Thanks for the better bug report and defining the download policy. However, I
am running on dial-up here and found it nearly impossible to download git
regression testing... well maybe after 48hrs of leaving my computer run at
26kbps but that isn't overly practical lol.

Also, I contacted Throwback Entertainment personally and they never game me any
verifiable evidence that they own the rights to the game, other than "we own
teh rights". The internet page which makes the blunt statement seems to have
also gone offline recently. I wonder about their validity. 

I'll see if I can't report things a bit better in the future. Thanks for your
time. :D
