[Interest] Online Installer/Maintence tool not working

I'm trying to upgrade to Qt 5.5.

It might be because of a 5.5 stampede, but none of the online stuff is working. I Force Quitted that (OSX), and it would't launch. So I launched it from the command line. It said I needed to update the maintenance tool. I've been sitting at a maintenance tool screen that has been waiting to get passed "Select components" screen for 5 minutes now.

I gave up on that, went to an online installer, and can't get passed the "License Agreement" page. Also, it didn't want to put 5.5 into the same directory ~/Qt as 5.4. So I told it ~/Qt5.5. I've complained about this before. It should be able to put its payload into a common ~/Qt directory, just like the maintenance tool can do.

The only thing that has worked today is my login.

So now, like I usually do, I'm downloading the offline installer. I wish those other mechanisms were more reliable. But I always have issues so I end up with ~/Qt (5.3), ~/Qt5.4, ~/Qt5.5.
