I'll speak to Mike about it. Frankly, NetBSD has a fairly small role. In
a set of events with 1800 volunteers, and 600 athletes, Mike is probably
the only person who knows what NetBSD is :-)

I think all the organizations listed under Friends of the Games made
financial contributions, supporting athletes to get to the games, or supplying
money or resources to run the games. For example, the servers are Winddance
Networks (now COVENTUS) Breeze servers, loaned for the games, but you won't
find those names on the list either.

I just thought it would be nice, for anyone catching coverage on TV, or in
the news, to be able to say "NetBSD was providing connectivity there...".

I also thought Mike deserved some praise, in a forum of his peers, for his
efforts around the games.
