I haven't heard much about the badge project recently, but just now on
SlashDot I noticed the following link:

Their pricing <> appears to be a bit less
than what we'd figured, if I'm correctly remembering what we'd figured. A
batch of 500 badges seems to cost sixty cents a-piece, which is to say $300.

I'm willing to put a chunk of change into this, if someone wants to help
with distribution. Ideally, someone will go 50-50 with me on both the
purchase and distribution costs, which we'd then hopefully re-coup if
everyone comes through.

(A smaller batch of 250 costs 162.50, FWIW. This may be a sufficient number.)

I'm personally interested in a plain Beastie image, although if we imprint
"NetBSD" on the bottom, I'd not at all mind.

One last thing to note is that this place is marketing the Tux badge them-
selves. They might be willing to sell NetBSD badges directly as well.

I'll contact them for more information, unless someone else wants to do it.
I'll also contact Kirk, again, if no one else wants to do it.
