And the last question.... What is my funny .sig all about ?

Oh... My .sig appeared around January-March 1993. One of my pen-pals called me "a real email animal" in his email to me... Next reply I signed off with what you see below .

PS. From one Echoes thread we found out that "email animal" belongs to class "Emailia" or Emmailia rather then to normal class Mumulia /. A 24-hour Internet-addicted mutation , should I say.
