Well shit. Glad I didn't have anything else to do on this computer... </sarcasm>

Doing an update through battle.net for StarCraft II. Don't play it much at all, usually diablo3, but I own it so I thought I'd let it go ahead and update. Big mistake. 16 GB RAM and I should be able to do damn near anything needed. I suspect a combination of Internet Bandwidth (our connection is too slow) and my lame ass stock hard drive (320GB / 67GB free) I suspect is starting to go out in the mini. (Mid 2010)

I'm thinking that maybe I'll get an SSD for it. Clone the current drive, and install it. Made a big difference in my Mac Book Pro.

Battle.net App itself has crashed a couple of times, everything is waaaaaay slow and iTunes keeps freezing up on the Dr. Who Xmas special I'm trying to watch. Unfortunate (I guess) that Battle.net remembers what it was doing upon exit and resumes as
soon as it restarts. Going to let it do it's thing. and then we'll see.

I do (or did) have 4 big downloads (from iTunes) in addition to the one from battle.net going. Need an Internet upgrade for stuff like this. Haven't been able to convince the room mate that I'm not really doing anything out of the ordinary here. So that's out until I can pay for the upgrade on a monthly basis because she doesn't see the point... All she really sees is an increase in the bill. Pretty sure once she experiences a faster connection she won't want to go back, but until then? Meh.

Tech people - Thoughts? Am I off base?
