For the second time, but now animated. The first time the logo was pulled after a few hours, probably due to copyright issues.

Still can see the "non-animated" version, and it is under 2011 path :)

I tried to modify the URL from 2010 post pointed by Websonic.nl with '2011' but it doesn't work (The requested URL /
logos/calder2011-hp.png was not found on this server.). Thanks George.

Hebbet modified my earlier post.

In response to Juha-Matti's post, I had intentionally omitted the "http" so that the url would be shown and not the image. It compared the 2010 and 2011 urls. The 2011 image was already in the thread and the 2010 one was almost the same.
