And since we needed more room in the title bar, we decided to put the shirt we made for the contest on the front page. We decided to put some designs on Zazzle to raise money for engineering education charities and have some great memorabilia at the same time.  10% of shirt costs will go towards charity (the rest goes to overhead of us not having to bulk order or ship to anyone–the cost of easy logistics).
