It is a big effort to get a good rate (80%+) and have it with usefull tests.
I for my self am still stuck on the 10% because i don't have the time to do further unit tests. But it still is a measurment for me since i can surely say those 10% are working if the tests don't fail.

I guess it's an issue most people have. I either don't have enough time to write proper tests or you don't have the knowledge to do good tests. I still need to get into a mocking framework to be able to test my methods where db querry are executed Smile | :)

if(this.signature != "")
    MessageBox.Show("This is my signature: " + Environment.NewLine + signature);
    MessageBox.Show("404-Signature not found");
