A dialogue at startup that could warn of any known major problems or 
otherwise display a tip or season's greeting might be attractive, but it 
should definitely not be enabled by default since it could be 
interpreted as a "phone home" that enabled the project to monitor 
Lazarus users.

Something like RSS might have a place here, but in any event startup 
shouldn't be delayed if connection can't be made.
