The hoops one has to go through to get the initial patch is just completely uncalled for. The SN for the game, entered through the games GUI, should be enough. Making us register and give you our spam email accounts is just one sure way to make me think twice before purchasing any other games out of this dev shop.
To add insult to injury, the patch is moving across what must be the slowest network on the planet.
I get that you guys are a small shop, but come on. How about making the patching process a bit less of a pain in the ass? My friends and I just want to play your game and have fun, not spend all this time spinning our wheels and hoping the game is good enough to be worth the trouble.
