    Thank god for internet connections at work :)

    I was getting about a meg a second with just one connection, which progressively dropped with each download. I probably sucked up all of gametrailers.com's bandwidth during this little transfer. :)

    Or your own connection.

    Reminds me of the time I got written up at work... I (being a dumbass not knowing what would happen) turned off *ALL* the restrictions and limiters for my file sharing program. Two hours later I was handed an inch-and-a-half thick printout of the IP addresses connected to my box. I had floored the bandwidth of a state university... NOTHING else would go through.

    However, since I was instructed by the department VP to download classical music selections, I was only given a small wrist slap and the issue was never put on record.

    I considered that... but only AFTER the downloads were done :p

    We have a DS3 though... I probably didnt slow down the rest of the network much, but an extra gig of bandwidth may well stand out to the network guys.. we'll see what happens :)
