Type your name underneath is like a normal person? Anyone I know who worked anywhere they had to sign for many things (including me) has a signature that's basically, at most, 2 legible letters and a line.


I don't mean signing for things, I mean signing things like letters to directors, etc.

That's what he means. You should have a signature block that has your name, title and position in print along with your signature.

The more illegible your signature, the harder it is to forge, and thus the more valuable it is.

Clearly. It's drastically harder to forge a legible "A" than it is to forge a unique squiggle. Wait, what's that? It isn't? Also, it's 2013. No one gives a fuck about signatures. As a credential, they're essentially useless. The only reason they are still used it tradition.

I wish banks and lawyers would fuck off with these then. Getting tired of having to sign bank documents and getting them notarized by lawyers.

I've got an ink stamper of my sig, but I don't ever use it anymore. My ink pad seems to always be dried up.

Koa's printing machine could probably make a signature stamp.

Yup, Ink or paper embossing! http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:140343 They even already have an easy to customize one, basically you make a 100 x 100 pixel image (black and white for best results) upload it to the customizer, and hit the Make button. Send it to the printer, and 42 minutes later, customize-able stamp thingy!. There's an ink stamp in there that does the same thing too.

You can see how this part is the important bit, and not you actually signing something, right?

Well, to be fair. We should differentiate requiring signatures from whether or not the actual signature actually means anything. Being in the Army, most of my signatures are digital, but I have had my signatures on receipts cross checked with either my credit card or an original signature. Whether or not that was necessary is another topic.

They're not mutually exclusive. A lawyer won't notarize without you signing in front of them.

Notaries don't have to be lawyers.

The whole notion of the notary public though is kind of interesting. I wonder how that service could be adapted to the Internets?

No, I just tire of banal attempts at "correcting" things that aren't errors. I assume a certain level of reading comprehension from adults, but clearly I've misjudged that terribly. One wonders if this is limited to forum posts for you. When you shop for groceries, do you stare at a sign reading "Eggs, $1.99 per dozen" and suddenly yell "THEY MEAN CHICKEN EGGS! NOT ONLY CHICKENS HAVE EGGS!"

I had bagel too. Smiley: grin Mine was an 8-grain (from the best bagel place in the state), toasted and sandwiched up with a hard fried egg and some rhubarb-balsamic jam stuff I made last night.

I was really good. I want another one.

I have to disagree - Bagel Mainea in Augusta - the best. I think I went to Bagel Central once - not sure if that was the name. It was bagels/bakery and a nice deli counter with pretty much a full bf and lunch menu. It had long bench tables for seating and was downtown Bangor - maybe 4 or 5 blocks off the river???

Amazingly, because if it's more than 15 minutes from 95 or 295 I consider it in the state of Aroostook, not Maine, I've been to both. I still prefer BC. Most of Nexa's family lives in the Augusta area, so I get to laugh at the ludicrous quaintness of the "Capital" a few times a year.
