We may not be able to use an image of the BSD Daemon until the fair use policies are in place. --Joshua David Williams 09:11, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

I went ahead and wrote the copyright holder, Marshall Kirk McKusick, to request permission to use the logo.

I, along with a small group of other individuals, are writing articles 
about the mascots of free operating systems for Citizendium.
May we please include a high quality image of the BSD Daemon 
in the article? And, of course, any suggestions you have on the
article would be very welcome. :)

Thank you,

Joshua David Williams

Yes good call. I got burned over at Image_talk:MOS_6502.jpg for making assumptions about image re-use from Wikipedia --Eric M Gearhart 10:24, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

I just received a reply :) See here for permission info --Joshua David Williams 18:34, 13 April 2007 (CDT)

Trident, not Triton.

I think you should correct the name of the implement to Trident. Triton is the name of the deity, and his implement is called a trident. Also, the trident is not quite the same as a pitchfork. A pitchfork is a farm implement, whereas a trident is used by fishermen. -- Jussi-Ville Heiskanen 03:24, 23 February 2008 (CST)
