RE: Upgrading LDM to 6.6.2

I don't want to get too far behind so I might switch over on one backup box

I forgot about the no support for really old versions.  That's a good point.

Also, I forgot the most important one we've been talking about:

5. Bad date stamps on products. This can be intermittent or full-time. 
Check your directories. If you see ones with bad dates on need 
to upgrade.

If you aren't bitten by these 6+ bugs, I'd leave it up to Steve to give 
the final nod. But remember,
