concealment writes "On November 27, RapidShare will start putting a tight cap on outbound downloads for its free users. Paid members will still have 30 gigabytes in outbound downloads per day, but everybody else will be capped at one gigabyte. The change is expected to further deter pirates from using RapidShare to distribute copyright material on a large scale."

    Who registers accounts with real personal data?

    I *always* do, it's a matter of principle.

    I know what you're thinking - YES, high school (and Jr. High for that matter) was a bitch for me, what with "Hey PISS this and PISS that..."

    All I can say is that it made me a better person with thicker skin. This helped when I joined the military - Recruit PISS, Airman PISS, and finally, Sgt PISS...

    But I used the GI Bill to get ahead, and all you asshats can now call me Professor PISS, if you want t decent grade. To my cook and maid and gardener, I'm Mr. PISS.

    But my friends just call me Frosty P...

    And I *NEVER* misrepresent my bona fides on line. Never.

If at first you don't succeed, you must be a programmer.

Working...
