couldn't get the packages to reload when checking for updates this morning. tried the speed test but that failed too. any help would be appreciated.
The repos were probably syncing as Tex has loaded the new 2010.10 ISO's on the servers.
Did you try another repo Jesse813? It's sometimes worth switching to another repo as that may be "free"
