I presume that you are writing to me, not Mark.  Yes? 

Hmm ... if so then we share a common problem.  I have done all my
downloads over a 56kb connection that realises a measured 44kb, at
best.  I lamented to this list recently that downloading the three
K12LTSP ISOs took around two weeks, all connection perturbations
considered.  Since then, using rsync to keep up to date cuts that time
considerably.  It depends on the degree of changes between versions, but
it can cut the download to a couple of days instead of a couple of weeks
;-).  I strongly recommend rsync, but look to my previous posts that
point to a Wiki with warnings about big file transfers. 

As to sending on some copies of the CDs: I'm not really in the business
of doing that, but *can* consider it (on a cost recovery basis) if you
send me your details direct - rather than to this list.  Anything to
help the K12LTSP effort - though you can also request the CDs from
them.  Let me know off list.
