As a gesture of participation in this group and a FreeBSD user my self,
I have had more
track record with Photoshop and Quark Express on Mac. I also have two
color laser printers. I can grab a logo off the web page and load it
into photo shop, do a
color separation and print a proof and submit it to some one with some
sway in FreeBSD.
But seriously, a good high resolution file can be rastorized and sent
to a printer complete
with text (rastorized in the image) and a printer can print it from
the Rastorized file on a laser printer.
It doesn't need to be done 4 color offset.
I expressed some question of the new logo but consider that I am not
enough to contribute things like patches, or BETA testing.
Another responder to my logo subject e_mail asked me since I
represented my self as a
graphic designer and fine artist why I didn't submit something to the
contest. It didn't dawn
on me at the time. But, now I am coming up with some design ideas that
are in somewhat
of a totally different direction and reflect what my personal
preferences in a logo would be.
That is too late in the game but I would like to work up some ideas
that you can review and
keep on a shelf if they are interesting enough. I have just finally got
my web site back on the 'air'.
But I don't want to exploit the list for the sake of self promotion.
Direct responses to me via
e-mail and positive inquiries as to how and to whom I can submit some
hard copy sketches
and preliminary proofs. I can't reproduce volumes of copies on large
format lazer without
charging something. It costs over $900.00 to replace the toner on this
machine and $700
some odd to replace it on my 8.5 X 11 printer. I am a glorified
hobbyist. I make virtually no money
so far in spite of spending the last 10 years trying to learn how to
use computers and software,
up a decent enough
web site. This is why I like open source, I have even drifted away from
the expense of keeping
up with Mac hardware and software. I have Yellow Dog Linux running on
my older Macs.
I can understand the frustration that volunteers must feel that assume
responsibility for a
commendable project like FreeBSD. So in conclusion, instead of griping
about the logo,
I will offer what I can contribute. You wouldn't mind if I posted my
own logo ideas for Free
BSD on my web site? I will give out the domain name to direct e-mail
response. My site
is served over an ADSL connection and hasn't been stress tested. And it
won't be for a
few weeks before I get a presentation posted.
Thanks for being here;
