Hmm, I think their authors have actually made hand drawn versions of the icon at that size, so a direct resize isn't the best possible comparison... Still, here are 2 more I think are missing from that mix:

(I took 'some' liberties with Seventh's one. It's a variant that was discussed briefly, but never actually made. I do think it's got some merits, though! :) )

Dave, your logos are imaginative and pretty cool too.
BUT they're not scaleable, which is IMHO a looong minus for them.
...and keep it under lightspeed!

I have to agree with Zieman there.
That said, your last logo seems just right as a splash screen! :)

From top: 64x64 first row, 128x128 second row, 256x256 the last one.
Remember, I use the white background for test purposes.

Here's a 64 x 64 image, I might be able to get it down to 48 x 48 but that would probably be the limit. Oh well, worth a try.
