Whoop .. at last .. I'm able to get updates over a stable SDSL Connection (instead of the not so stable ADSL connection previously in place) thanks to the upgrade that took place at the start of the Easter hols ..

It's wonderful .. the server has been complaining when I've installed the backup software as it's not been fully up to date with drivers and the like, but now, it's just whisking through them .. YEY!

Life seems good for now .. lol ..
