Olivier,

Where I am at, it cost me money for connection. I have to pay for the 
ISP and the phone company. Therefore, I can't stay online for long time 
while I am developing. In addition, It will be  annoying and 
inconvenient to sign-on/off every time I need to validate my css.

The reason that I don't know about cvs is that I was until recently a 
windows user then I switched to Linux. I am sure there are a lot of 
windows' users who don't know what is cvs and even what is Linux.

I can't complain why it is  hard to install the service as it is free. 
Trust me, I will be able to install it. I will install cvs client in my 
box and will go from there.

Thank you?
