I'm looking at the Software Update preferences panel. It says "Check for updates: Weekly". This option is checked. It says "Download updates automatically". This option is checked. It also says "Last check: Sunday, October 12, 2008 1:07 PM". WTF? I guess I'll check manually from time to time.
Second complaint: As it finishes downloading each update, the computer asks me for an administrator password to install each one. Couldn't it download all the updates, then give me a single password prompt at the end? Or even multiple prompts at the end. I don't want to have to sit here and babysit the computer so the two hour download process can complete.
