FYI, IBP dispatches all of the CDs from the UK. As a recipient in a
far-flung outpost of empire, I can vouch that longest it has ever been from
UK to my isolated residence in outback Australia is 8 days, which is a
feature of Australia Post rather than any slowness in Europe.

Also, IBPhoenix *does* user secure service for credit card
processing....and the website clearly shows Paul Beach as the contact for CDs.

Why couldn't you make up such a CD yourself? Otherwise, who do you think
is going to pay the costs of making up, maintaining and distributing a
cheap CD that costs you $20? To assume that the only cost in a CD is the
cost of the media shows a lamentable lack of understanding of the value of
other people's time.

Or perhaps you think that the Firebird developers should do this for you,
as a gesture of thanks for your benevolence in including their free
software in your products...
