    No, that is not a bad impersonation of Tattoo on Fantasy Island. It's my voice being added to those who would like a more updated and downloadable client from EA.

    If EA could place a patched copy of the CC and EC on their site about every 6 months, I (and others) would not have to go through hours of patching when rebuilds are needed. Three hours at broadband speed - the only thing running - and my CC is patched from 9AE. Tonight it will be the pain of the EC. <whimpers>

    C'mon EA, is it really all that much to ask for? Please? Oh, the reason for the rebuild is a new, bigger and faster HD. It took less time to patch up Windows XP from SP1 to current than UO patching.

    I never understood why they can't compile a new exe and update the website after a major patch. I wouldn't mind so much having to download a publish if it were small, but the larger ones suck.

    Just about 2 weeks ago I had to reformat my HD because of a corrupt registry. While I was waiting for UO to update I reinstalled all my other software and still had time to sit there and BS with people on ICQ while I waited.

    I have never understood a TON of things that they should be doing or getting right but somehow can't.

    Agreed, its utterly rediculous not to have a downloadable client that is up to date.

    it's almost as if my management from work runs EA ... if it makes sense and drops the gripe levels, it rarely ever goes into production.

    This won't solve your immediate problem but...
    When you do have a fully patched install, make a copy of the EA folder (dvd, another hh, etc). Repeat every few new patches. When next you need to re-install, it'll be a snap.
