nope, it was all rough back of the envelope stuff really, just to try
and get a handle on the volumes of data and thus the physical demands
of gathering it and storing it. You'd really need a robotic
disk/cartridge loader.

I think as an average it still isn't a *bad* figure - the numbers were
from a few years ago. I know my family of four routinely hit 250GB a
month, but we do watch a lot of netflix.

/me checks and goes boggled eyed at seeing we hit 500GB in November...
ponders who's been using all the bandwidth!
