Please don't take my post seriously
Not a bad logo (your 1st one), but definitely the world's slowest server.

Not too keen on the second one?...

It's difficult to test the speed of the server (it's a University one) from within the building! I usually get good speeds from it at home.

Well, I'm in China. ADSL is grossly oversold. At this time of night,
with so many Windoze users playing online games, it's about the
speed of dialup in the States.

No, I didn't like your second or third ones. But IMNSHO, the first one
is a great representation of the Slackware philosophy. So if I were
voting, atm your #1 would win, followed by kite's drunkard's boxing.

That's what I was (half-seriously) aiming for: KISS. Or something

Really, are you quite sure you didn't use M$ Paint ?

Also, I have taken several art courses in the past, although they were not digital art courses, they did teach me many good art principles. You know, maybe I should do one by hand and scan it in, I bet it'll be much better. All I need now is some inspiration on what to do.

Lol, that's funny. Do you prefer a radio full of static to Bach or other good music, too?

Sorry, Bruce Hill, but 1024x768 is the only size I have for that. It should convert pretty well though as it is fairly high resolution. If you want to have the other one that goes with it (for bootsplash background), send me an email and I'll send the whole kit to you.

asked, "What does that say?" She answered, "Slack wars." "What do you
think of the new logo?" She replied, "I hate it. I'm sorry -- I don't
think it's good."

Out of the mouth of babes ...
And I asked my kids (10 and 13). They both hate it.
You know, children always tell the truth and so I decided to ask some more kids and drove down to South Park, Colorado.
Stan: "the logo sucks ass"
Kyle: "yeah, sucks ass"
Butters: "what do the other kids think of it?"
"they hate it"
"then I hate it too!"
Cartman: "cool!!!"
Kenny didn't understand it and tried to read it hanging upside down, which unfortunately killed him...

Oh, and I have also submitted this to the propaganda page.
Nice logo!
