I just returned from a longer journey to Thailand (or Thai Land)
and found 40+ messages on "Any news of DVDs" in my opulent mailbox...

True. Instead, they would contact VietTUG, the Vietnamese user group:
   email:    kyanh_at_o2.pl
   web site: www.viettug.org
to find/work out how to get the 2005 Collection.

But the instructions are meant as help, not an offence. Instead of
fighting BZ2, or a bandwidth, or other downloading problems, get a copy 
(or another copy, if you lost the first one) from a user group!
