Some of us in Cali are a tad curious (read clueless) too.

I like that one :)

Click on the MC Escher Google logo, and it will bring up the results and tell you who he is, if you don't know.

Ironically, I am getting an error when trying to view the first result (mcescher.com) and it shows a blank cache page. Hmmmm....

Anyway I can turn off all these different logos? They are annoying.

They aren't permanent, they just show up on special days. It is just a coincidence there has been two in a three day period. They only do about 10 a year, and it shows up on the home page only, not on any of the results pages.

┐How much money extra the owners of the site in the first position will have to pay their hosting company for going over their traffic limit?

Hey!
M.C.Escher Logo!
Intially the new logo looked dumb, but when learnt abt the importance of the image.I was startled and amazed at the work.

The image gives us 2 hands which are self-reliant in their nature.""The hands draw themselves much the way that consciousness considers and constructs itself, mysteriously, with both self and self-reference inseparable and coequal""

>>Thanks "quotations" and google,
I became a big favourite of M.C.Escher and art now.I thank google for the same,in my routine and busy schedule I wouldn't had much time to explore on my interests.This is really nice way of highlighting the greats of our century.Making people like me know abt them.

This one is too dark and sad.

The disembodied hands may look a bit creepy, but I think it's great that Google recognized Escher - even if this did prevent the "Brett's Birthday" logo from being displayed this year. I think computer people (including me) find Escher's art very appealing - the intricate drawings and optical illusions are inherently fun to study. (With Escher, you never need someone with a PhD in art history to explain the cultural and emotional significance of a purple blob on a white background...)

Escher and Dali are two of my favorites so I was pleased to see Escher's "hands" honored.

You might enjoy the following link rogerd: [cnn.com...]

Dali never seems to need any explaining either although hallucinogens might aid in getting to the proper state of mind. ;)
