Hope this is a proper thead for this; if not, pls move or tell me where to move it.

Just did the 1.06 firmware lens update (distortion control) on my D7000.
Now I'm still learning as a long time amateur photographer - why I come here; best place to learn and 'up' my game, but, with computers, I go back to the hobby kit days, and laptops with no hard drives. I can do nearly everything on a PC or, my long fave, Macs.

Here's the Rant:
Why, O why, does Nikon have to make firmware updates so damn seemingly hard?!?
The instructions are too long, poorly written, and inconsistent.
I mean REALLY.
& when you get to the end, if it doesn't take, I mean, work, then they have the ominous 'talk to your Nikon service rep!'. Like I want to do that for what should be such a simple update!
I'm surprised those with minimal computer skills don't squawk about this overly cumbersome, horribly written set of instructions.
Or picket Nikon repair centers and corporate HQ's with torch & pitchfork!!

And, why can't I just do it in the camera?!?

Now I feel better.
Thanks for listening.
