I’m in the middle of installing the MacTeX-2007 distribution on my iBook. The compressed disk image is almost 750 MB, and when I started the download I didn’t even think about it taking a long time. And it didn’t.

I started with a 300 baud modem and thought it was great when I upgraded to a 1200. My first hard disk was 20 MB. And I walked 10 miles to and from school in the snow. Uphill both ways.
