I know that feeling :? Or worse when posters humor you.

Two people you never want to be on a forum, "The Invisible Poster", or "The Thread Killer"

Though both do have their advantages :lol:

Sure you can. Why, I know several authors who include personalized viruses with every copy they sell. :D

I read about a guy who had his nook digitally signed by an author on a page but she did not know how he did it.

A digital signature isn't the same thing as a signed book.
In 50 years I'll still have a signed book, chances are I won't still have the tablet/e-reader that the digital book was on.

Soooooooooooo jtr.... if you were a crazy world famous superstar and some busty young thing presented her left breast to you and a sharpie you would waggle the finger and say "You DO realise don't you young lady that this signature will wash off in your next shower, or, perchance if you are casual in your abolitions the one after that, IF not before, say when Frank our resident roadie drools over you in the back of the tourbus, and then, sad to say, you will be without it. I give you final warning.... you wouldnt have a current CD cover perhaps you would prefer me to sign?

That's when you tell her you'll gladly resign it every couple of days to keep it fresh.

People have gotten Terry to sign their bodies before now. Then they go to a tattooist and get the signature made permanent. :P

It does look good, I have to say, but no doubt all the fabulous wifi it has will not work at my flat, since I appear to be in an internet blackspot. :doh:
