I'm the same way. I take out everything but the last post. (including
any .sigs) As for reading them any other way, I like them like I'm doing
now or sectioned off to answer the questions or what not as they come down.

Otherwise, hey everyone. I'm Michael and I'm new to the list. :) Been
using Linux si
nce 98 and for the past 5 days, I've done nothing but FreeBSD.

I'm not quite brave enough to go to 5.2.1. :) I must say, in the last 5
days, I've learned more about FreeBSD than I really learned about Linux
since '98. :)
