Do we have anyone at Yahoo! that could write something up for us? 
Yahoo! must without doubt be one of the biggest feathers in 
FreeBSD's hat.

I know that runs FreeBSD. It would be nice to have 
something from them that shows that BSD can handle massive SQL 
databases for those that like that. I know that a lot of people for 
some reason turns to linux/MySQL when it comes to databases. Showing 
that a project like with their huge databases uses 
FreeBSD should convince atleast some people to take another look at BSD.

Does anyone know anyone inside Yahoo! or
