Not the first day.. it's been slow for a while now.

Took me over a day to get TF2, had to keep restarting the downloader and given up trying to get the linux server for the minute.

Thanks for the tip!!

'Junior' has just changed his regional settings and the games are now coming in @ 1.6MB/s (normal).
Prior to the change (previously on London UK), they were flooding in @ ~600kB/s.
'Junior' also mentioned that some games were not available in certain territories, but he's able to get the games he requires.

Excellent tip!

Can't see it here anyway. Got it on my wishlist.

Got plenty loaded, so not too much of a hurry.
