|The .sig Museum|
|Way back when, in the grand old days of UNIX, it became popular to include a file called ".sig", which held your "signature". It would be included with every outgoing email, newsgroup post, etc. At first the .sig contained useful information -- maybe your title, address, etc. But quickly enough .sigs evolved (devolved?) into personal billboards, a bit of electronic grafitti in which you could show off your wit. I've started to collect the more interesting ones I see. No attempt has been made for proper attribution... sorry.|
