Express delivery

I was going to post yesterday, but I had to download my birthday present. It is Corel Paint Shop Pro X, and it's 104Mb in size. You don't realise how big a computer program is until you download one over the internet through a telephone line at 4 kilobytes per second. Don't anybody tell me that Broadband is quicker - I know it's quicker! But I have to get a WiFi card before I can get connected up, because my computer is too far away from the phone socket.
It took about eight hours to transfer the program. I didn't want to do anything else on the net, because that might have slowed it down - or buggered the whole transfer up, knowing my luck.
Note to self :- Next time I download something of a similar size with the current set-up, I'll set it going last thing at night, so it downloads while I'm sleeping.

Hi, this has almost nothing to do with this particular topic but I was wondering if someone could help me. I’m doing a little bit of research on the optical sector and wanted some help with the following question, and just wanted to know how the following four things affect the running of an optical business.

What are the political, economical, social and technological effects on the optical business…

If you could please e-mail replies to, ant help is appreciated. Thank you
