It no longer fits on a 4.7GB DVD!

I am not sure what to do about that but thinking of offering it for download from Dropbox or Google Drive.

Switching to a service like that will save time and effort for me and may result in a price reduction for you.  That depends on whether or not I can get more free storage space on one or the other of those services.  You would then will be able to receive the file almost instantly, depending of course on your bandwidth.  If you have a dial-up connection it might take several hours to download.  If you use a wireless service like AT&T, Sprint, etc., you are probably limited to 5GB per month.  You would use all of your monthly bandwidth allocation with this download.

Let me know if you would like to try Dropbox, and contribute to my free storage space by doing so.
