    Download limit exceed....

    I'm pretty sick of sites like megaupload and rapidshare especially who offer a decent service and then just get increasingly greedier as they become more popular. As they expand they should become more efficient and theoretically be able to improve limits. But now that they feel like they are peaking, it seems like they are trying to limit spending as much as possible.

    As more and more people use their service, the more and more bandwidth is used which costs them major money. So they limit what can be downloaded to make sure they can afford the bandwidth.

    I hate those sites. Full of crappy ads, have to wait to download things, very slow speed, if you make a mistake and click the "download" button twice then boom you're screwed, DAMN IT!
    Plus they don't work with NTL since NTL uses a web cache so... download limit is always exceeded. Unless I use a proxy.

    But come on, use sendspace, zshare, etc.
    there are other better websites, for god's sake!

    I honestly feel bad for people who pays for Rapidshare premium accounts. I would never pay for such things.

    I think Megaupload's kinda better sense since you can buy lifetime membership and you can make folders and stuff.
