… although you should probably use the d'Alembertian then, are 
missing a µ_0 with respect to the units of the other equations, 
and are assuming the Lorenz gauge. :P

Would be nice if there was a tshirt with the new D logo. 
Something like

http://www.blender3d.org/e-shop/product_info_n.php?products_id=141

How do you upload the prints to cafepress? Maybe someone on this 
list can create something cool looking. Anyone?

The web site has some buttons for setting up a shop and uploading the artwork. 
It's pretty simple.

I like wearing the shirt, as it causes interesting people to come up and talk to 
you.

Doesn't everyone work in units such that c = 1 ? ;-)

While I think buying gifts is a good idea, I don't see the harm 
in having a donate button so that people can make direct 
donations. Am I right in thinking the more popular the language 
the more maintenance required? The more people could donate the 
more progress could be achieved.

There's a new D logo? Where?

Some time ago, I made a quick-n-dirty povray model of D man:

	https://github.com/quickfur/dmascot

You can see some sample renders here:

	http://eusebeia.dyndns.org/~hsteoh/tmp/mascot.png

But it didn't seem to have attracted much attention. Perhaps people
think it's too simplistic. *shrug*

Look at dlang.org. That logo in the top-left is fairly new. It didn't exist 
when digitalmars.com was D's main website.

Anyone that can put the vector art for the dlogo online?

I might have go with attaching the text so that we can have a 
more up-to-date t-shirt.

It is possible to donate via http://flattr.com, and it supports 
GitHub repositories. Those to whom you donate will eventually 
need to register on flattr to get donations, so it might be a 
good idea to notify them :)
