easy enough. Grab a 12v battery, connect it to the power pins, use the headphone out, add in some duct tape and you are all set.

Please, please shorten that sig to the minimum 5 lines or less... you can just have the specs running like mine... thanks. It keeps the forum more organized. And yes, you can. You just have to have some good 4 pin connectors to some batteries...

Your sig needs to consist of 5 lines max, rule No 4 applies, no need to reduce the number of entries, just shuffle them into lines instead of one column, send me a PM when you've done this.

Thanks.

Yes it's me again, on about sigs, both neodude & IHateDells are six-liners, wheras Mike Reiner & Jac 006, although they have a lot going on in their sigs, have strung them out into 3 & 4 lines respectively, so it can be done.
Now, I don't want to do this really, but I'll give you two six-liners until Monday Feb 13th to re-configure you sigs to 5 lines or less, if they are not done then, I'll have a word with David, there's no sense in having rules if we don't stick by them, come ON, it's no brain surgery, it'll take all of 20 seconds or less!

people seem to completely ignore me on this subject, and it's pissing me off.
those two people you asked, for all you know, might be running thier desktops at higher resolutions.

In which case, what may appear as 6 lines to say... someone who runs 1024x768, could look like 5 or 4 to someone who uses 1280x1024.

I highly suggest you take that into consideration, Maurice.

I am not that technical, I hear what you are saying but the sigs I have adjusted so far have worked out on the whole, I think there was only one, I couldn't sqeeze into five lines, but surely leaving out one spec isn't going to ruin it, probably just my view, but do the specs have to be in sigs at all?, members could just bring them up in posts when & where necessary to assist the subject matter in hand.
