Abysmal?  Perhaps a bit harsh.  The Sun logo was hand written
postscript and I did the first SPARC Cluster and made a logo that was
4 interconnected Sun logos in the same shape, I can probably dig it up.

I think it was more weird, reminded me of Forth (also weird).  But you
could make stuff work in it.
