    Which doesn't fully work when extended partitions are involved. When
    I repartitioned my 1.2G IDE drive, my Linux file system residing in a
    newly created logic drive in an extended partition moved by 512 bytes
    when I rebooted. Grr.

    By using this line in your .sig, you violate 18 USC 1462, committing a class D
    felony, good for up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine:
    Planned Parenthood provides information on abortions.
