Even though the BC Peliguin isn't gettin' much love around here,

I suggest we consider going beyond the BC (Bleeping Computer) BS (Bumper Sticker).


Maybe this on the back of a t-shirt:

(about 10" high)

and this on the front over the left breast:

or

No worries - I'll keep the BC Peliguin happy.

Wow, almost a whole day and 27+ views and no responses or other suggestions.

(Well, I did get one PM.)



I guess that sends a signal to the site owners regarding whether the members would like BC t-shirts, etc.

Well,

I need the Bleeping Computer's site owner's permission.

Copywright stuff and all that, you know.

Maybe he wants only authorized designs, too.

Dunno.

I'm still taking care of the Peliguin while we wait.

I like the back design, but I think that it might need something different on the front... I do not know what though.

I have a good idea, get the BC Peliguin on the front and keep the BC man on the back :D
I would love to own a BC shirt (but not white, dosn't look good on me, stains too easily)

As I just do not have the time, and trust me I wish I did, I have no problem with members putting together a t-shirt that promotes BC and what it stands for!

Thanks Grinler.

:thumbsup:


OK, if folks really like my ideas, then stand by for a week or so, and maybe BC will have a plan.

I like the shirt idea too.......without the bird (sorry JohnWho).

How about keeping it simple like the BC BS, using machine embroidery:

I'm not enamored with using any mascot's representing the BC. Unless something very unique is concocted.

I especially don't care for messy birds. I don't think such represents what the members of the BC are trying to accomplish.

Find something else to represent the BC?

Oh, sure, now that we are getting serious, people start plucking the feathers off of the peliguin!

:thumbsup:


How about the back as shown above in post # 1,

and the front like what is shown in post # 8

except with the words "Free Computer help when you need it." and "bleepingcomputer.com" in the monitor?

(Edit - will post a sample image later today - JW)


The "BSOD" idea would be OK, except we also help Mac and Linux folks, and it may not be as suggestive for them.
