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, 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.)
