Those times were on saturday.  I'm running md5list right now, and just
finished blanking the CDRW.  The image I prepared last night didn't
work because the silo stuff is broken in slink_cd 1.10 and 1.11, it
mounted the old image and installed silo on the new one.  I'll mail
you a patch for all of the silo woe as soon as this new image is built
and burned.

I don't have a cdimage account.  For the pre1 images I just gave Phil
Hands a rsync address and password.  Whoever transfers these new
images to cdimage, should copy the old ones into the place for the new
one and then do an rsync with a large block size.
