Thank you for this. Until I got my high speed line, I didn't even think
about updating. It would simply take too long. Consequently, I've not kept
in memory certain things like the file you reference above. Thank you.
(High speed is awesome. I just updated Firefox to 18.104.22.168, or something
similar, and it took only 3 - 4 minutes to down load the 35mb *.bz2 file. I
wouldn't have even thought about it before hand.)
