    I'm trying to download it but but perhaps rather predicatably it's timing out when I attempt it.

    I've got it now, it looks like the Mac App Store doesn't like traversing our firewall. Connected the Mac to our DMZ and it rocketed along, about 5MB/sec. That'll save a little time tonight!

    I can use Quicktime X and record a screen cast of it downloading in real time ?

    I don't get paid till friday so won't be able to buy it until friday though, sigh

    CCC or Super Duper to make a backup though unless anyone else has a better suggestion / idea for making a bootable backup of my current installation ?

    I've got it installed now... it seems OK. Not an awful lot different from Snow Leopard at first glance apart from the transitions. There is one thing that's driving me mental though! I have a Magic Trackpad. They've changed the two fingered scrolling behaviour, it's been reversed. FFS I'm trying to browse a webpage, not fly an aeroplane! I can't see a way to change it back either. Harrumph. The iOS style autocorrect has the potential to be useful or annoying too, not sure which yet!

    /edit seen the thread in the Mac forum and changed the scrolling behaviour. They've removed the three fingered navigation gestures! How annoying!

    Started my download off at 7:30 last night, it finished at 5:50 am this morning. Won’t be installing it on my MacBook pro yet, going to try and get it to go on my white old one first have a play and test it out.

    The upgrade isnt free normally but if you did purchase your macs recently i think you can get the update free.

    cheers, who would we speak to, just our reseller?

    PS. Sydney's wet weather | We're already drenched and it's not over i think you made a good choice with queensland!
