The main problem is that our ad is going to be one of the important milestones
in visibility and having _a_ logo is important before publishing it. It's not
like we can afford having lots of ads every so often. LJ has found a way to 
give us a good deal but we can't abuse that. So, if we decide to drop the
logo, we should find one before publishing the ad.

If it's a chicken, then it's no penguin and there is no implied relation to 

Seriously, I don't find it's so terrible but it doesn't excite me either. I'd
love to have something I _really_ like but can we go through the process of
setting pages up and getting submissions and so on yet again?

Certainly not the most important issue but one we should deal with before
publishing the ad IMHO.
