maybe a few hours i guess. 7 gb is huge. probably about 6- 6 and a half hours.

Considering some bad rounding pertaining to converting, my math comes to around six and a half hours.

But then again, with the fact that rarely to never does a computer download something at a constant rate, who the fuck knows how long it'll take?

300kb/s = 37.5kB/s

7GB = 7,340,032KB

7,340,032 / 37.5 = 195,734.187s

195,734s = 3,262.23333 min

3,262 min = 54.3666667 hr


54 x 60 = 3,240

3,262 - 3,240 = 22


~ 54 hr 22 min

hm...
If I was wrong, then I apologize for my criticism.

I don't think the conversion of the kb was necessary. There's no difference between kb and KB... it's (b - B - kb - mb - gb)

Isn't that right?

i think you did something wrong. there's no way it should take that long.

Makes sense to me.

Other people may be going by 300kB/s, but he said kbps, so I've converted it to 37.5kB/s.

There's a big difference between bits(b) and bytes(B).
1 byte = 8 bits

I'll tell you if you learn to spell genius properly.

This + it's plural, ergo, genii.
An Augmented 4th or a Diminished 5th?

Well, I can download at 94.14 MB/s, so hah. How long would it take me to download that same file, to rub it in TS's face?

Edit:

A file size of 94.14 megabytes can also be expressed as 0.09193 gigabytes.
7 divided by 0.09193 = 76.1448929.

Takes me 1 hour and 16 minutes to download it.

TS will take 6 hours and 30 minutes.

I win.

Bitch.

I write songs.

Depends on which meaning of genius you use. A group of people having excetional intellect, a group of people with high intelligence and a group of people who strongly influence are geinuses.

A group of genii is a group of genius- also a word for genie, a guardian spirit or the two spirits (good and bad) that accompany someone through life.
