Calm down.

I get the binaries and sources loaded either by writing them on dozens of
floppies, or by writing them to QIC-150 tapes (since my home system now
has a tape drive).  If there isn't even one single system at the UW with
both an Internet connection and a floppy drive, perhaps you can get someone
to make up a set of floppies (IF you can manage to ask more politely than
your message did).

I'm months behind on -current, and probably won't upgrade till I get my next
disk drive, so don't ask me.
