Default something new at the top of the forum

Yesterday I noticed a new image that had showed up at the top of all forum pages:

http://www.mersenneforum.org/png/eleven.png

I'm not really sure what it's supposed to mean. Is it a volume gauge? Temperature? Is it supposed to have any relevance to Mersenne primes or the like?

so no revelance to mersenne prime, I guess... unless you count the fact that 11 is prime

It has? I never saw it before.

(BTW: I originally said it showed up at the bottom of all forum pages, but it seems somebody's been messing with my post. )

@firejuggler: thanks, I get it now.

The forum server performance actually goes to B. We only wish it went to 11.

Yes, but if B is eleven, then 11 is seventeen. :)
