A couple of weeks ago or so I meet up with Illiad at the Linux World Expo
in San Jose.  I talk to him in person about mentioning NetBSD in his
excellent UserFriendly comic strip, and handed him a couple of the NetBSD
badges (gold & silver) I had made for my company.  (He like the badges.)

Hopefully the cool NetBSD badges will inspire him to put it into his strip.
At the very least, he can get the correct spelling of NetBSD from them.
