It's the closest thing to support available for FreeBSD.  There's
nothing else.

I do note, however, that only about 10% of my questions to the list
actually generate useful answers.  The other questions either get no
replies at all, or vague replies that really aren't useful, or pure
guesses.  One gets the impression that nobody really knows anything
about FreeBSD, or, if anybody does, he never replies to this list.

Indeed, the only messages that generate replies are those that suggest
that FreeBSD is anything other than sweetness and light.  Serious
questions about how to use the software are met by a deafening silence
in too many cases.

That's why I say what I do on my Web site.  Anyone thinking of running
FreeBSD in a production environment needs on-site experts to deal with
it, because they'll never get any help from anywhere else.
