      Is there a way to add a signature block to this group? I read the
      posts online, noy in my e-mail and I reply directly on line, not
      throuogh e-mail. So my e-mail signature will not make it to the
      posts. Does anyone know if there is a way to have a sig. just for
      this group. I've looked and tried the help section (Is that thing
      useless or what?) and can't find anything.

      Is there a way to store one no my keyboard? Like Ctrl+Alt+? I see
      auto fill but it's just a one liner type deal.

      Currently signatureless.
