      Yeah. I think the best man won on the day - it was certainly my favorite :-)
      (Hmm.. now I have another use for my little doggy chasing his tail too, so I'm kinda glad he didn't win.)

      Kudos to pb_design!

      Can the CH *star* certain designs without logging on? just wondering because a number of my designs and others it appears automatically receive two stars that have been submitted within the time of the CH last logging into the system. I am new to this arena and would like to know. Thanks! :0

      Jeff & Joel, I would really appreciate some feedback on #229! (particulary a simple explanation why e.g. someone else's copy of my idea (that totally ignores the presence of mine) gets more stars... heh, ok, I know it's just a logo contest, but it still does require effort!)

      that is, the rounded corners on the logo might not show up on the dark rendering entry #275

      I have awarded a handful of five stars now that I have a better sense of what I like and don't like.

      i like #95 (really expresses what getting stackoverflow-ed feels like). #89 is pretty simple and clear too

      Thanks Mudeth.

      I really thought I'd come up with a winner - and a different take on Stack Overflow (from a recursion angle). Before that I had done a generic looking stack (on fire) but thought it was unoriginal.

      Ah well.. Good luck with yours, though!

      sambeau, that's really cool!

      jatwood, you mean two-dimensional? It may be one-dimensional in computer-speak, but the visual analogue is two-dimensional, since a variable by itself is one-dimensional. Sorry for nitpicking. :)
