1. If you like OpenBSD: BUY EVERY CD RELEASE. It is far the most easiest way to
keep up the volume, and donate regulary to the project. It will look nice in
your shelf, you will get a warm fuzzy feeling, and if don't you have enough
room yourself, give it away.
2. If you just like OpenBSD a little: Buy one CD, and then upgrade the rest of
your life. You will of course run into the risk of suffering of bad
