thank you so much

but i do agree with that other guy that there is no point in putting stuff 
on the update channels that cant even be ran yet becuase it uses packages 
that we can not get it makes no sence what is gained by having it out there 
just to make people have to type some more tags on there update command 

anyone know some where that i can comment on this to a dev
