    Yes, it consists of hot oil. Not pleasant so I've heard.

    I looked twice at go large and the 'fair use' plan on ihug, glad I chose to stay on my current plan

    Well put it this way... who in their right mind would DL 700MB or over in 8 hours?

    And no, I havn't been in it as you probably have guessed

    Actually it is not the lines that they have put this 700MB restriction in but the servers that can't handle it

    I can do that in an hour or two easily... Thats the time I scheduled the latest Gentoo LiveCD Installer disc to be downloaded. I scheduled it only for two hours.. it finished in that period of time. I also happened to be up surfing for a little bit so needless to say: 680MB CD + me surfing, downloading the odd YouTube video (Elmo meets Rove and Kevin Clash is so awesome!) = 700MB+

    ...and I wasnt even trying

    Maybe he was being sarcastic?

    I downloaded the GTR2 mod for rFactor, 540mb, took just a few minutes, was corrupted, downloaded it again, sweet as, over 1GB of data in less then an hour, Then I immediatly downloaded the 1979 Formula 1 mod and track pack, another 500 mb.

    Its all good, thats what broadband is for......

    If I really wanted to I could also easy move 700MB in an hour or two easy if thing where right & Xtra did now slow down FTP.

    (That is a month of database backups)

    PS: I don’t think we have been in the leechers pool yet.

    Ok, I will clarify...

    What I mean is (I know it is possible to do over 700MB in an hour even) at that time of the day, I am DLing all the mods and maps for UT2004 and a couple other games, I have DLed over 1.5GB in about 3 hours yesterday and my record is 10GB in one day, maybe I wasn't specific enough... [REWORD]Who would DL 700MB in the hours between 4PM and 12AM? constantly. ie over most nights[/REWORD] Meh, I can't be bothered trying to explain myself... If you don't see where I am coming from to bad

    700MB is nothing. Just over 1 CD or two TV episodes from the US shows. Do that while flying FSX at the same time.

    Just try playing games online for 8 hours as well and see how much data they chew through. I have used nearly 1GB playing BF2132 in the last 3 days alone. A few downloads as well but not many.
    Downloads at 350KB/s does not take long to sucj 700MB through
