[QUOTE=ET_;516996]I would buy a polo or a t-shirt as well. Summer is approaching.[/QUOTE]

Add my name to the list; the polo shirt is properly understated and snooty. Looks great. And the t-shirts ideas are good.

It's definitely better than having anything with "GIMPS" printed [B]anywhere[/B] on it.

Maybe we need to do a contest for renaming GIMPS to something less gimpy? :smile: Something we'd be proud to put on a t-shirt without answering a bunch of awkward questions?

After 23 years and 17 primes it is a bit late to rename? At least 20 years too late?

You do have some good suggestions in there, Uncwilly.

I'd forgotten about that thread when it came up previously. :smile:

We still have a quartet of snooty custom logo polos as pictured in post #13 looking for a good home:

M - black (lower right in pic), canary (upper left in pic)
L - pumpkin (upper right in pic), canary.

Sizing is generous - I'm 6'2" and a L fits me comfortably.

All it takes is a $100 donation to GIMPS! Just include the ship-to address for the shirt in the Paypal note field.

Perhaps someone could chip in the extra $14.80, just to bring it up to a prime number. Unless US $5,212.20 is a prime number in some other currency.
