[RC5] Distributed.net Advertising/PR ideas...

Good idea Alex,

Some sort of distributed.net paraphernalia would be cool. I'm thinking
T-shirts... geeks love T-shirts. I would also invest in a poster if one
were made available. Although, I've already made my own poster which
consists of a screen capture from the November 7th "Top 100 Participants
Yesterday" stats (in which I broke 80th) that was printed on a 56 inch
color plotter. But even my crappy poster has stirred up a lot of
interest in the project! So an official one would be even cooler. 

As for the slogan, "The Fastest Computer On Earth" is fine with me ;)

ideas...

			I have a few ideas for advertising for
distributed.net. But, before I get
		into that, is there going to be a white version of the
d.net logo? I see
		that there is one, sorta, but it's only one size, unlike
the many sizes of
		the black version :(.

		Now, onto the ideas:

		* How about posters with the d.net logo? Perfect for any
geek's dorm room <g>.

		* This one's more likely though: bumper stickers? It
could have some catchy
		slogan, and the URL. Or, for the more adventurous, it
could include
		rsa-crypto-sig, in case any foreigners are driving along
;).

		* Lastly, t-shirts? DESCHALL made shirts after they
cracked DES, and lots
		of people (including me) bought one... They could even
be as simple as the
		d.net logo, with a catchy slogan or something...

		And, yes, if any of these were made, I'd buy some :).
