If your Squeak machine is not connected to the internet, you may still
want to get the latest Squeak updates. The update
mechanism is basically a fileIn, so you can do it by hand.
1) Go into Squeak, type (EToySystem version) and printIt. Then open a
ChangeSorter and note the highest number you see
as the beginning of a changeSet name.

2) From a machine on the internet, download and save the file

3) Download all files that begin with a higher number than you noted from

4) Move all the file to your Squeak machine.

5) Look at 'updates.list' and find the section that begins with # followed
by your version. It will be near the end of the list.
For each file name that follows, view that file in a FileList and 'file
into new change set'.

That's it.
