In presentations like this one, we get a slew of download requests. Thousands of them. It is conspicuous, in these requests, that many users request multiple downloads of the presentation materials.  Three, five, even ten downloads of the same thing. Happens a lot with mp3 files. We can consider this bandwidth-malicious, but it's probably a certain degree of download cluelessness.


We respectfully ask folks to download files ONCE. If you command a download of a file, and you don't quite know what to do with it, don't just do it again and again. Get help. An mp3 file can be played in a number of applications, including probably your browser.


Multiple downloads of the same file is a form of website hammering. It uses up bandwidth, and slows every thing down. If we see it a lot from your IP, we'll deny service.
