The comment, which I might have misunderstood, mentioned a 'mate' that did
not have a DVD drive or Internet access. I was of the impression that this
was a real person not a 'mythical man'. I re ember the complaints when the
CD isos went from 650 to 700. 'It won't fit on my disks'. Now it appears
that some, many?, do not have DVD drives.
