sorry for the shameless plug of my art

but I thought it worth mentioning. Was the stardot logo inspired in any way by this thing in Wandsworth, SW18? :lol:

'fraid not. It's a fab design by our own MartinB, made up of the MODE 7 letters for *. along with some atomic swooshy things (tech term) because Acorn's computers were often named after atomic things (Atom, Electron, Proton etc.)

Maybe I've had one drink too many... Maybe the Arc should have been called the Neutron, and the advertising campaign "becuase it's da bomb".

... maybe it's a good idea that I'm not in advertising!
