This is a HUGE file. The wiki info on the 8.2 upgrade says it may take 20 minutes to download the new OS to a USB from the internet. Here, it took about 23 hours. Really. And it took multiple attempts because we have inconsistent power/ connections (so having 23 hours of uninterrupted connection time is rare!)

I know we have slow connections here, but I imagine there are similar problems in other places that are trying to use the XOs. Is it possible to have future upgrades shared in smaller files (more of them, so if a connection falters, you don't loose everything and have to start from the beginning?)

Because we are in Fiji, and because it is the holiday season, folks are not showing up for work. So that broadband connection for the library is not yet up... hopefully before Christmas!
