ANN: stuffed plush fred

Hi devels,

as we do not have a -users list yet, I post this to -kernel in the hope, to
reach all, that are interested.

I have a soft spot for stuffed mascots of free OSs and programming
So i contacted Steiner, and asked for a stuffed mascot for DragonFlyBSD.
And just today, they shipped me the prototype of Fred.

Fred was designed following [1] and the two comic variants by Joe Angerson
(archived on -bugs, one of which has been adopted as icon).

I attached two small (low resolution) snapshots of him, but you can see him
on more pictures on [2] (soon).

The dragonfliy is about 27 cm (which should be about 11 inch) long and its
wingspan is about 33 cm (13 inch).

I welcome everybody, who has interest in a stuffed Fred, to contact me.
This will NOT be a contract whatsoever. I just want to know, how many i will
have to order. I will not make any profit out of this, so this will not be
very expensive.

Even though you might live on the other side of the globe, contact me. 
We might find someone honorable (say, e.g.: Matt ;), which I can send all
Freds to, and which will redistribute them further.
This will hopefully reduce shipping cost.
