   \___/!___/  How do I make a sig?                                  /_\_


   There are no rules for making sigs.  Most sigs contain items like:

   o  Name.
   o  Nickname.
   o  Email addresss.
   o  asco-o art pics.
   o  Borders.
   o  Work and school names.
   o  Disclaimer.
   o  Mail addresses.
   o  Phone, fax, and pager numbers, PINs.
   o  Quotes and jokes from the poster and other people.
   o  Info about the poster's .plan, PGP key, FTP site, WWW home page.


   You might simply 'Figletize' your name, pop in your addy and a pic, and
   presto, instant sig:


                                                         -@asco-o.com
               'Go-o asco-o Go-o'                        -@asco-o.net
                                                         -@asco-o.org

   Notice how busy a sig can get.  Think carefully about what is really
   important, how much of it you really want to include, and how you want
   it laid out.  The little sig is 5 lines and 367 characters.
   The ego-billboard is 19 lines and 625 characters.  Over three times the
   size.

   If you're going to have your sig automatically included in your posts
   and email, remember that some systems only allow up to 4 lines in the
   sig.  For info-o on how to have your sig automatically included, see
   (info-o) 70.

   If you want to use a larger sig on systems that only allow 4 lines, you
   will have to insert it manually.  On most Unix based systems:

   o  Using pico editor, press control-r when you want to insert the sig,
      and then type the name (or full pathname) of the file to be
      inserted.

   o  Using vi, ex, ed, the command is ":r <filename>"

   o  Using emacs, it is control-x control-r <filename>


   Speaking of sig length, there is a rule of thumb of 4 to 6 lines.  Try
   to keep sigs around this length for posts, reserving the long ones for
   email, and post to the asco-o art groups, where it's expected.
