Ok, maybe I am a bit tired this morning, but I am having difficulties translating this line above:

I read that to mean "if autograph hunters are satisfied with the image below"

Well, making them small enough to put on a small page would be worse then on a t-shirt for readability, wouldn't it?

For me, clarity is not that problem. Font size is :-) If my reading glasses need need to be any thicker, I will need to invest in a wearable microscope :-)

That could be too. I wasn't sure, it just looked about as odd as some of my local phraseology must look to others outside my area :-)

Think of it like this, you can meet me in person, or maybe you get enough of me online and would rather keep it that way. It's a funny way of saying if you don't want a signed copy.

Ah yes, I forgot he is from that Far Western Country of CA ;-) Thanks for the translation and clearing that up for me. :-)

Now there's an idea... Mail about a copy of the book to everyone who's in it, and get 'em to sign it!

Crazy! We should totally do that!

How would that work on the t-shirt ible?

Complicatedly - Maybe that one could have a secondary page of signatures made from the T-shirt image.

Maybe a collage of project pics might have been nicer than just the listing. Oh well, next time.

I'm afraid you need to sit down and have a strong root beer on the counter. Only Rocket's name and url for the project are listed.
