Last day (Friday) before leaving they gave us a nice heavy beer stein again with the same art. I had all three, shirt never worn, pad only used for limited notes at conference and my immaculate beer mug. Almost 1 year to the day after my wife and I married I heard a crash, a forlorn whimper and the concerned sound of my wife calling my name. Yes, she had broken my carefully preserved mug (into too many pcs. to count). She said she noticed I never used it and thought it was quite cool and should be used. I also have the T-shirts and group or project related shirts -- not unusual for me to come home with a dozen or more -- from the next Apple 10 conferences along with MacApp, un*x, 3D Visuialization, ODP, Siggraph, MacHack, etc... my whole point is that was probably the best swag I got at any of those. I explained to her that I had every intention of using it but wanted to wait a while when it would reach a higher 'cool quotient'. I was not pleased but could not place blame on her because she didn't know the significance.
I also have numerous vendor shirts, Koozies, and free software.
