    The barcode in the logo at the top of the forum pages actually says something. Anyone have a barcode scanner, or the ability to figure it out? :)

    Definitely would be a tough one (since it's so small). Would be rather amazed if someone got it. :)

    I own a barcode scanner, but I don't think the quality and size of your logo is anywhere close enough to make it readable

    Ummmm ... UPC standards say 12 digits (no letters) and requires "guard bars" ... usually these are "dropped", but looks like you have cropped those ... and when looking at a 800% magnification in Photoshop, it appears there might be a "101" start bar on the left, but I don't see a "101" end bar on the right. I think what is complicating this is that your GIF is showing at least 4 shades of grey ... when in actual fact, the bars should be either black or white ... probably some "averaging" from your image program.

    So ... if you put a good quality image up (doesn't have to be bigger, just no greys in the bar code), this should be easy to decipher.

    BUT ... there are other barcode standards besides UPC, so it's possible you might be using one of those, especially because the width of the bar code itself is 140 pixels, and there should be 95 "bits" of information out there.

    Welllll ... according to this page, there are over 300 bar codes ... and most of 'em that I looked at depend on "black/white" for the bars ... so given the at least 4 shades of grey I saw in yours, someone else smarter than me will have to figure this one out! ;-)
