What foxes me about this is who, at least in a hard-currency country, is
sufficiently financially mean and yet sufficiently lavish with the brief term
granted us above ground to be prepared to waste the necessary hours either
cloning Linux distributions or combing through pages of auction material and
waiting days for the auctions to complete in order to save 10 bucks? Bizarre.

Pay up, stinge-merchants! Or, if you're really down on your luck, wait a
couple of weeks and install over ftp.
