Yes, we do. But I rather spend this bandwidth with regular nutjobs that actually contribute something...

Darn. I was hoping i could find out his ip address and start pinging him from 1am to 7am but thats the evil side of my mind thinking.

I am in a weird mood tonight. I think my eyes are a bit too sore - might need to go to the opto and get some glasses.
Anyone else notice IE7 puts funny fake spaces between letters when you are zooming webpages?

Internet Explorer is pretty fail at zooming font size specified in pixels, it's ok with em's and keywords eg: normal. small, large iirc.

Don't get me started on the other things that IE is fail at :)

PaulBags: I was kinda wondering why I (dropped out of CCNA near the end of semester 3) was explaining basic networking principals to "a network administrator of some 10 years plus experience".

Do you have bandwidth enough for ridicule of nutjobs?

Brings back memories from a call I took back when I was on the helpdesk... some prick called up and kepk asking not be be insulted and to be spoken to like a professional as he was a "level 7 technican'.
I felt like asking the guy how many levels there were in his company as clearly there must have been at least 20 by what rubbish came forth from his mouth.

Back on topic, I've checked my ISPs (not telecom) usage accounting many times with the usage stats produced from my router and firewall (smoothwall) and every month its nearly exactly spot on within 10 MB of eathother.
