Mmm... yes. Updating the ports tree and everything all at once is
generally a much better idea! You got broadband on that thing yet ?

heh - I cant think of anyone better to be a 5.2 guinea-pig anyway. I
should work excellently on that AP400 I would have thought. Theres no
non-standard hardware on there after all.

Maybe I should come over, and we can have an "installing 5.2" party.
I'll let you know how it goes on mine.
