Yeah, I've known about this for a long while also.  I'll tell you what 
though, Theo would have had at least one more purchase of OpenBSD from 
me if he offered a purchase method that allows you do download the ISO 
same-day.  I just don't have the schedule, organization skills, and 
patience to order a CD a few days before I'll have time to use it :)

Yes, I know I could get a subscription, but I'd still rather just have 
access to download it and make my own ISO when I need it.
