Betcha haven't seen one of these in a while!
In the "olden" days, TV stations would often show the above test pattern after sign off. Currently, if a test pattern is shown, all I've seen is a collection of colored bars. But today, I'm not going to mention TV again and bring up rather different type of "sign off".

I enjoy keeping up with several forums on the Internet. Those of you that read on line forums have likely noticed that some people have a signature that is attached to the end of their posts, and sometimes the message is pretty good. With so many forums out there, picking one with cool sigs isn't hard to do, and I thought today that I'd pass along some of the better signatures I've come across on an Internet web site I frequent about woodworking... http://www.forums.woodnet.net/ubbthreads...

Please add any that you've come across and enjoy!
