Uggg...rebuilding my system from scratch
 
Yesterday I remortmatted my system and reinstalled Windows.

Iíve been having issues with Windows not updating and tried every troubleshooting method I could find and nothing would get it past a reboot loop, so I blew out the partition and reformatted and reinstalled from scratch with the latest Windows 10 1903 iso image.

But here I am, trying to download the updated installers for all of my software. Iím downloading on three separate computers with three separate internet connections: our satellite internet, my cell phone hot spot, and my Verizon hotspot. Average download speed is about 100kb/s. The fastest one is my cell phone hotspot which varies between 150 and 250 kbps.

Between Protools, the Avid plug-ins, Waves Mercury, the Slate Bundle, and all my other plugins, and other audio software, Iíll be lucky to be back up and running by the end of the weekend. Itís a good thing I donít havenít any projects on the stove right now.

This is the reason that Cloud Collaboration will never work for me. Those of us who live out in the sticks are 20 years behind the rest of the country when it comes to internet access.

But it sure would be nice if the software packages that Avid posts werenít multi-GB bloatware monstrosities.

Holy cr4p! So; Oklahoma, not okay..?

Here, in Down Town Clown Town, Hollowland EU, I pay 60 Äuro bucks monthly for the 2nd cheapest bundle of digital TV, radio, landline telephony and internet via cable.

I get stable download speeds up to 250Mbps. I just downloaded and reinstalled all my (30+) -updated- PA plugins in less than thirty seconds.

I feel for you.

Weíre at the very end of the phone line system. Miles away from the nearest fiber link. No cable TV system out here. Unfortunately no company will invest in the infrastructure to get a high bandwidth connection to us when weíre the only ones out this far. Iím probably 4 miles from the cell tower. 1, some times 2 bars of 4G cell service. Things will pick up after midnight when the data cap for the satellite connection gets removed.

Same here brother, country life. I usually go to town if I need a bunch of something downloaded

I always keep backups of installers and every time I do what you did, I truly see which plugs are my favorites

And some never get installed again

When time and life permits I will have my studio here in the same sticks (not that far out, but far enough not to have home internet) and that will be the selling point

ďGet away and focus on the musicĒ

Yep, Iíll definitely be slimming down some of my unused plugins, mostly the free ones that arenít as stable. But I do use stuff from Mercury and Slate and Avid bundles, plus Metric Halo, iZotope (Exponential). All big downloads. Plus I have a bunch of other software I have to get to get fully set up.

I usually keep downloaded files also, but I needed to update a bunch of stuff so I had to download them all fresh. The town that I love outside of (Chouteau) doesnít have any such thing as free internet in a cafe or coffee shop. Iíd have to drive an hour to Tulsa to get there, and then itís just not that great of service. I used to download stuff at work, but since I left the City I donít have access to their super fast internet any more.

Good luck, man! Hope you get it all up and running in good form! Upgrade to Win 10 they said. It'll make life easier, they said! :p

Living at the corner of 14th and Plumb, (14 miles out, plumb in the middle of nowhere) I do the same thing.

It is a whole lot less pain thata way.

Of course now they are building millennial castles in the corn fields around me, so it wonít be long before we have cable and MCHSI.

I went to college at the University of Tulsa. We had a whole marching band show designed around Living on Tulsa Time and Take Me Back to Tulsa. So glad I have never had to play those songs since.
