    How long have the S and the A been there in Physics and Forums? in the bottom of the first letter. And I also saw a shopping cart speeding away next to a google adsense ad! Since when!!!

    I just noticed the S and A yesterday, what the heck are they? The shopping carts have been around for a week or two at least, I think.

    I don't know about the shopping cart, but the title "Physics Forums" that is at the top of each page has an S embedded into the bottom of the P, and an A embedded into the bottom of the F.

    The S & A aren't visible to me either.

    I'm in Prime, and they are there, but until someone mentioned them, I didn't notice at all...and even when they did, I was staring at it a long time before seeing them. Try clearing the cache if you don't see them after staring at the header for a while. They're very small, and light text inside the PF letters themselves. I think something a bit more prominent is needed.

    And, after checking Nexus, no, it's not there in Nexus. Probably too hard to modify the header with all the flash stuff in Nexus.

    I think its a nice touch. Its not overt.. very subtle. :) I wish I got to know SA, sounds like he was a nice guy.

    And I had to clear my cache as well.

    Greg (and/or Chroot), that was a very cool thing that you did as a tribute. Subtle, yet powerful, like the man himself. Anyone who doesn't believe that PF is a family will have to re-evaluate his stance.

    Cache are little things your internet browser downloads so that it can retrieve them faster the next time you want to see them, like maybe the PF title at the top of the page. Let's say the PF logo changed (as it did) and our computer didn't know that. It would retrieve the old, cached image, and use that one instead of the downloading the new one. On Safari I press option, apple, E, and I think it's been said how to do it on Firefox and Internet Explorer.
