I buy the CD's every time as I want to have a material reminder of every
release.  Thanks for pointing out the donation link it made me realize
that deraadt too takes paypal, so I don't need to shift to paypal'ing
the foundation, as I'm sick of doing bank transfers.

As far as the USB stick goes, I think it's a good idea, I'd buy it but
if it's too much effort and cost then don't worry about it.
