I paid the 7 dollars...

I ended up paying the 7 dollars for a FP subscription and I do have to say it did download alot faster. First I was waiting in the queue and I was in the queue with 45 minutes remaning for about 3 hours. After that I decided to just buy a damn subscription and download high speed. I selected the "choose server for me automatically maximum download" option on file planet after I had subscribed and it downloaded at roughly 400~450. Took about 5 and a half hours to download the whole thing on Qwest DSL.
Bottom Line: If you want to play it right away, pay the 7 dollars, and start it downloading before you go to work, it will be done by the time you get home.
And yes I know its just the beta...but I can be very impatient sometimes.
EDIT: I have heard people saying that the queue gets messed up or that the high speed download isn't high speed. My experience was that yes, the queue does get jacked up, I was running it in Firefox and eventually just got a "can't load the page" error. I then fired it up in IE and installed file planets little download manager program to do the actual download, of course even with that I was stuck in queue hell til I upgraded. Please note, I am not encouraging anyone to sign up for a file planet subscription, I'm just telling all the other impatient people out there how I went about getting it. Also, I think this goes without saying but, if you know someone that has already downloaded it, or have a friend that wants to download it, just copy the folder that it creates over to their computer via thumb drive or external hard drive.
