Sigs can only be 80x60? What? I mean, I can totally understand the small height limit, but... 60 pixels wide?

People used to put up really big stuff.....and then someone would quote it........then again.... etc. It would bogg everything down and take up lots and lots of server space........ :(

This thread made me very angry... I would like to remind the writer that in some countries '60 pixels' is a lot.

I would suggest that you start to appreciate what you have and show a little empathy to those less fortunate.

How about this. I am at the bar and this guy says to me, My friend here is 70.

I say, So is Bob Dylan.

He says, So what?

I say, Well he is the most important cultural figure of the 20th century.

He says, um. something like "bullshit".

I say, you don't know what you're talking about.

He hauls off and punches me right in the chest.

Thanks Bob.

Signature entry and rules are still up, regardless of the fact that they no longer function. I did not know that way back when.

I always thought it was a good idea to keep signatures active, and give the mods the ability to edit/delete if one is unacceptable. I use to have my Dylan imitation videos in my sig and people would watch them. When sigs went away, so did all the youtube views. :(

This is sort of an odd question, but I hope someone who knows more about computers can help me: I can't get to the search box on my computer. You know that strip at the bottom of the screen where the icons are? Well, on this computer that strip is kind of transparent...so I can see the search area, but the screen won't go down low enough for me to enter anything in there.

This is bad news !

Try clicking Search on the top right side of your screen...right after FAQ...that should work. :)
