I have a local mirror and just comment out the cronjob while I want to 
update everything. The ports really don't change that much but when a 
major upgrade such as gnome or KDE is going on, you want all of your 
systems to be running the same set. Once I have packages, I turn the 
cronjob back on. Otherwise, you may find a P-II 350 rebilding something 
very time consuming :).
