What needs to be done?  I have not been following the threads concerning
the logo(s) so that I am in the dark.  Do you want ideas, drawings, help
and/or logos?  I have a degree in fine art ... I may as well put it to
work for some good (I'm studying computer eng. now).  I am not bad with a
pencil and paper.  I am pretty good with some graphics applications too.
