AFW - Signature Examples


Signature - Examples

rules are like definitions - they should be accompanied by examples.

Here are a few signatures:

Signature Example - Sven Guckes

A minimal signature, ie name and address only:

-- 
Sven Guckes guckes@math.fu-berlin.de

The minimal signature - augmented by a quote:

Four Lines Suffice

Sven Guckes guckes@math.fu-berlin.de
Four
lines
suffice!

The same signature with an additional math symbol:

Root and Motto

Sven   .-----   guckes@math.fu-berlin.de
____  /Guckes
    \/
 "Four lines suffice!"

Same signature again - but with additional addresses (phone, irc, and snail mail):

Root Motto Voice + Snail

Sven   .-----   email:  guckes@math.fu-berlin.de
____  /Guckes   voice:  +4930 8838884 IRC: Sveng
    \/          smail:  Pariser Str. 52 / 10719 Berlin / Germany

Same signature with additional web address (home page):

                www:    http://www.math.fu-berlin.de/~guckes/

And here's a signature which explain the rules:

Signature Example - Johan Forsberg

Another self-explaining signature:

Signature Example - Elizabeth T. Knuth

Again - name+address, home page, ascii picture, and quote:

eknuth@tiny.computing.csbsju.edu     /:'////' `::>/|/     middle of the road

More Signature Examples

As you can see - four lines really suffice for a nice signature. Anything additional you can put onto your home page!

signature collection (~58K). All signatures are separated by "sig dashes". This allows to easily extract signatures by keywords using agrep. :-)
