I agreed with Miro, but I have concede that your latest attempts
(slides 2 and 4) don't look too bad to me. But I don't like the look of
the slanted C++ in the background. For one I don't see the point of
stacking (staggering?) the "++". With the rocket there, is there really
any need to stylize the "C++"?
