Gents, I notice a number of you have some great signatures (I think thats what they are called) at the bottom of your posts. Some are in fact awesome and so was wondering how you go about creating these little masterpieces and if there is a program available to help a newb like myself out in creating one.
Cheers for any help you chaps can offer. Thanks in advance.

Photoshop for mine, but I put it together real quick so it's pretty basic, and I borked the transparency around the edge. I'll get around to fixing it at some point though.

I know there must be some sites that will generate a sig for you though.

I love nice long walks in the country.
Especially if they're taken by people who annoy me!

Yeah Photoshop or MS Paint are great, just snap some screen shots in game here and there, get some Fleet emblems or icons(if applicable) and your achievements, etc. etc. can come together nicely for a sig picture.

MS Excel 2007 and MS Paint.

I use Excel just to position everything, create text boxes, use its glow effects, transparency tool and wordart, then screenshot dump into MS Paint to crop it to shape.

I may have to take a continuing education course on Photoshop.
