Dear sirs,

Please excuse me if this is somewhat of a dumb question, but I was just 
wondering what the best time in the night would be to sup the current 
sources without going down.  I am using sup over a "term" 
connection, and thus the link is not at all that fast, and it seems that 
when the hours get to become about 7:00 am, always goes 
down, as does  Is this common?  This is my first sup for 
the current sources, which means I need to get the WHOLE distribution 
first, right?  Sup, since it stops due to an unhooked connection, doesn't 
get to right the upgrade files or whatever, so that it knows when it last 
upgraded a set.  Thus, it thinks it has to upgrade EVERYTHING everytime.

So, should I start earlier or what?

Thanks for any help,

Mark Steven de Sagun Tamola
