Yes, originally I wanted to put some background on the logo, but it gets busy very quickly, especially if you're dealing with an area of 300 pixels or so. Aleph X scematics elements are very appropriate, so I tried to just extract the essence of it. See below:

Default In general interest.

Dan, Jason, Dave,

Do we plan to keep the existing colour scheme for the page..or are we looking at some alternatives, If so, can you please provide us all with some colour preferences, it would be a good guide. Also probably a bit more detail on the merchandise that we propose to do..like if its a Tshirt/cap etc what colour are we going to use. That too will have a important role to play in the selection of colours for the logo.

Secondly, Are gifs (for transparent background fills) mandatory. What i've observed is that whenever the logo doesnt fit into an environment a boundary is added to confine it so that the logo stands out in its original intended form. There is a strict boundary between the logo space and the background. And the logo is used without this boundary in cases where it blends seamlessly with the background. (that is in cases where the actual logo background is same as the background on which its used)
just some thoughts though..!!

Jason spent a lot of time getting to the existing color scheme... it won't be changed for the sake of change, but only if something that is better can be found.

Default A question about transparency.

This is for the webmaster types. When I preview my logos in the browser, there is no white fuzz around the edges (regardless of background color. After the logo gets uploaded to my web server and viewed in a browser from there, the fuzz appears. Apparently some bits get lost or ignored in the process of uploading and serving. Any idea where to look for the cause?

Please disregard that last question. I was previewing before exporting. The exporting settings are very important. Here is the same logo crunched to 10k and with almost no fuzz.

I have the following one. It borrows the type arrangement from the current logo but with a different, but still-similar font.

BTW, as I was browsing thru here there were a couple I liked quite a bit.

I also like this one, but there are some aspects of a couple others that I like better than my own. I probably have a few other ideas in me; I'm not done yet.

I hope the other contributors won't mind if I take one of their ideas and tweak it a little bit?

geewhizbang, that's my favourite so far, but it needs a bit of work.

Fixed the capitalization on this one.

I like the eye candy on this, but I'm still hoping for something that says more about the DIY aspect, but the right idea has not happened for me yet.
