The BSD projects should get the lion's share of the thanks.  They work
especially hard to bring us the OS's we love to use and potentially make
our living implementing and administering.  We owe them a debt.  Buy
their CD's, buy their t-shirts, donate hardware, cash, and of course..
beer.  However you can; support them.

Everyone who came out on Saturday to spend the day with us MADE the
conference. We kinda figured there was a lot of BSD usage and interest. 
We wanted to bring everyone out of the woodwork and together to meet and
talk.  I am not sure we at NYCBUG knew how strong the BSD community had
become and how much it has recently grown.  I was pleasantly surprised.

In the future, we are going to continue do our part to promote the
community and advocate the BSD projects.  If you are like-minded, stay
with us.  It only gets better.

And.. thanks for the kind words, George.
