Reeaaaalllly..... This is what I get when I take advantage of their savings? Guess there is something to be said after all for having the disc in your hand, eh?

Been having this issue most of the day, guess they are having a good day over at Steam

Have you tried changing servers? Sometimes that helps.  I've also had luck just spamming the download attempt.  Unfortunately, this happens during times of massive demand (like when they have a ginormous sale).  It's one of the very few downsides of the service.

even before the sale I was getting some low download speeds all of a sudden.  once the sale is over I'll need to try other servers to see if that makes it quicker.

After buying a grand total of one game from them ever, I have bought 5 over the last three days thanks to their sale (all under $5!). Just can't pass up some of them... Evil Genius and Rome: Total War Gold and KOTOR and wow. I can see why they're getting hammered.
