Typically the issue with high bandwidth consumers and cost in a broadband environment is the impact on the circuits interconnecting the Telco and possibly contention issues within the Telco's own network.
The cost of transit is not the most significant cost. [...]

The premise here, at least in the post I was replying to, is that P2P is putting pressure on the traditional contention trick (of having some customers subsidise the greater usage of others), and that eventually something is going to have to change (e.g. [...]

NSAI ratify Microsoft XML

Colm Buckley: NSAI ratify Microsoft XML: [...]
You'd think that, from reading the press release. However, their actual vote was "no with comments", and has been recorded at ISO as such.
Note : the ISO vote is concluded; OOXML has failed to gain fast-track approval status (although a plurallity of votes were in favour of OOXML, it [...]

On their own website [ http://www.nsai.ie/index.cfm/area/news/action/article/information/xml ] they report "NSAI has voted Disapproval - with Technical Comments, in respect of the OOXML submission".
That's straight from the horse's mouth.

Glenn Strong: NSAI ratify Microsoft XML: [...]
According to NSAI they voted "Disapproval - with Technical Comments"[1].
This is, as far as I can see, the ISO version of "Yes, but only as long as you fix the following list of technical problems" (hence the spin), and is as close to a No as the process seems to allow for. [...]

It's reported wrong. The actual vote is no with technical qualifications. Please don't spread evil propaganda!!! :)

Because the cost of accurately billing the difference far outweighs the costs of just not bothering.

Um - they are offering "native" IP network access. The fact they may be using L2TP and MPLS is irrelevant - they (or usually $INCUMBENT_TELCO) are simply choosing to use those technologys to connect the ISPs customers to the ISPs data centre. Remember, when DSL was first introduced into Ireland, it was ATM from the customer site to the data centre - all that the introduction of L2TP did was make it cheaper for the Telco to supply connections to the ISP (one of the direct results of the introduction of L2TP was that Eircom started treating the country as one, instead of under the ATM based solution where Eircom charged different prices depending on what part of the country the customer was in).
[...]
There's very little margin in supplying consumer DSL in any case. The driver is typically to keep prices down - that's what the main factor in the consumer market is.

Brian Foster: Followup 2: Naive ADSL/WiFi questions [ almost no response from the unit in a local test!? ]: I previously noted the Hitachi/Tecom AH4021 ADSL WiFi router apparently ran Linux and netfilter.
this seems Ok: one of the paper docs which came with the unit is GPL v2, and also lists URLs for the source (and GPL). the quibble is the source URLs are for kernel.org and netfilter.org (i.e. [...]

It's the geography of the situation as well.
Being stuck between Germany France and the UK means that there is a huge amount of traffic transitting AMS-IX that has very little to do with the size of the Dutch market and quite a lot to do with the sizes [...]

Im not sure :) I want to check to see if I never actually deleted this partition when I thought I had or if the Dell Vista install disc put it there again after i reinstalled. # Apparently you can use this partition for suspend with Linux as well [...]

Wandering partition bootable flag

Frank Duignan: Wandering partition bootable flag: Ah, a clue. When I installed Linux on my laptop I deleted a partition which was equal in size to my RAM - the prepared partition no doubt. Is this an answer?

Google suggest that it is someone trying to send big emails. It all depends which settings you have and which max size you might want to allow. This is just a shot in the dark since I am using postfix.
