BOL slow download

by abdmal9 / January 4, 2007 12:22 PM PST

Is it just me or has downloading BOL for the past couple of days thru iTunes been really reeeally slow ?

It usually took me like 2 mins and now it takes me more than 30mins.

What ive been doing for the past couple of days is get the mp3 link off podcast.cnet.com and then use FlashGet to leech. Its way faster this way.

I assume you are exaggerating the 30 minutes. My downloads for various podcast including BOL have been normal.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
