    Clicked check for updates in iTunes, was told that 4.0.2 is available.
    Clicked the go-ahead button. When the ETA appeared, it was one hour,
    but I thought, no biggie, bandwidth is low at this location.

    Shortly, it changed to two hours. Then three. So I cancelled,
    and the iTunes blurb changed to "new version, 4.0.2, is available"

    Later, I decided to try the update again. Went into iTunes
    and clicked the button begging me to upgrade to 4.0.2.
    Instead of doing so, the blurb changed back to "you are up to date"
    (with the part above it still saying I have 4.0.1)

    But I can click "check" again and it does again find 4.0.2. and offer
    to install it. Initial estimate was ELEVEN hours, but it meandered down
    to three again (@#$%$^&%^*$%#!!) and eventually down to two.
    Still says two hours (Grr)

    That Mac running the server over Ethernet must be just HOSED!

    Too many assumptions. "Mac" was not mentioned in my post,
    though I am on a Mac. The server is at Apple, so it's probably
    an Xserve (technically not a Mac?), and it may have Ethernet
    or it may be connected to the net with something faster.

    I didn't mention Ethernet, either. It was WiFi, and I suspect
    the WiFi provider may be throttling.

    Even if you do learn to speak correct English,
    whom are you going to speak it to?

    Off hand it sounds like the mirror that is serving you is struggling, or
    you have connectivity problems.

    Either way, your choices are 1) Let it go, see if it finishes on it's
    own, 2) Try again, 3) Jailbreak and install their patch, 4) Leave your
    device vulnerable.

    Eventually, I let it run. It did take about three hours.
