Well, that's interesting.  I was just thinking of dropping you a line
yesterday, but then I thought that I should try PC-BSD first.  Since
you're here though, would you be able to tell me a little about your
installer?  I'm thinking specifically about how it differs from sysinstall
(other than looking pretty) and whether it allows for non-interactive
use, whether you're tried to address architectures other than i386, and
how you deal with upgrades (if you do).  I know that's a bit woolly, but
I didn't get around to trying it out yet.  That's your fault, of course :)

We're a miserable bunch to be honest, but you're welcome and it's great
to have you.

By the way, I will be arranging beer in Cardiff again this year, since
all the other plans fell apart last summer (yes, I know one of them was
mine).  How does everybody feel about July for that?
