So You Want a Whiz-Bang Looking Logo ?

If so you're part of a big club.

A good amount of web masters out there want a logo for their web site that looks like it was made with a SGI Prism cluster.

I can empathize with these web masters. You're merely trying to make sure your web site looks top of the line in a bid to attract and retain visitors. No harm no foul.

But let's take a look at something shall we ...

Let's take a little trip over to the Alexia Top 500 list. Now if you take a look at the current top 30 (see list below) you'll notice not a one of them has a Whiz-Bang cutting edge rendered with a SGI Prism cluster looking logo. In fact, most of the sites I go to have fairly plain looking logos.

What does it all mean ? I'll leave that one to you.
