Having the same data anywhere in the world on the same day would
mess it up.  So that is why I suggested the HFEST-dda where dd
is the day and "a" is the serial number to be unique.

And I don't think we should have such adevertisements on for
more than a month.  So day-only should do nicely.   If one is on
the 1st of july, then it should not be posted until after the
1st of June... Etc..  Though, I would wait till maybe 3 weeks
before so people wont just think it is a day old symbol that
someone forgot to remove.

Even if they are around the world, if you tell people to go see
it on FINDU.COM, then half the time, they would not see yours
but would see the one in China...
