Cables glowing, servers burning …

… the launch of the newer and better product is a full success at download.com as it seems. A little less than 250 million (244229387 at the time of this writing) downloads in less than two hours, this has to be world record.

Let’s see what bandwidth download.com offers …

244229387 x 17.15 MiB = 4188533987.05 MiB

(For the sake of brevity let’s assume 2 hours, i.e. 7200 seconds)

4188533987.05 MiB / 7200 s = 581740.83 MiB/s = 4653926.65 MBit/s

Yes, dear reader, that is 4.6 million Megabit per second!!! Amazing. Not less amazing, how many users have rated the new product within this short time.

Evil to him who evil thinks,

    That’s great to know if you want to host your application on download.com. They have all the bandwith you ever need 😀

    Poppycock, Balderdash and Malarky if those figures are used for “real” statistics by those folks.

    The number is cummulative going back to the original AAW listing and includes uninstalls, reinstalls, and any other combination you can conceive.

    Believe me, I have SeenItAllBefore!
