PS: To all those who have replied in this thread: please DO NOT ANSWER this
sort of questions about unsupported releases (other than with a reply like
mine). You need to pressure people into upgrading, refusing to answer any
questions about the unsupported release is the best way. Answering the
question doesn't actually help the person who asked, you're helping the
script kiddies instead.
