It warms my heart that you think about me (us?) every day,  :-)  But I'd
rather you just sent me a letter saying "Send us your disk #1 from 3.0e
and $300 and we'll send you the basic set of 4.0 binaries".  In fact,
what I'd really like is a letter saying, "Since we want to increase
awareness of our existence and you are operating a system seen by many
college students, we would like to give you a complete set of everything
there is to have in SVR4.0."  AT&T does it (from time to time), and
Microport is more-or-less trying to get back into the market place.  So...
