A few hrs each day for 50 days? What kind of internet connection do you have?  If you can't find other options I'll get you what you need for "a few bucks", just enough to cover postage and what not.

  BODY { font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px; }hey
 i am trying to set up a private network for using freebsd (private
as in off-line)
 i have a windows machine with on-line connection
 i would like to get a hold of the 8.1 CURRENT 'distfiles' (complete
- at least with latest versions only of each port/file)
 however,  when making calculations for downloading the complete
distfiles  directory via anonymous ftp it works out to be a 50 day
operation (a few  hours each day)
 of course there are many earlier version files that may not be
required - in some cases in multiples of tens - which adds up 
 is there a source that makes dvd images of the distfile directory
that i can get a hold of
 if so , please give details - happy to pay a few bucks
