Let us assume some more realistic stats. not everyone would use it.. so lets stay at 100. I mean your stats are scary enough but the idea that that many people would be using for that long is not very likley. However I would like to illustrate that it still has some impact.
100 * 30kb = 3000kb
5 * 12 = 1hour
3000 * 12 = 36000kb = 35.2MB (+some remainder)
if we then went and guessed say 2, 5 hour intervals since they may only have it one while they are infront of the computer.. it's logical right?
that would be 351.6MB rounded off. in just one day
if they only did this on the weekends you would be looking at 2.75 gigs traffic
Now, for me.. I only get 2 gigs of traffic and then I have to pay. I don't know what kind of deal they have here.. however for me it would close down my website. Since my forum is sponsored by me and me alone.
Autoit has a paypal account though so I hope they get enough in there to keep this going. There are a few sites that offer unlimited bandwidth but they don't do that for very long.
(for obvisous reasons)
Oh well.. I'm just poking my nose in since I had an attack from MSNbot which is responsible for over a gig and a half of traffic to my site which had me shut down near the end of the month. Just a bot that was trying to check my site for information for search engines. So I'm more sensitive to the subject of bandwidth lately
