It took me a long time to download and apply the patch since I too reinstalled it. It must be a huge patch or something .

Edit: saw Crazy9000 link to the download, only 20 some megs. Maybe the server was just slow then.

Yeah downloading in-game usually isn't very quick. And as said earlier, everyone's probally reinstalling their oldschool starcraft to get the rust knocked off in time for the new one.

I'm planning a Graphics Card and Memory upgrade when Starcraft II system requirements are released.

Did you get your patch to work? I tried the download and the same thing would happen, a read-me pops up and nothing else happens. I tried battle.net and the download just sat there. I have a smoothie set up on my network, did a direct connection from modem to pc and it instantly downloaded. Check for firewalls because battle.net is very particular.

The one on the site doesn't work so you have to find a third party site, best way is just to patch it off b.net, though.
