Re: Maths Problems

Approximately 350 notices may have been processed in April - about 10 a day for April. This compares to October 2008 - about 20 a day. Thanks for that. I really didn't think I'd see any numbers at all with my question, it was really more tongue in cheek. With those numbers you've restored my faith ...

Re: Maths Problems

You should not blame others for "encouraging" something when they are simply providing the service. Alright, your point. "encouraging" was a poor choice of word. "tacitly allowing and accepting" maybe? Not quite what I'm after because I also wanted to make the point that it is used as a competitive...

Re: Maths Problems

I'm surprised at the number of non-staff members who seem blind to reality. The reality I know is that people are downloading copyright material left, right and centre and are being encouraged to do so by ISPs competing with large download limits - there's at least one ISP that specifically advertis...

Re: Maths Problems

Looks like you need 60GB peak and that's fine. I'm talking about off-peak, presumably with the computer unsupervised so Internet radio doesn't count. Who listens to Internet radio at 0000? Internet TV, well you're not supposed to be keeping a copy of that so you have to be there watching it between ...

Re: Maths Problems

I'd be guessing one user out of every 1000 you have uses the Internet to back up data (I'm talking home users here). You'd be lucky if one user out of every 1000 backs up his/her hard drive to an external drive every day, let alone the Internet. Anyway, that's UP traffic so it isn't counted. I was t...

Maths Problems

Exetel users get 54 or 60Gb of off-peak download every month. I cannot reconcile this fact with the position that Exetel and the site admin here apparently take against IP theft. I cannot imagine how anyone can possibly use 60Gb of non-copyright data, on a presumably unsupervised (off-peak) computer...
