Yes, yes, and what if the core is made of CHEESE?
That's a good looking 3d logo, that.
It's a matter of taste, really, but I think the extrude steps are a bit heavy-looking, so these days I mostly reduce them by typing Ctrl-A, then going to the Font Size field and setting something between 200% and 400%. This expands the x- and y-axis dimensions, but doesn't touch the z-axis (extrusion), so objects look thinner front to back. You then need larger extrude settings to achieve a given thickness, giving you much finer control.
