I just didn't want the team to forget us. Dial-up is my only option at this time, except DirecTv which is to expensive. DSL is coming, I think. I said this somewhere before, I would hate to know I lost everything and had to start over from a 2007 CD. It's not the little kinks in the upgrade that would bother me, it would be the download time. I don't currently have a DVD drive but plan to get one soon. I'm not sure what is on there but it would be nice if there were a LOT of distfiles stored on there since they have a lot of room on them. A regular update would be nice too. Twice a year, around February and again in July or August would be nice. I mention that in case there is a gcc upgrade or some other huge fix. Even the *.1 version being the second version would be cool. These are just thoughts. Dale :-) :-) :-) -- gentoo-releng@l.g.o mailing list
