    I only get a 10 Gig allowance each month, after that, telstra cap me to dialup speed.

    I have enough time prioritising my usage between music downloads, porn downloads and general web surfing, let alone throwing the odd top gear episode into the mix!

    I've got a smaller cap then that, and I seem to manage getting all the episodes, even from 1989.

    The software said "Windows 98 or better". So I installed Linux.

    I've got 20gb/month but my isp doesnt count uploads as part of the cap (like I believe tel$tra does) I've got tooooo much stuff here... Have filled my 250gb drive - think it's time to go buy another one.. Although I still have about 50gb free on my boot drive.

    I wonder what the ratings for Top Gear were like compared to Mythbusters? And if they had more recent episodes (2 year old "news" doesn't help) I am sure it would improve too.

    Will he sell some Mike

    Anyway, back on topic. Did anyone else see the news articles suggesting that Topgear may no longer have a venue for its next season!? They say that their current location was always temporary, as its owners bought it as a site for property development which will be under way in the not too distant future.

    Their proposed site has run into planning snags as locals have complained about noise pollution.

    I hope they can get it sorted!!!

    i think with its popularity in the UK and europe, people will be more than willing to donate backyards as a means of track
