Hi zebedeeboss, in the future when you're posting terminal outputs, could you please encapsulate them with the # code function in the forum editor.  If the output is very long could you use the Sp spoiler function instead.  I've done this for you this time - many thanks  ;).

Peppermint Six must be a screamer on that rig of yours - very nice  ;).

I am now officially in love with Peppermint...  I am so used to having my panel on the left in windows...  How good does that look...   Well it does to me and that's all that matters here :D

Well, I'm tickling you a byte (ahem), but no, I'm not kidding you.  You can't just move the decimal. 

How many GB in 1 TB? 1024, right?

1 gigabyte is 10 to the 9th power bytes.  1 terabyte is 10 to the 12th.

This client/user has a total storage size of 23004.5 GB, right?

xGB 1024 = xTB

~ or ~

23004.5 GB 1024 = 22.465332031 TB

...unless I'm missing something.   :)

Yeah, I am, but it's not that.  LoL   :D

A few years ago I designed and built a PHP  'bandwidth meter' from scratch.  It's accurate (tested and verified) from 56k dialup to 10 Mbps broadband.

My production site has been down since we started beta testing Peppermint 6, or I would show it to you.  My ASP shut me down because I had too many connections (e.g. too popular) and it was dragging their network down.  I really need to take a timeout and get it running again.  But, I digress...

I did a quick Google Search.  Here's the 'bandwidth meter' explanation page, in Russian...

LINK:  http://www.oneby.ru/bandwidth-meter-dsl.html

Heh!  I don't know what they're trying to do.  Looks like they were scraping data from my site using cURL or whatevs.

Anyway, it was V important to use exact mathematical formulas in my algos and regex.  Bandwidth calculation basically works the same way as storage calculation.  That's why I looked at your figure above, and knew it was wrong.

Truthfully, I wouldn't have even mentioned it, but you asked, soooo...   8)

You're right you know.  That's a lot of jpegs  ;D!!

If I had that much space, I'd build the world's largest flat file database, for shizzles.  Screw SQL!

On second thought, maybe I am a little anal...   :D
