Digital Signatures

.
Technology!!! Hrrmmppphh....besides the fact that the industry is responsible for putting food on my table, technology has to be the single most frustrating thing ever created!

The instructions say clearly that I have 2 options: Either I can upload a digital signature and print out my acknowledgement or I can print a verification form, take it to the crowded Income Tax office, wait for acknowledgement etc etc.

So if anyone has ANY clue on how I can fix this...please help!!
