  We use boost libs to write software for a
  living. We all sit on machines that are
  permanently connected to the internet. If
  it saves three hours of a developer's work

  on something else instead for those three
  hours. <g>
  I find it a PITA to download 4.6MB over
  ISDN from home. But at work, I'd download
  everything "just in case" and look at it
