    2 hours later and it's still downloading....@ 16% downloaded. I think their servers are creeking with all the bandwidth to push this out, I've read on one website a user had 41 updates totalling 1.46Gb (of which 1.25Gb was for Office 2013). Urgh!

    Yes, but he left out the NSA, CIA, Apple, Amazon, Special Branch, Security Service, Intelligence Service, a news of the World and Mirror Group journalists (whoops, sorry, that was only voicemail hacking), Google .... Etc etc..
