If you have a lame ISP, you can ask a friend with a decent one to download the source for you, burn a CD, and post it to you.

I think the export of the code for PGP on paper shows the utility of a paper copy in the face of lame ISP regulations. It's likely that a CD in the post would have been forbidden under te same regulations that prevented other formes of electronic copies of PGP beng exported.
