How many gigabytes in Blathering On? by Ken Dunn on 10 January 2008 2:03am
 
This won't help my headache but:

There are 164 pages with 50 titles with 55 bytes per title = 41,250 bytes of titles.
~
There is an average of 1 thread per page with 150 messages.
~
There is an average of 10 threads per page with 40 messages.
~
There is an average of 39 threads per page with 15 messages.
~
Average message length is 3 full lines.
~
There are 100 bytes per line.
~
Total messages per page is 150 + (10 x 40) + (39 x 15) = 550 + 390 + 195 = 1135.
~
Total bytes in Blathering On messages is

164 pages x 1135 messages per page x 300 bytes per message + 41250 bytes of titles =

55,883,250 = 56Mb = 0.056Gb

If we increase this by about 15% we can include the travel etc. forums and we get 0.065Gb (+ or - 20% to allow for approximations) of chatter.

I'm surprised we find time to breathe, never mind doing anything else!!!

Glad to say that on starting the paracetamol the headache is easing.
Add 1% kazzzz.
