Just catching up on the backlog of emails. Thank you all for

@Arnt . . . Thanks. Very good point. I have gone online from a live CD
many times and never given it a second thought! Duh! I just talked to
fsr and I will add that info at the very top of the live-iso install
guide as "Security alert". BTW, he of course knows about this, has
often advised users as you suggest and is even in his documentation
elsewhere. :)

For those of you who might not know . . . chillfan (aka dev1fanboy) has
written nearly all of the install, update, upgrade documentation for
Devuan. plasma (formerly NewGnuGuy) also helped with the editing of
these pages that were originally put together for inclusion on the ascii
isos that use the debian-installer. Now, fsmithred has prepared the
desktop-live content. This is a great team!!
