If it's moved so be it. Please excuse me for reposting my previous
e-mail here, but I want to make others aware about my preferences. Make
some lobby for them. I will put the winner on my site after all and I
would prefer to have here something that I like :-)

I have to agree with Ted that Tero's hats can be confusing. I haven't

the pirates. Oh, no... that's also red. :-)

I like to feel like a wolf. :-) 
But agree, it has many side connotations and not everybody sees the wolf
like the nicest animal around.

So lets vote for raul-1 :-)
