See near the top of the thread, there was discussion about software in 
cars, esp. Rich's car!

No, the idea is FFMPEG as a 'fasty fast' car. FF are the doors above 
wheels, MPEG is (in) the front hood. Of course, the final sketch would 
have to be in Ferrari red :-)

Another idea was to emphasize the 'free' with 2 F'es, one facing 
backward, the top bars longer, to look like a bird, with indeed MPEG 
making the notes of a bird's song. But all my sketches came out so 
crappy I didnt post them
