Re: T-shirt update & slogans
I'm not sure T-shirts are still cool. In fact, maybe it's my age but the
only time I wear a T-shirt is on weekends, usually under a sweater or a
shirt. Most workplaces that have a "business casual" dress code frown on
them, and "professionals" don't wear them much.
However, golf shirts are quite acceptable attire and would be different
than the usual T-shirt. Even the FreeBSD "world tour" rock shirts (long
sleeves, black) were a refreshing change.
I suggest keeping the colour choices small and go for bulk pricing. Let's
say dark forest green and navy blue with the daemon in red embroidery (or
the stylised one - sphere and halo), with OpenBSD and a short slogan
(Secure, stable, multi-platform) on two lines. No slogan on the back.
My opinions, for what it's worth.
