Hello Anatol,

>> I am running Ruby 1.8.2 and RubyGems 0.8.10 on WinXP Home Edition.

Sorry 0.8.10 was absolute crap. An index update could download upto 80 MB from a
complete bandwidth overloaded website. Upgrade to the new RubyGems
version, which is a little bit better, but it still has a problem with
the update speed.
