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.
