Subject Re: Logo Proposition for VelocityTools
Date Sat, 15 Dec 2007 17:05:29 GMT
 Hi Claude,

Thanks for your suggestion. However, my harddrive died and I am unable to
change the logo until I find my old photoshop CD, which might take some time
XD.

I'm going to email the dev for voting on which logo looks the best. If more
people like the design that you like, I'll recreate it.

Regards,

Edward
