I was actually re-thinking about this the other day.  I agree with the
one-logo idea. Only I think the zig-zag should be reworked. I don't like
that the points stick out.  It throws the balance off...makes it almost
hard to look at.  I'll see if I can play around with it.  I guess the
font size isn't a big deal.

After writing that 1st paragraph, I found a version of the zig-zag I
like, so I'll attach it.  I don't like my font at all though...I would
dig through my font collection, but I really like the one that Ivo used
in the original design of this logo.  What font is that?  I'm using
Sodipodi for SVG creation, and it won't open eps or fig or I would just
copy it in.  Anyone know a good PS->SVG converter or a program that can
read/write either...besides having to shell out the $ for an
Adobe/Macromedia product?
