If they had asked me i could have done one for them at a lot less expense... like the new one though its better than the old logo, i often wondered what the crock at the end of the rainbow would have been full off.... Gold?

Incidently did you know about HAL the computer off 2001 one oddity the writer claims he never knew about at the time, add one letter of the alphabet to each letter of HAL you get IBM /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

HAL = IBM

Take HAL and add a letter to each one H+1=I, A+1=B, L+1=M

I like it. I don't know what it signifies, but I like it. It's modern, contemorary, and looks good!

Where you been living Boos on another planet....ok... hang on.. ok... Sweden, yes that is another planet..../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

OK the red eye was the main part of the computer HAL in 2001 a space oddessy the movie and he trys to kill all of the crew.... one of which is called Dave. Dave the last survivor pulls all the memory boards out of HALs mainframe to shut him down as he has gone nuts and is killing the crew, a bit like Windows XP but not as destructive.

The film starts off with a bunch of monkeys standing round a big oblong block of granite beating bones on more bones in a total state of disary....sort of a version of olegs ready room but more civilised.

It ends up with some flashing lights and an unborn fetus floating around in space.....there see i told you it was simple to comprehend. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

My understanding was that IBM were asked if the film makers could use an IBM machine, the corporate suits thought that a computer, one of theirs, going wrong and killing the human race was indeed a Bad Thing, so refused. To get his own back the script writer added one to each letter , as a thankyou not.

And we all know where IBM finally went wrong, letting some muppet write their operating system but not retaining the rights to it, i believe his name was Gates? Bill Gates?
