When I started this web site the idea was to make available my Forth like interpreter program, which I call RIPE.

I could not use the domain RIPE since it belongs to someone else. So I decide on RipeTech instread.

 Rapid Interactive Programming Environment Technology

But when I think of the word ripe I often associate it with a old English folk song called Cherry Ripe by the poet Robert Herrick, with music by Charles Edward Horn.

It is amazing what they taught me in primary school around 1961.

So I created a (okay childish, maybe even stupid) logo based on two cherries on a stem.
