    The Technet servers are being hammered it seems. I'm only getting 300kbps~ Normally get 1Mb+ on Technet downloads!

    Interupted at 53%, 182KB/sec

    Resumed but it's not shifting

    /Update: and we're off again.
    Faster download at home on my Sky ADSL than on our 100MB Janet connection at work.

    I suspect our servers are getting a hammering tonight!

    But the big fat pipe of the Interwebs appeared to run downhill to Dorset this evening, because Dave Coleman from Twynham School was first in my Twitter circle to have it downloaded from MSDNAA and installed and to get Tweetdeck back on, all before 9pm:

    Is it just me that feels, given the late hour, and given that this could all wait until tomorrow, that this thread is the opposite of the "Do you work in your lunch break?" question on another thread?

    Whats that?

    Another 3% downloaded and it's cut off again
    At this rate, Win7SP1 will be out before I've got it downloaded
