You may want to ask where did I get the idea for this thread. Well, don't.. I just watched at our header upthere. Laughing out loud

Let this be a "just for fun" thread to amuse nuxified people around here..

Tell a story that would describe how did the Tuxes foot grow so much in our header? :smt003:

I'll start with one of the more obvious ones..

"Tux walked down the streat when someone threw a big old heavy computer box through the window and it fell right onto his left foot and it swelled. The computer box had a sticker on it saying "Wintel Inside". While going to the ambulance to have that foot taken care of he thought to himself "if he was running GNU/Linux that computer would have been alive by now".

Later on he thought that since his foot is so big now he might put a tatoo on the back of it since everybody can see it every time he lies on the beach. That's when he tatooed the "NXFD" on it. It makes people wonder what it is so they google and find out about Nuxified.org and after a bit of surfing on the subject, they end up nuxified themselves, running GNU/Linux and enjoying life.

And everybody then live happily ever after" :banana:

Seriously though, the big Tuxes foot isn't actually big. The original idea I had when I made that logo was that the Tuxes foot hit you in your forehead stamping a "NXFD" sign on it marking you officially NUXIFIED. Laughing

But let's assume the story is different for the sake of fun. Make up your own. Smiling

Cheers

It's caused by shooting himself in the foot trying to use proprietary software. Same ending as Daniel's story.

By the way, the logo is much prettier now it fits the Tango style!

Actually, it doesn't yet. :bigsmile: There is supposed to be a highlight.

Right.. I just removed those crystal glowing and changed the tummy gradient on Tux. I am not sure about putting a border and highlight on it around the Tuxes black body would be a good idea, but it can be done for his foots so I'll try that. If I understand correctly I just need to put some shading on that foots border and put an inner border highlight. Well, that shouldn't be too thick as I think that wouldn't look better that way, but I can put a thin one in anyway, might get an interesting result.

Thanks
Daniel
