Developed country (Japan). My wife makes me scrimp on everything, so I still have megabit/sec download. Fiber or 10 Mb/s copper would cost me some JPY1000 a month more, up to about 3500/mo. (Roughly JPY100 to USD1.00.)
So, when I download DVDs, I plan on leaving the download going all day.

But I don't download DVDs because the installer will go to the net for the latest anyway, if you let it. Of course, that means upgrading to Jessy is going to be two days of down time.

CPUs just fancy pens.
All is a stream of text
