...discounts & downloading

Today, I recieved my long awaited Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. For some reason, when I first ordered Windows 7 (Home Premium version) it came as a 32 bit version. I was sure I clicked the shiny 64 bit button so I called up Windows and explained my problem. They said it was a mistake of shipping and they were sorry, and they offered me Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit for £20 (a £50 discount and then a further £20 student discount).
I purchased it and today, it came in the post. I've installed it on my computer as a fresh installation so I backed up the files I needed, deleted my current Windows partition and made a fresh one in which I installed my new Windows. So far, I have noticed an increase in speed of the 64 bit version and the way Windows handled the files, also Ultimate comes with a lot more features than Home Premium which will come in handy for me later.

However, only after deleting my old Windows and indeed the Windows.old folder did I realize that all my old programs are missing. So I went and re-downloaded my most important ones, Adobe Creative Suite Web Premium and it's taken about 30 minutes to download. After that, I realize that I need so much more programs that I use on a normal basis and, oh lord, they're gonna take forever to download.

Oh well, better get to clicking.
