Damn linux fanatics :)

We want "product identification"...the Penguin is what Linux is
identified with, and, as we *all* know, the last thing I would want to be
identified with :)

Someone came up with an alligator as our totem...but nobody seemed
able to come up with a *strong* image to use :( I kinda like an elephant
or turtle...a little slower, but highly dependable...

We need something to identify with that isn't already used (ie. I
won't suggest a little devil *grin*)...

Steve...I looked at the ones you made, and found then a little
dry...I personally think it is going to be difficult to do a 'Powered by'
icon with an animal on it, but is it possible to *jumps* out at you?
Maybe a little depth? Maybe emboss the work PostgreSQL, so that it stands
out from the page? I like the top-left one the most, against the white
background like that, but maybe have it stick out like a button?

I'm just throwing ideas out...take or leave any and/or all of them
