Wow!

Only 4-6 weeks for the standard shipping time - coast to coast.

But that's still probably less time than it would take me to down load it myself.

I wonder if I could drive out to the left coast and pick my copy up...

THANKS PONDERING for the heads-up!

CGM...Your Welcome...it's prolly coming from Washington State. When I ordered the sp1 updates from them they said it would be 4-6 weeks. Knock me on the floor .....I got it in about a week :thumbsup: They say 4-6 weeks so people don't drive them nuts asking where their cd is. I kinda expect mine in a couple of weeks. Last time (3 weeks ago) MS had this sit open, they closed it in less than a day. That is why I gave a heads up on this. Maybe they will take orders until they run out of cd's and shut the site till thy get more


Even if you download it, the cd will be helpful if you reformat.

Disk has some "extras" on it. See link.....................

My SP1 update was produced in Puerto Rico,
shipped to Grove City CA, and resphipped
from Forest Park, GA, via USPS to me.

Though as I recall, I did get it right about four
weeks after ordering it.

Of course I've saved Billy Goats thousands of $$$
as I've shared my CD with many others.
You're welcome Billy.
