came back from a long trip, and decided to update
my portable platform and the programs. turned out
i needed latest version of platform, plus 22 updates
fine: platform went smooth, restarted, and then update
of the 22 progs - and the whole thing went into a
crawl - took just about 2 hrs to update the set.
and i DO have a fast (1600 kb/s) aDSL line, that
fairly constant delivers 1200-1400 all the time,
but certainly not this time.
the highest i got was 240, but the average was hovering
around 40-50 - never seen this before. roughly 1/30th
of what i am used to.
have i done something wrong? is there a trick to get
normal download speeds? 2+ hrs for updating a portable
setup of just under 1 GB is unbelievable.
would appreciate some comments on this.
