A little shy of 10 hours. 

To put that into perspective there are a coupe of PC games I play, the last one I downloaded came in at just over 105Gb and I was able to download that in just over 4 hours.  Banghead
Just staggering that 105GB, and to think once upon a time gamers were satisfied with the size of program you could store on a C90 cassette tape

Well graphics have come along way:

think I prefer the top one

Had a separate issue with another piece of software which I'm convinced is server side rather than on my side as every test I've been able to run has been coming up green.

Tech support's first suggestion: To connect my PC to another network and try again. Genius, because every household has two separate networks with individual t'interweb providers. Banghead

It's a stupid step to take, they gave the bloody thing away free a few weeks ago and it was so popular that the site that was hosting it crashed due to the number of people trying to download it.

Might give that a try once I've got an idea of the data usage.

Good point, I ran through a Gig in no time when the PC decided to back up all my files to the cloud using the iPhone.  Fortunately at that point an auto break kicked in
