 my hurd logo concept is a gnu in the foreground standing, two gnu
behind(and slightly smaller due to perspective) and partially obscured by
the front gnu, three behind the two(and smaller still) and etc fading back
to the infinity line. When you click on the picture they all start doing an
irish jig like in riverdance.

Hi, I did think about the Gnus but thought having one Gnu in with the shapes
would make the image look lopsided. Besides I can't draw complicated things.

Here are a few ideas that incorporate Gnus:

1) Use the Gnu image as a sort of etheral cloud-like beneficient overlord
like god thingy in the sky above the shapes, looking down and smiling on

2) Replace the shapes with half a dozen actual Gnus (different bright
colours). The more I think about this the more I like it better than the
shapes idea. They can still frollic about inside .mng files, and you can
still collect the whole set to line up across the top of your monitor to
to when no-one else wants to be your friend or use as characters in deep
and meaningful dramatisations for your work coleagues.

Yes I'll see what I can do with the second idea and get back to you all
have 200 student assignments to mark sometime soon - I've been putting it
for too long already).

PS. Anyone like to send me a cartoonish full body profile of a Gnu? I'll
the internet for some images I can attack with gimp, too.
