How times change – the following is taken from some installation notes dating only back to around 2000:
“Depending on the features installed on your host server, the e-Work web update could be as large as 20 MB in size. Please consider the time required to perform this download, and the impact on available bandwidth within your organization. To minimize impact on others, it is recommended that you perform the web update after normal business hours.”
20MB for an update seems quite small these days – I certainly wouldn’t be worrying about when I should download it. I’m currently downloading a 270MB installation file, I doubt thats slowing anyones network connection down much.
