Lots of lines - it's still very busy. :-) You have to be cautious of the
detail in an image such as this, particularly the lines, because they can
contribute to an ugly moire effect on some monitors. If you go back over the
previous splash images we've done, I'm sure you'll notice that we've gone
for smooth, simple splashes.

(By the way, rather than attaching images to your emails, please put them up
on a public website and post the URL - every attachment goes to all of the
list subscribers, and that adds up to a lot of bandwidth.)
