It's wrong of them?!?! Not to sound irrational here, but you're DOWNLOADING
the file every time, even if you are downloading it every time. Why are you
opening it through HTTP? Why not directly via the FS? If you're local to the
machine, that seems more intelligent. If you're not local to the machine
then you're using not only CPU resource, but network resource, and even more
so should be responsible. It is very difficult for an ISP to differentiate
between what was an external request and what was you requesting something
from yourself. Even if it was simple, I'm not sure they have any obligation
or responsibility to do it.

Everybody will always try to screw you some way or another...
Always look at the small print ;)

And you're right... it's wrong of them... imho.
