God Bless You Ulla!

Unfortunately I am not able to download the ISO image. I'm trying since 
yesterday after your announce, but the connection is very pour. Usually 
I download from your html link, and it starts at 1200kB/sec and ends at 
about 600kB/sec. Now it starts at 1,7kB/sec and never ends. But no 
problem, I will wait for the bbos.org mirror update, that looks to be ok.
