You are so right! I just scrolled up in my messages and I was ready to
quote an earlier mail on the list regarding the same issue, and then I
realized it was *yours* :-)
I tested the wallpaper in my openbox @1600x1200 resolution, and it
pleasantly filled the screen, all the elements were in place, nothing
bad happened.

Be sure I'll do that sooner or later. I must thank you again for doing
this, I'm even thinking of borrowing some content for the Romanian
debian-linux.ro website, after Wheezy release (whenever it may be).

You are perfectly right, this was the printable element and I had no
right to judge it by the way it's seen on the screen. I'll give it a try
whenever I'll come by a color printer, I only use b/w at home.

OK, I agree with with you, keeping them small and effective.

Let's say the order on the capsule would be as it follows:

Thank you for your work. If there's anything I can do, please don't
hesitate to ask.
