Stuey came up with that in the Forum discussion. I was playing with gimp and made it up.  I need to get in the css and try to figure out how to get it to size bigger. The actual image is 8 inches by 2 inches. 

Something in the css is sizing it smaller.

I knew it sounded familiar, but I didn't remember the context. Woo! Point for Stuey!

You don't really want to use CSS to expand an image - it's best to set the pixels the way you want it from the beginning. That's also why you shouldn't work in inches - pixels are somewhat more consistent.

You may want to use inkscape instead of Gimp. http://www.inkscape.org/

Inkscape is a vector graphics program, meaning that if you create the logo once, you can easily scale it up or down and it'll always look right.

the "a" looks too much like a "Q"

It also reminds me of Dungeons and Dragons for some reason
