Yep, that was the one I drew up in Illustrator - thinking 2009 or 2010.

I was originally going to do a flash movie, but, I haven't messed with
flash in years and that project never got started.

I have no idea what's going on, but, the tandycoco.com website is currently
down. Aaron had done some work on the server last week in preparation for
another site enhancement. It was running yesterday, and I wouldn't even
know it was down if not for this thread since I've been avoiding the
Internet this weekend...
