iTunes Complete u2 @ 11:19 pm

zoostation:
I'm currently feelin: tired tired

This has probably been asked before, so I apologize beforehand.

With an internet speed of "100 mbps" (near that), how long does it take to download the complete u2 set?
That being said, can you stop the download and then start it up again later?

Many thanks!

Hmm...I'm not sure about the download speed.

More than an hour, less than a day?

But yes, with iTunes, you can stop and start downloads as much as you need.

I really recommend the Complete U2. I had all the albums and junk before, but now with most every single, most every remix, I feel...complete.

Thanks!
I seriously had to consider this thang since it's out of my budget to begin with. But I rad an aritcle about the perks and it suggested that for those people who own a few u2 cds and are guaranteed fans, it's the best thing on the planet. So I figured.
XD
I only have 4 studio albums and the "Best ofs..." So it's probably cheaper for me to buy this than to purchase each cd seperately.

And if you take into account that all of the singles from the 80s are now long out of print, with stuff from the early 90s following close behind; you're missing out on a lot of the mixes/b-sides and rarities by not getting the Complete U2.

I'm currently saving up for it. Loose change leftover from coffee each day. Started 6 weeks ago, and I already have over half the money saved. Damn I drink a lot of coffee.

I'm dying to get it. I just need some more room on my credit card and it could very well be mine!

LOL, I'm forgoing a hefty payment to my credit card so I can buy this with my checking account.

Guess who isn't going anywhere for a few weekends.
:/
So very much worth it though.

It took my boyfriend approximately 4 hours total, between downloading the songs from iTunes and then downloading them onto his iPod. And once you start the downloading you cannot stop.

He has a cable modem (I'm not sure what 100mbps is :S).

Hope that helps!

!! Are you serious?

Well it's been going for a good 40 minutes now and I have 61 songs downloaded.
I'm at work cause the DSL speed at my house isn't so hot.

I have until 5, so I'm relaxed at this point. It's not taking a century like I thought it would.

That's what my boyfriend told me...I guess it'll interupt the download? Good luck with it though! :)

I'm doing great so far. I started at 9:10, it's 1:23 and I have 10 more songs to go.
I did however have a super close encounter that left me ghost white.
If you care to know exactly how to leave me ghost white.

OMG! How stressful!
Did you get it all downloaded? I apologize for any wrong or confusing information...like I said, my boyfriend told me the details. I've never done it myself.
Enjoy! :D
