Roll back your time clock to the mid 1990s and consider your reaction to this statement (lifted out of context from a comment about BitTorrent):
Yesterday, it took me 2.5 hours to download a measly 39 megs.
I remember being hesitant to download something as large as 5 Mb (even on the LAN at work), that used to be outrageously large. “Measly” 39 Mb indeed. What might be measly in 2010?
