Well limits were just droped since we are close to school starting again.

Well netscape corp screwed me with politics and listed me in their mirror 
listings. Well there used to be more mirrors but it seems that we are one 
of three listed now. And until beta 5 or release version are out I can 
not get out of their list. And I can not remove their software until this 

So for now please use a mirror. Or get the files during the day when 
there is fewer users.

The question of the existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold
them is left as an exercise for the reader.  The question of the
existence of the reader is left as an exercise for the second god
coefficient.  (A discussion of non-orthogonal, non-integral polytheism
is beyond the scope of this article.)
