9. Epilogue

13/08/97 by Leo Breebaart:

Eventually, the hedgehog signature fad died out, Jimmy Brokaw left a.f.p, and there were no ASCII hedgehog sightings on the newsgroup at all for more then a year.

Until, that is, Gideon Hallet suddenly started using the following sig:

     ((((  | Gideon_Hallett@3Com.com.========================|
  o__))))) | - Bringing permed '70s-retro hedgehogs to the  =|
__ \'((((( | common people since he got bored one afternoon.=|

If any more original hedgehogs appear, I will add them to this file. But Gideon's example notwithstanding I still fear that the a.f.p. ASCII hedgehog is an endangered species.


LB: 29/01/98

Endangered perhaps, but not extinct yet! It appears that hedgehogs can also survive *outside* the a.f.p. environment, as witnessed by this signature from a group called oxbridge.tat:

10. Rise and fall of the hedgehog, 1999 - 2000

Gideon Hallett had a new hedgehog for the start of 1999. Alas, the poor beastie had fallen on hard times.

Peter Purveyor of Filth) you have left me with very little option
other than to call in the most potent weapon in my armoury, you
