I don't have high speed access at home.



Apple doesn't add a link to it on their web site.



I have DSL at work and could have downloded it and run it tonight.



But no.



Only idiots think that 100% of Mac users have broadband...guess Apple is.



Oh, the reason I started a new thread about this is because of the moron who posted his entire kernal panic record in the other...close it if you like...

    I can't comment on the rest of your post, but that long post over in the other thread was the bom listing of the installer (as Brad alluded to later), not a kernal panic.

    Oh gosh, can't get your update for a few more hours, waah waah waah.



    Will it kill you to wait another few hours for the standalone installer to be posted on the net?

    Artman I'm glad you started a new thread 'cos the other one is only for people with highspeed lines!

    :cool:

    Seriously, if you're gonna post a bom listing, please forewarn in the subject line (mods).

    F***ing modem near melted and SBBOD!



    Thanks

    I have the same problem (modem at home), and long downloads tend to get interrupted or broken for some reason. I am told by my ISP that on older phone lines, signals may degrade, and the server may think I am no longer active, therefore it cuts me off. I tried unsuccessfully to download 10.2.3 three times before giving up, and usually don't try downloads bigger than about 10 Mb.



    Can I download the 10.2.4 Combo .dmg at work on my pc - save it to a disk, and then download it at home on my Mac?



    If so, can somebody please give me a step by step on how to do this? How do I do it so my Mac can recognize it and open it? Do I have to format the disc on my Mac first (perhaps a Toast Data cd for both Macs and Windows?) then copy the .dmg to that disc? Thanks in advance for any assitance.

    Doesn't software update have the ability to resume downloads? Obviously, that's not a complete answer, but, it does give some forgiveness to dial-up users. Hey, they could have let these updates trickle out over the next few 10.2.x instead of all at once. Would have helped dial-up users and Apple's servers, but they chose this instead.

    Yup. I did that with the iMovie update. Resumed it a couple of times. Damn dial up though! It is a pain in the arse. It sucks living in a broadband-oriented world having to use dial-up. Then again, that is what my iPod and TCU's Macs in the library connected to a high speed connection are for.

    I know this is off subject but maybe it's time for the Government to step in and push to connect the whole U.S. with highspeed broadband.

    Come on you guys with dial-up <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" /> get with the times and get yourself some high speed connection action going on. At any rate stop whimpering about it!

    Hey, maybe they live where you can't get broadband! Ever think of that?! I am, unfortunately, out of range for DSL, but I can get cable. I would have prefered with DSL, but at least I am lucky enough to get broadband at all.

    I see a lot of people on here talking about broadband issues. One question, has anyone on here got one of those satellite connections? Does it work well? To those people out of range for DSL connections, I am sorry. I hated dial-up too when I had it. I have always been curious about how well the satellite system worked. Hopefully someone can give insight into it and maybe helpout those Mac users who can't get DSL yet. Good luck.

    Rats! First time post didn't make it to the board, so here it is again:



    I'm currently using a PC, but may switch to a Mac later this year. In anticipation, I'm tracking down utilities and burning them, with my PC, to CDs. I spoke with one of the Apple dealers here in my city, and he said it wouldn't be a problem.



    Just download what you want, via your work PC, and burn it on a disk. Take it home, pop it in your Mac and as long as the file extensions are recognized (.sit for example) everything should work fine.



    Can't really test this out on my PC only system, but the dealer said I could burn a variety of setup and compressed files on a CD, bring them into the store, and he would demonstrate that they can be loaded (using the same CD) on to a Mac.



    I'd be interested to see if anyone else can offer some experience about this.

    Well, I was hoping to DL the update and bring it home. But, don't stress too much. I used it on my work machine for an hour and didn't really see any difference. Maybe I'll discover some tomorrow after a full day of use.



    I'm actually a little let down because I can no longer read the 10.2.4 tonight thread.



    When's 10.3 coming.

    Actually you could bypass the whole cd burning thing and just buy a crossover cable and network the two together. Its not very hard, the Apple Documentation does a good job at explaining it. (just remebered, is this a laptop or a desktop? oops <img src="embarrassed.gif" border="0"> )



    If your set on burning cds, just make sure you use the ISO 9660 format when you burn.
