Mascot

I wish we had a mascot. Or maybe a less abstract logo. I'm jealous of John's huge publicity :P.

Photoshop a Care Bear

Anyone "Care" to Photoshop the PA.c logo onto the belly of a Care Bear?

Oh, please God, no

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

Wow... I don't know what to say. It's the pink one! Coulda gone with blue, or green... but I guess pink is the closest to PortableApps Red.

Didn't even mean that seriously, either, but... wow.

OliverKOh, please God, no

Sorry dude, it was the first thing I thought of. A better '80s-style cartoon mascot, now that I think about it. One word: ThunderTank. With the PortableApps logo shopped onto the back, where it opens.

Bonus points: Lion-O standing next to it, with the PortableApps logo shopped onto his belt and sword.

Double bonus points: Cheetara and Wilykit, the latter aged about 10 years, on either side of him, with the PortableApps logo shopped onto their chests (where their ThunderCATS logo sits normally).

Triple bonus points: Snarf shopped onto the Firefox globe in place of the fox, somewhere in the picture.

Pink was the first one to come up standing at the right angle for the logo Blum

And I agree, bad mascot idea... but like I said, I was bored and happened to be playing in GIMP when I was reading that, so...

...how about this?

Oh yeah

Oh yeah. Love me some Metroid. At least 2D Metroid, never played a 3D Metroid I liked (also never played the GCN, Wii, or N64 ones, just NDS). If you have an Xbox 360 and you like Super Metroid, you owe it to yourself to look at an arcade game called Shadow Complex. Exactly the same kind of game but military themed (no aliens) and 2.5D action. Amazing. I'm on my fifth run, now on Insane, the hardest difficulty. Also compared to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, but it's more like Super Metroid than anything.

Try this. My GIMP skills are

Try this. My GIMP skills are horrid, but I thought this would be a nice joke\suggestion. Or something. My PA.com gradient that I made really doesn't do to well when it gets big like that . . . .

But which one's John, and who's the other one?

I Meant

I meant something like a cute little giraffe or something or maybe a dolphin holding a flash drive :P.
