We don't have any export restrictions now.

Some are faster, some are not.

So what. Even if you stay here, they still have working
stats. The rate of key consumption will not be greatly
affected by the quality of a web page. Don't argue
aesthetics. If an individual is interested in helping
out, they will. If not, a neato web page won't change
their mind.

Less for Project G, which any decent netizen should be
interested in promoting. $1K is enough for a mb, cpu, ram,
video, disk, or printer upgrade, a nice party for the
email team, or a sizeable chunk of books and tuition.
Don't be so greedy.

Except that the keyblocks have not been allocated to the bovine
clients in a linear fashion. I'm really surprised that the C
effort has sprung up at all. Perhaps the secrecy of the bovine
v2 is what forced it. I don't know.
