Just registered the domain FinalGear.com. smile.gif thumbs_up.gif

I couldn't really decide, but with other TV torrent sites now starting to do Top Gear, I leaned away from GearDownloads.com to put more emphasis on the forums and such.

Top5Gears.com was... I dunno, I mean, I liked ita lot, but to be truthful, it didn't make a ton of sense.

Ultra_Kool_Dude's idea was the deciding factor:

I can picture the title graphic for "Final Gear" - It's a gearbox with 5th gear, then Top Gear, and an extra slot for "Final Gear".

I just picked it as a pointlessly stupid screen name because it makes me laugh. biggrin.gif

Sorry - off topic - I didn't mean to spoil the big unveiling. tongue.gif

Couple days probably. I've significantly cut down on the number of queries to the database by the main site - I've just got to finish up cleaning up the code.

Your comment changed my mind about the whole thing to Ultra Kool Dude. smile.gif I think Final Gear will be a really great name.

I'm working on some Jeremy Clarkson emoticons\smiles for whenever the forum is back up, but I think I'll start playing around with some sort of a 'Final Gear' logo design. If anyone else has some graphics skills we should have a friendly competition or group effort towards designing a good logo - the name has too much potential to ignore it. biggrin.gif

Couple days, k cool, gives me time to try and get my FTP back in order, I never thought I would see the day when I filled my 120gig HDD full of Automotive stuff only :S:S, not too good.

I'm no good at making logos myself but I know a few people who are, I could see if they were up to it and pitch their efforts in.

Clarkson happyfaces etc.. now that would be a site too see, if Viper approves of the idea, I could work on that.

Edit: My gf who is a few meters away from the screen and not wearing glasses would like to add that the logo above looks like the chinese flag wink.gif
