    Yeah lucky for us whose work PCs are on T1s and T3s, and who have broadband for home use.

    Can you imagine a poor dial-up Windows PC? Must take all night for some of these updates (and I really wonder how dial-uppers upgraded to SP2)...

    That one was about a 6 hour affair...done twice, actually (after a re-format about a month later, unrealted to SP2) before I had the sense to order the CD for future use.

    For me, the big service pack quietly downloaded a bit here and a bit there every time I was online for about two weeks (I tend to be online at least an hour a day)... and then one day it suddently announced that it had it all and was ready to install it. I hadn't even been aware it had been stealing my bandwidth all that time.

    Copied it from our admin server at work to a USB thumb drive and brought it home. Those things are handy!! [​IMG]
