    I advise downloading the combo update to minimize problems. It made a difference for me with 10.2.4

    No problem installing.
    The Automatic Update Check was put back on again, though.
    No issues yet!

    Re: Gettin' it

    Actually I think that's about the same size at the 10.2.4 update which was 40 as well.

    or maybe not



    Anyway... I hope this fixes my date problems and refrains from leaving me any new surprises.

    After I installed the update it swapped my monitors: left went to the right and vice versa. A quick visit to the preferences pane fixed it though.

    I was hoping that the code contained some hybrid mutative soft genome that would "grow" dual 970's in my dual 1.25 box. >sigh< One can dream...

    yup. it s nice it has been published. Just one remark. What the hell has the apple server got for connection. A friend of mine got about 600 kb sec ! thats so cool. With some thousand people downloading the update, the server is still able to send 600 kb to one user...
    :D :confused: so cool ;)

    Just installed it on both of my titaniums and i am using airport without a base station and now all websites load. If somebody else had the problem where sherlock didn't work or sites like macrumors didn't load, that is now fixed. I also noticed that my range is up for airport. Also i heard people haveing battery problems before this update but i haent' noticed any differnce in my battery life. But this actually seems to be a very useful update.

    kb=kilobit KB=KiloByte mb=megabite MB=MegaByte
    600kb is actually very little. Thats less than 10 x 64k modem. 600KB is more than halv a MegaByte. The most I have got with my connection is 1.2 MB/sec (MegaByte).

    The apple downloads always goes superfast :) I love them!

    Fear of Apple Updates

    I want to update badly. I have high expectations of this little boost to fix all the problems 10.24 introduced, but I promised myself I'd wait to see that 10.25 doesn't bring other users to their knees. Please, I beg of everyone, post any issues, no matter how small.

    The most I ever got with a 64K modem was about 56-58kb second. One of us is obviously on crack :).

    One word: AKAMAI.

    Basically, Akamai has tons of servers all over the place and they route your connection to the closest server.

    A Couple Things...

    First - as for the updates, the one I can notice right off the bat is connecting my mac to the Windows machines in my office. SMB connections are at least twice and quick, and the response over the network is as if the network drives are local to the machine. That beats the tar out of doing it in 10.2.4.

    Second - Apple's servers are on akamai.net's backbone, which is an OC-12 line (or multiple of those... I dunno...) That's the equivalent of roughly 50MB/sec (that's BYTES, not BITS) line speed per line, distributed among multiple download servers. The faster your line speed and number of simultaneous connections, the faster you can download.

    I've got a cable T-3 connection, and can repeatedly download from them a cool 3 megabits/sec uninterrupted. That's pretty quick for things like this. My download took approx 3 minutes, with another 3 for optimization.

    Why man? I was so on my way to rip this guy apart with my extreme kb-KB knowledge :p

    I first quoted the wrong dude so I couldn't rememeber if he wrote 60 or 600kb :)
