Hi guys. I kinda feel like communing today. You know the "Whats in a name" thread, where everyone explained their names. Well I liked that thread, until it lost its spontainity. So I was thinking maybe we could go through signatures this time.
Take me for instance. "We are so narrowly specialized at doing only everything". A friend of a friend of mine once said that his dead father was specialized in general medicine. Thats seemed conflictuous to me at the time. How do you specialize in general things. I mean the process of specialisation only gets narrower, and yet the end is something general, wide spread.
Well he explained it to me, and then I realized that it applies to us aswell. We are narowly specialized, cause if everyone was lucky enough to earn with LW, wouldve worked with it solely which would undoubtadly come to expert specialization in 3D. And the content that may be involved could be anything in general. So we are specialized in doing everything. Pretty straightforward, and I think it also applies philosphically to all humans, but thats another issue.
Now to keep matters short, Ive seen some signatures that are interesting, but may need some explanation. SO do come forward, showyourselves and lets have some fun.

Hehe,
Well, the first part of my sig is pretty straight forward, a link to the wildlife centre I'm a volunteer and trustee of.

The other part, well, I don't get much time at all to devote to my hobbies so that accounts for the "..Slooooowly" bit of it.
The other part is, I have been pottering about in 3D for a while now and never feel I am learning anything quick enough and the boundaries keep moving.
So it's kind of a statement of how I feel, but with an injection of humor as I don't take it too seriously as I know deep-down, I've learned a lot since I started.
Just got a heck of a lot more I need / want to learn. :)

Well, except for the blatant advertising... a line out of a song from james (http://www.jamestheband.com/music/) (actually, a part of the backing vocals).

Cheers,

Mine's a verse from a poem by Walter D. Wintle called "Thinking". An inspiring poem I read in high school and remember to this day for it's motivating words.

Then there's a link for my site which I desperately need to rework. Too much old stuff on it and needs a new splash page too, cuz the one I got now sucks.

Well, mine is simply a link to our new site. It also replaces my old sig: "Some people are only alive, because its illegal to kill them".

My new favorite one (as my sig at our forums) is: "When life hands you lemons; find the nearest lemon tree and burn it to the ground".:D

Just to be clear. Unless you mean it as a joke too. You dont have a signature Jim_C. And neither do you Meshpig. Its not the picture on your avatars that are signatures. Its some phrase, a word or something that writtes right below any reply you make. Its right below the line.
Appart from that, its all going too well. You wont hear me saying this again, now I know how THREEL must've felt, but its only this time: Keep em coming.

Well, it's kind of posthumourous. Ie, the joke is that it's not funny. :)

Mine's automated self-aggrandizement. I occasionally experience low self-esteem, so seeing constant reminders that I don't quite suck as badly as I think I do is useful ;)

Oh, and it helps me not forget my name.

Well, mine is in two parts...

There's the link to my Lightwave Downloads, a selection of objects and scenes and bits, and how nice of this thread to give me the chance for another plug!

"Touched by his noodley appendage" is a reference to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (http://www.venganza.org/)

My knowledge of this came via Bog in the epic "Church" thread.

While some treat it as a complete joke, very silly and/or offensive, I genuinely believe that it's foundations are every bit as sound and rational as any other religion I have heard of so far. Only Pastafarians don't start wars in the name of their God, burn people, smite them, or stuff like that.

It's origins were as a means to provide an alternative view of special creation / intelligent design / young earth, as in this letter to the Kansas school board. (http://www.venganza.org/about/open-letter/)

The other signature is hilarious. Which reminds me. Wheres the one that had the "Syntax error, bad command or file name. OH NO, ANYTHING BUT THAT ONE" or something like that. Those two look like are at the top of funniest signatures :)

And do you always change your signatures, or you have set it to somehow automaticaly to do so?

Each is unique. That gets a bit tricky since I've been doing them for about 16 years now.

One brief IMDB quote-search later, it seems I have a DVD to acquire on my way home tonight, 'cause that sounds hilarious. I thought from the title that it would be some kind of saccharine, anencephalic chick-flick (no offense to the gentle ladyfolk of the forum). I was wrong.

I thank you both for edifying me.

Beeing so novative in each porn statement Ive seen so far, I advice you extreeme caution as to not to "accidentally" acuire a DVD of a different nature (know what I mean) appart from what youre looking for! :D

Erm. I don't know what that word means, and neither does my dictionary! Whatchootalkinbout, Willis? :)

Novative (Novetiv) - From latin word nova, which means grand, new things and the like, and tiv is that grammar when you say it in this way. This is a common word for beeing grandly creative, extreemly innvoative, ingeniusly positively additive and the such. And its use is more frequently beeing used in ... why the internet actually, and was last seen in god knows which site, and dam me if I know in which time.

Appart from that grammar area, I think Ive explained it to you just like a dictionary. You see, you dont need a dictionary Bog, especially that one that cant find these kinds of novative words in it. Just throw that away and come here more often. Questions?? :)

''JUST WHERE DO YOU THINK YOUR GOING''

*And Bog finds himself trapped in a dongeon, which in order to escape must find the:
1) The rare red wall slamandar, that even because its name might convince people that it lives in house walls, it actually lives in mountains, and the name wall was given after beatrice Wall that found it

2) Liquid of minus infinity youth, that makes peoples lives last not infinitevly like the symbol, but breaking that boundrary and going minus infinitively

3) Rosary of Jumbo - (Fill me up on this one)*

And how will Bog find them while he is trapped in the Dungeon, tune in the next episode of - THE ONES THAT ARE TRAPPED*

Anyone care to join in, just do so and lets get this story rockin :thumbsup:
