just a pretty standard normal pc user with just an vague inkling of all the complexities of the os, I just want to install and tweak the os to suit me.  Just my opinion of course but I'll stick with it.

That is not really the clearest explanation of my thinking but it is the best I can offer at the moment as I don't have time to write a thesis.

Ah ha well me original, and in my humble opinion, had more of a world encompassing appeal, had the line "We did and we are really happy" with this .gif underneath it.



Apparently for some strange reason it was deemed to be too toooooo something or other.  hysterical.gif  Both here and on another forum I haunt.  whistling.gif

Read more about that: White Castle marks 90th anniversary with one-day return to Wichita from the article May 12, 2011:
QUOTE
Wichita's prodigal fast food chain is coming back home, but only for a day. White Castle executives and family members of the chain's founders are making a pilgrimage May 19 to Wichita, where he first White Castle was founded 90 years ago.

There will be a birthday celebration that afternoon offering Wichitans the chance to once again buy White Castle burgers.

"Home is where the heart is," said White Castle System Inc. vice president Jamie Richardson. "Knowing that we started in Wichita and that it is where it all began, we thought would be a great chance to bring some of the family members together."

From 4 to 6 p.m., Wichitans can buy the burgers the price of two for 90 cents. Grills will be set up in the Dillons grocery store parking lot at 7707 E. Central, near Rock Road.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Kansas Food Bank.

We drove to Florida in 1956 and McDonald's hamburgers were advertised on the radio as 9. My Mom thought "what kind of a hamburger do you get for 9?". Of course we had to stop at at least one of the white tiled buildings with the neon arches to see. They were not bad. It took several more years before we got our first McDonald's in my hometown in PA.
