Talking I just made the awesomest forum sig!

Let me explain exactly what it does...

For non-tech members:

I text my website my odometer reading, it calculates my total miles and makes a sig picture! Yay!

For those who care about the tech stuff:

I wrote a script in PHP that updates my miles on my Ninja 250.

The way it works is, I send a text message to my server to a certain email box. It then parses the email and extracts the odometer reading that I texted it and calculates how many miles I actually put on it since I did not buy it new. It then stores the info into a file. Every time someone views my sig, the PHP script reads the file and draws a fresh image with the miles and the last update time.

I need to refine it to where it updates and saves the image only when I update the miles.

Yes, I'm still working out the bugs and making a purty interface. Once that is done I'll allow people to use it on MH.
