Hence why I tried to discontinue the display of just more logos (noticed
I stopped posting images), and turn it into what the logo should say.
Alas someone goes and responds to the "what do think the logo should
say", with "here's what the logo should look like" :-(

OK, but you are doing exactly what you said we should not do.
So, you are saying that a "rocket" portrays Boost to you? If so, why?
Are there other *concepts* (not instances) that would represent Boost to
Do you know someone who is familiar about Boost? Ask them what they
