" but took far longer than my past experiences."


I would say that we need to be fair here, and acknowledge that there used to
be no such thing as a "utility update" in the past. The two manuals that had
to be transferred to (probably) thousands of Stata 11 users last night, [D]
and [R], "weigh" a cool 23 MB combined. With many simultaneous requests, I
can understand that network infrastructure would be struggling to deliver
this volume of data fast. Comparisons with updates for -version- 10 and
prior are hence terribly skewed in favor of the past...

I did and it succeeded eventually, but took far longer than my past
experiences.

Good to know I wasn't the only one though.

Cheers,
