Hey, if you run the 5.01 updater without having booted Quark 5.0, even in OS 9, the software installer takes forever to update. I found this out when I did a clean install of my system a few weeks ago. Thought my computer had frozen after about a 1/2 hour into the 5.01 update, then suddenly it continued.
How about a coffee from 2nd Cup (they have broadband access), a carrot cake AND the Sunday edition of the NY times. That is insane.

They have GOT to be kidding me.
The folks @ Quark are really out to lunch. Good thing our customers are starting to see the light and moving to InDesign. Actually the majority haven't bothered with 5 so this will just put another nail in their coffin I guess.
Several HOURS to apply an update? Its like they don't want their customers to even bother anymore....
