Update on Dynamic Quotes Sig Generator

A while back I posted about A Dynamic Random Quote Generator Sig. Something fun for forums that allow you to place a IMG in your signatures.  Well, I have updated it as well for myself.  The two on the previous post still work.  Although one of the owners updated the font and I really don't like it at all.  So I went through the forum and gathered up all the quotes that I could fit, and made my own and had my brother-in-law help me with getting it set up.

So here is the new URL:

Have fun. 

Now, if you want to make your own random sig generator, what you'll need to do is grab two files:
http://3meese.com/3meese/random/godtroll.txt

And

http://3meese.com/3meese/random/arial.ttf
Once you have these two files, you can do what you want. There will be a couple of things you will need to edit though. First of all, in the TXT file, you will see a line that says

$font = '/3meese.com/random/arial.ttf';. That will need to get changed to whatever your domain root structure supports. Then there is the part that starts off with: // array of random quotes $quotes = array( "If every trace of any single religion died out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again. - Pen Jilette", "It appears to me (whether rightly or wrongly) that direct arguments against christianity and theism produce hardly any effect on the public; and freedom of thought is best promoted by the gradual illumination of men's minds which follows from the advance of science. - Darwin", "The meme for blind faith secures its own perpetuation by the simple unconscious expedient of discouraging rational inquiry. - Richard Dawkins", "There's this thing called being so open-minded your brains drop out. - Richard Dawkins", This is where you can add in more of your quotes. Just start typing them in or copy paste them in above the previous quote. Just make sure that the start of the quote is where you start the quotation marks ", and when you get to the end (including attribution) is where you end the quote with another quotation mark and a comma ",.  That will give you the full quote.  And you can add as many as you want.  Then save the TXT file as a PHP, and upload it along with the font file.  Easy as that!
