WHY in the hell did you send this file to everyone is BEYOND me.

Next time, ask WHO wants the code, instead of sending it to all
300 some-odd people on the list.   I spent awhile waiting for this
file to download, to find out that it was an off-line builder.

No offense, and this is meant as standing AGAINST your program,
but next time, at LEAST have the courtesy to ask who wants it,
instead of sending it to EVERYONE!.
