And of course, as expected. I just went to try the mingw-builds, and downloaded their recommended installer (the download button on the front page), and when tried to run it, it didn't work (couldn't download repository.txt or some such). We really need a build that "just works". (I know, your builds didn't have any installer, and if I am willing to live without the installer for your builds, I can just directly download the appropriate package from the mingw-builds site and unpack it, but there is something anoying about trying the recommended way of doing things and not getting it to work that kind of pushes me away from the whole thing)

I used your builds too. I dont remember why, probably cause it was the first one I found that just worked. I'll give the mingw-builds a try.
Thank you for your work.

Sad to see your builds depart!  (But glad you're staying ...)

Now, I'm sure them mingw-builds builds are fine, and such, but where's a
fellow to go when he wants a nice, WACKY build?  Hmm?

You know, like a fine wine -- maybe a bit off the beaten path, quirky, even,
but a worthy vintage, nonetheless.

Thanks for all your work and all your builds.
