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
