Can't you cancel your payment somehow?

Don't order CDs... They're always way out of date. Nowadays I never receive
a new version CD before the next one is out. Anyway, mine is from freebsdmall,
not BSD Mall.

Downloading the base system is only a few hundred MB, and then only install
the ports you need. It's much more ecological.

Wherever there's people making money out of free software there's dishonesty.
