I have a few machines up myself:

1.0ghz Athlon
1,3ghz Duron
450mhz dual Xeon
450mhz Pentium II
166mhz Pentium MMX
110mhz Sun SS5
40mhz Sun IPX
Sun 3/80 running the Mac68k client

I would run it on my Sun Ultra 5 as well, but the client bails out with
"bad system call" as it was probably compiled for 32bit and I'm running
64bit.

Re: RC5-72

We're doing pretty good so far.  We moved up from 1012 to 796 in a matter of 5 days,
but more clients are always welcome :)

If anyone needs the password to check team participants' stats, feel free to email
me or Michael Graff.

advocacy material update

Hi all,

I'd like to make a call for help to update our advocacy material
available at http://www.netbsd.org/gallery/advocacy/.  The flyers and
posters could use some serious updating, I think.

We would need somebody with Corel Draw 10 to edit/update the first
poster.

Or, if you have oideas or suggestions for new posters, flyers etc...

Thanks,
-Jan

printed guide

Hi all,

LinuxWorld '04 is coming to NY in January, and I'd like to have
available bound copies of the NetBSD Guide for sale at the booth.

(a) What needs to be done to get the Guide into a presentable shape,
what sections need updating etc?

(b) Does anybody here know a place where one can print and bind the
guide for little money?

Thanks,
-Jan

t-shirts, once more

Hi all,

LinuxWorld '04 is coming to NY in January, and I'd really, really,
really like to have T-Shirts available to sell at the booth.  We now
have about 2 1/2 months left to decide on a design, choose a place to
print them etc.  Surely, that should be enough, but we need to get this
ball rolling, I think.

As mentioned before, even though cafepress seems cheap, we may not want
to use them as reportedly the colors fade easily.  Anybody know of any
other places?

-Jan

That's a good idea, Jan.  If we charged $10 for a wire-bound manual and a
CD, how many do you suppose we could sell?

I think they would go well.  If we provide free CDs as usual, with no
frills, and in contrast a really good printed manual and a CD maybe in a
small case or at least a sleeve (possibly with a printed label?), I'm
sure that people would be happy to pay.

Also, manuals without CDs would sell well, I would guess.  Hard to
estimate, but at _least_ 20-30 or so.

Anybody here ever sell printed manuals at a show who might have better
numbers?

However, the guide currently talks about NetBSD 2.0, so if 2.0 is not
out by mid January, would it be wise to sell the guide in that
``edition''?  (Actually, I think that's ok.)
