Like I said, if we use his name, we'd first have to get his permission. Just "Chuck" is okay as that doesn't identify a specific individual, but his full name would require his okay.

Some people are fine with non-profits doing so. Others require compensation, which we really don't want to get into.

I'm afraid that picture is copyrighted, Mike. While I enjoy the enthusiasm, I actually suspect we would get into trouble using Chuck Norris' name without first obtaining his permission.

maybe to add some nice/funny slogan on the front under the logo, and cool picture on the back.
some of community members are still in early twenties (and counting) . .... :)

shall we open a contest for good slogan to put? and mid-size pict to put on the back side?

- living the parallel world
- OpenMPI - breaking the barriers!
for the mid-sized back-side picture, I suggest chuck norris, you can`t beat it.
