(except for the label, of course.)

iirc frank meant it as a sort of stylized audio wave coming from a sound 
source, but you are right, it looks more like a reel.

i love english! :-D -----------------------+

funny you should mention that. i think nobody ever intended a pun. it 
slipped on the page because "linux-audio-dev" became tedious to type and 
read after a while. but why do you think it's aggressive ?
does "LAD" have another meaning except for guy, bloke, chap, etc.?
(i learnt english from books where gay still means happy, so you'll have 
to excuse me here...)

how about "GAL", GNU/Linux Audio Lists ? :-D

no, serious, it's not a good idea imho to let go of the LAD acronym 
since it's well introduced and widely known, but it does not have to 
play a central role here - just "LA" or linux audio is fine.
