I'm a little curious why this requires internet access to use the plugins. There is nothing in them that should require internet access as far as information or calculations. I'd like to formally request this requirement be removed as I would like to use this but have kinda crappy and unstable internet where I am. You state that "internet is everywhere" but I would really love to know what planet you live on where that is the case because I'm only 3 miles away from a major town and am lucky to have a microwave uplink.... and that is a fair portion of the US. How much bandwidth does this use? what are you transferring? Details please.
