You know, if ISPs had some sort of saving system, where you got to keep 
your unused quota for future months, or gave you a discount on your next 
month if you used less than your quota this month, it'd make a lot of 
sense.  There's no incentive for people to keep their download usage down, 
and every incentive to 'get their money's worth' by downloading up to their 
limit; this increases the pressure on the ISP (who _does_ pay for every 
byte you download (so to speak), whether you do or not).

Not that I'm being critical, really; just thinking of ways to make the 
world better...

Have fun,
