Describe Your Signature

Wed Aug 20, 2008 3:43 pm

Describe what your signature means and why you selected it. Include pictures as well as much information as you think is needed.

Mine: I selected my signature because of my fondness for Paccar products. Ever since I was little kid, I have always admired the Kenworth. When driven right, they can last for years and years. Here are some pictures:

In conclusion, I am a die hard Paccar product fan.

'Utrinque paratus' = Latin for 'ready for anything'

It's the regimental motto of the British Parachute regiment as well as a few other airbourne forces from around the world.

Service before self is one of the three USAF core values, the others being Integrity First and Excellence in All We Do

I chose it not only because of my connection with the Air Force through Civil Air Patrol, but because it also seemed to sum up what I view my purpose in life: service to others.

My signature?

My signature cannot be changed. I've tried many times over the past week. When I attempt to "edit profile" it randomly:

> tells me I must be logged in to do that [when I already am]
> appears to make the changes but does not save them
> logs me out
> tells me there is no such username/password

I tried to post this in 'site related' but I am denied access there

> "you must be logged in to view site-related"
> I tried to start a thread there about this but it wouldn't let me

So, I guess this is site-related but it does also relate to the thread topic here.
If any staff happen to read this I'd sure like that fixed.

edit: So NOW it fixes itself. Mods. feel free to delete this post.

Mine's pretty simple. Everything you need to know is in the signature. And I've thought about changing it at times but just can't bring myself to do it - a "Never Forget" mentality I suppose.

If I ever did change it, I would probably change it to Dark Helmet's line from Spaceballs - "Evil will always triumph because good is dumb."

I think you should change it to what you're using for your myspace tag line right now, or my response to that tagline.   

So everyone else is clued in:
Me: "My cousin said he'd almost be gay for Michael Phelps."
SkyGirl: "I'd be gay for Michael Phelps"
Me: "You wouldn't have to be gay."

My signature is pretty much to promote my group at msn groups.

Other signatures included:
"DING, you are now free to move about the country/Keystone State" (WN coming to PIT in 2005)
"Stop Mocking Me!" (Stewie Griffin line)
"PIT, you're time is gonna come." (I was/am hopeful that traffic will pick up there again)

I think I had something else there before I changed it to what it is now, but I cannot remember...

I want to change it to something else, but whenever I go to my profile to edit my signature, I get a blank page with "nice try, hacker" written at the top... What am I gonna do about my signature. Also, my employment info will be changing soon because after next week, I will no longer be an intern...

Ok everyone, yeah I know... Put your eyes back in their sockets and your jaws back together now...  Wink

I really don't know why Philly gets the bum rap it constantly gets. I am about to complete my internship with the City of Philadelphia Streets Department, and it's the best job I've ever had! Everything about it was terrific. I gained some excellent experience, and I loved everything about taking the train each day to work and back, being part of the hustle and bustle of one of the biggest cities in the country. Everything is pretty much right at the MSB - or City Hall's doorstep! AWESOME city!  Smile
