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  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.
