It all began 50 years ago today. We couldn't let that milestone go un-marked, and hence until Jan 4th ( the 50th anniv of Sputnik 1's re-entry) we will be wearing a celebratory logo.

Unexpected and beautiful!

I spoke with my father last night (he is 91) and we both recalled going out for several weeks and trying to see sputnik during those chilly fall nights 50 years ago! I don't recall ever seeing anything (I guess only the booster was visible since sputnik was only a foot or two across), but I do remember one night when he took me outside and we both saw Echo (200 foot mylar like beach ball) fly over the house just when the paper said it would !

thanks Doug

Nice work Doug, looks distinct.
Happy Aniversary Travelling Companion!
And thank you, both, Sputnik and Ellison, for gathering us all! smile.gif

Nice, but it took me a while to find it. It only appears on the "Pro" skin, and I am set to use the default.

Doug,

I was wondering if you are going to do some commemorative merchandise for the shop based on the new ( if transient) logo?

Cheers

Brian

Yup - that was the plan all along. The pro-skin is now the forum default - and the older skin remains as a legacy for people who don't like the font of the new skin. What I hope to do is generate a second version of the Pro skin with the font of the old skin, so the option actually just becomes between two fonts.

I don't intend to sell anything with the logo on -it's just a temporary marker and the hassle involved in getting new CafePress stuff sorted far exceeds any returns from sales.

Very clean and classy look, Doug! The new color scheme seems easier to read and navigate. It also feels rather more upscale, and I think I will have to behave myself when I am in here. biggrin.gif

After that you can rotate it 90 degrees to represent the UMSF balloon.
