About my .sigs...

This page was constructed due to an email from someone confused by my .sig.

My current .sig:

<erno> hm. I've lost a machine.. literally _lost_. it responds to
ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my
apartment it is.
I'm not there yet... but it's not for lack of trying...

Old .sigs: I've long since gotten far too lazy to update this page with any regularity, so instead I've started just adding the latest .sig to the bottom of a file, separated by the ".sig separator ("-- ", dash-dash-space, on a line of its own). Clicky. Yay me.

(Note: These .sigs below are really old- most from second year university. I've since upgraded my main workstation about four times; switched systems around too many times to remember, had Windows or Netscape bork on me and lose settings, sigs, files, bookmarks, and I've-long-since- forgotten what all else.)

The last thing you create today is the chair you sit on tomorrow.
In the second line, "Member of PAL Restoration Team" refers to my involvment with Carleton's Student Engineering Society's Linux server EngSoc. There is a public lab for EngSoc users in the lobby of Minto Building, and at one point only about two of the 12 or so computers there were working due to various problems. A group of volunteers took a weekend to fix it.

The quote is a late-night random thought that almost made sense.

"Sig error, strike self to continue..." *bonk*
The quote is from an email I sent regarding an error in my .sig...

"Bob was big. Bob was strong. Bob was... well, blue."

The last line is a quote from the computer-animated show Reboot, episode 3.1.1.

     I'm going to have to stop having opinions.
   Everyone keeps contradicting them with facts.
Someone actually said something very close to this in a newsgroup flamefe^H^H^H^H.. er, debate at one point. I've forgotten who and what the debate. If you think it needs attribution, you're right. Only carleton.general posters need mail me with who said it.

    This .sig on vacation until further notice.
I think this was from summer holidays. I've forgotten.

       I'm *always* behind on my goofing off.
Another possible holiday-type .sig.

     "Oh, sure I can think.  It's just that my
           user interface is scrambled."
The explanation for most of my problems- IMNSHO ofco.

     Walk softly and carry a copy of DOS 6.22.
Gee, d'ya think I'm a geek?

Nahh.. I'd have to change that to "a copy of Linux".

     Good Afternoon!  I'm insane this morning!
This could just as easily apply to Carleton's favourite math prof -Professor Mingarelli. The Coffee Prof. (On a side note, due to a thick skull in the region of calculus, I have once again failed calculus first term. I'm retaking it second term. I managed an A on last year's rerun, let's see if I can do that again.)

             My brain is broken.
No, I haven't fixed it yet.

But I'm gonna- just as soon as I finish procrastinating...

 When you turn up the volume, it gets louder for a
while. But after that, it just starts to hurt more.
Oddly enough, this provoked (or was provoked by? I forget- again.) a short newsgroup debate on rock concerts, parties, bars, and the music/sound levels found at most such events.

Bumper Sticker: "Very funny, Scotty.  Now beam down my clothes!"
Yes, I have watched the original Star Trek- afternoons after (high) school in Deep River. Yay.

And yes, I think this is incredibly funny.


My .sig went through about three changes in several weeks (fast, for me) related to my finding my web page on Engsoc. Apparently, I was lame enough to babble it into my .sig and forget to mail people or post stuff to newsgroups...

My first (recorded) .sig. Not bad, expresses what existed of me at that point. Small computer, WinBlows 95, Packard Bell OEM badware. It was cheap, but...

I've lost the default .sig that came with my Engsoc account tho.... Rats. It probably looked something like this:
