I still think thats rather large....See the forum rules on the top of anything like switcher hangout.

I believe that the requirement is exactly the size of my image.

You've basically been talking to your self. Lol. I have one recomendation... The finder icon could use a 3D effect. Like this :

How about removing the border? The only background you post on is white so you will never notice the lack of transparency. The border is quite far away from the focus so it kind of loses its purpose anyway.

A second typeface for the text below your name might be a good idea too, and perhaps tighten them together a bit? At the moment the different elements of the image are kind of all over the place with seemingly little rhyme.

I like it but it definitely needs to be smaller. Right now it exceeds the allowable signature rules. You can see those here:
http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/news-community-announcements/announcements.html

It's too tall and the file itself is about twice as large as sigs are allowed to be.

But like I said, it's definitely a nice start, and I also agree with edge, a second font under might look cool.
