    I miss how the artwork and stickers used to be. I liked it better when the stickers didnt have a "theme" to them, and they just had a plain old logo or graphic to them. with the artwork, Im personally only interested in the old puffy or daemon head (although I admit the cop from 2.5 is bad ass)

      i was always a big fan of the cop myself

      2.5 was the first release i tried to install too .. i think ... hard to remember

        Same here, 2.5 was my first OBSD install. I have a daemon cop shirt around here, somewhere. Everyone is always really impressed with it, especially non-computer types who can't stand geeky shirts. Although I must say that the OBSD polo is cool for going "geek incognito," although it did piss off a Linux dweeb that interviewed me once. On second thought, that's not a bad thing!

    I live about 3 blocks from the location in which everything is shipped from in Calgary. I have swung by there a few times to pick up a few items (to avoid the pointless shipping). Trust me - there is absolutely no shortage of stickers. StatiK76

      Trust me - there is absolutely no shortage of stickers.

      Maybe they will put them away, to increase the rarity. And then one day, when OpenBSD stickers are traded on the World markets, like Gold and Platinum, those stickers will be sold at their artificially inflated prices to make the OpenBSD project a fortune!

      It's the perfect crime!!

      Hmmm, maybe I should buy up all these stickers now, then make my fortune, buy truck loads of Microsoft stock, watch as everyone else sells their Microsoft stock (to make their profit) and then while the price is down I will sell all my stock, to kill Microsoft!

      Yeah. Buy buy buy!!

      That is sad, then, because I received NO stickers with my OBSD3.4 CD set, preordered months before the release...

    From it's appearence on the OpenBSD site, it would seem you can still order the CD sets anyway, I could be wrong of course, anyone know ?
