Welcome to the [i]CentOS[/i] community.

Don't worry. I think [b]Gerald[/b] missed your question in the subject heading. :-P

I've always regarded it as a representation of a flower. :-)

I saw it, but did not recognize it as a question.
I had never thought about what it might be.
It reminds me of the origami flower baskets we all
made as children.

I did not see it as a question, either.

Origami ... hmm, as a Japanese I should have thought about it, but it did not occur to me :-)

I think of it as a diagram showing Gerald's head exploding from having to deal with one too many stupid questions.

I'll make a statement. In the English language, the word [i]Japanese[/i] is an adjective and should be followed by a noun. Hence the quotation, above, hurts an English eye.
