Sponsors were specifically asked _not_ to give out clothing, as the
Cisco boxer shorts distributed at NANOG 20 were somehow deemed
offensive and discriminatory.

Don't get me wrong, Beer and Gear was definitely time well spent, I
just found the "gear" aspect (assuming that's in reference to
freebies, not hardware demonstrated by vendors) a bit lacking. ;)

Long live free vendorware.
