I have had a look through there - there's some good stuff, but nothing
that I had in mind... having said that, I suppose a small leaflet
would work just as well in this instance.

1. Is there a new strapline, or has the concept been dropped completely?
2. Thanks. I'm updating it now with the official stuff from Canonical.

I have to admit, I did like the idea of the QR code, but having now
put it into action it does look a little odd.  I can appreciate their
uses in situations where the user cannot necessarily "take it away
with them", but this is not the case in this scenario.  That, and it
does detract from the (IMO) awesome ocelot on the front.

Grant. :)
