    Must be a slow server. I think it only took me a few minutes. What link/site are you trying from?

    WOW!!! Just tried the link (I used the same one a while back) and I'm looking at 1.5 hours. :( Do you think the server is throttling down the bandwidth?

    Yeah I wonder if for some reason they did dial back bandwidth...it was weird when I first opened it up it was flying...then it just got slower and slower.

    Sorry to joke...but you could probably download Nookie Froyo, copy to sdcard and run it while you're waiting!

    Wife: *!&^^!(^!(%@!)*&!%!!%(^!)!
    Me: Why are you yelling?
    Wife: Because when I talk in a normal voice you don't listen.

    Nookie Froyo...that's an experimental version of Froyo (Android 2.2) that is now working on the Nook Color. You literally put it on a micro sdcard and boot. It makes no changes to the Nook, so once you turn off, pull out, and reboot, it's like it never happened. But it IS experimental, so I'll give it a few weeks...
