What's the deal with these big demos... I'm in Melbourne, Australia and my cable provider caps my downloads at 3Gig per month - which, when demos and stuff are this HUGE, really limits what I can look at. Are people in other countries similarily limited?

Reading through the posts here I still haven't been given a good explanation of tics/sec (hZ)

My impression of it is


Do (60 times per second)

Get user input
Calculate AI
Physics
...etc
put screen in buffer to be displayed
}

Is this right? and if so, what's everyone complaining about?

In my opinion, the only thing that iTunes has going for it (as compared to wmp) is it's nice online music store, which is far superior to anything I've seen before. Unfortunately, purchasing music online doesn't particularily excite me. Beyond that, their interfaces are on a par with each other, and wmp seems to provide options that allow you to search for album information (complete with pictures, reviews and band information) better than iTunes. I dl'd iTunes as soon as I heard that it had been released for wintel, expecting something fantastic, given that everyone with a mac raves about it, and I was dissapointed.

You have a prayer from me, and all the good thoughts I can offer. Best of luck during this tough time.
