DirectX 7.0a SDK in UK

Recommended Posts

Deciphered the abbreviations in the subject? Good, I''ll start. I want to get the SDK in the UK, I have a sh*t connection (28.8Kbps) So it would take over 10 hrs to download the SDK. I have to resort to ordering. (Un?)believably, Microsoft charge $13 to ship out internationally. They claim it is all P&P, I think, but surely they are taking the p*ss. Microsoft are monopolising b*st*rds, no sh*t Sherlock, but I need that SDK big style so I suppose I am going to have to bite the bullet? Please, any other (simpler) solution would be greatly appreciated... Anton LaVey

Just download it at the weekend...

1p a minute * 60 minutes is 60p an hour.

so £6.00 for your 10 hour download. And you can do it in one day. No need to wait for MS to send it to you, and better still, no need to give MS any money :)))

Just make sure you use a download manager such as GetRight as a crash or disconnect at 9 and a half hours is NOT funny :(

Good luck
