I believe having an actual signature present serves a better purpose if you are looking to advertise the Product, not to mention the fact it allows Users to verify your signature should they be so inclined. As for "useless bytes", they are not of course and add but a neglible amount of bytes to one's posting. - -- Nick -=N.J. Andriash | Courtenay, B.C.
