For the most part, fair enough. I do realize that a large part of my
frustration was of my own doing. I'm not at all surprised that I got the
error when trying to install from 7.0-STABLE-200807 as it's fairly old.
But with 7.1-BETA2 I just downloaded and installed from that ISO less than
a week ago. It's not unreasonable to expect it to sill be available,
especially considering the fact that the "Upcoming Release: 7.1 - BETA 2"
link is still on the front page of FreeBSD.org. Now that I'm far enough
along in my install to be able access the site I see the link does now
takes one to a download page with links to ISO images for 7.1-RC1.
