Hello Diane, how's it going?
What a gorgeous day!
I love this kind of Vancouver weather.
I really feel that I'm in a paradise. :)

Yesterday, Sylvie came to me in Joe Fortes Library while I viewed the "Freud" DVD.




"Kato, do you know, Diane's taking a piano lesson?"



"Really?"

"Do you know why?"

"No idea...how come?"

"'Cause she wanna type on the keyboard much faster."

Then Sylvie grinned charmingly.






Oh yes! She has a peculiar and funny sense of humor! :)

Well, I believe you're taking a piano lesson with a sense of romance.
That's the reason I've written an article called "Maiden's Prayer."

Unfortunately, I lost a two-hours-and-half-writing work due to the malfunction of the DVD drive at the central library.
I spent another two hours on the article.
That's the reason I couldn't send an e-mail to you.
So I gave you a note with the article URL.

Since my hand-writing was so poor that you probably entered the wrong URL in the browser window.
And I suppose that the WordPress machine automatically corrected the wrong URL and transfered it to the following URL:

http://denman705.wordpress.com/diane/

It might have truncated the last portion.
So, you saw "Bandwidth Exceeded!" message.



Here is the right URL.

"Maiden's Prayer"

(Thurs., August 25, 2011)

To save yourself typing, click the above link.
I'm pretty sure that you'll be able to read the right article this time.
Enjoy "Maiden's Prayer"!

Ciao with a lot of love.
Your truly skinny Beethoven,



Kato




Diane, did you enjoy the article?



Oh yes, I did, though I can hardly believe your story.

Why is that?

Well..., playing the piano is so difficult to me.

But you're always typing so fast on the keyboard.  So it must be easy for you to play the piano.

Oh no.  Kato, there is a big difference between a computer keyboard and a piano.

Is that right?

Yes, very much so.  Anyway, why don't you come to my place and play "Maiden's Prayer" for me?

Oh..., I can't.

Why not?

...'Cause my fingers have completely forgotten to play the piano since I haven't played it for more than 20 years.

You must be kidding.

I'm quite serious.

Well..., why don't you start practicing it?

I'd rather spend more time on writing articles.

Anyway, how come I got the "Bandwidth Exceeded!" message?

A good question!  By the way, Diane, do you know the meaning of "bandwidth"?

Oh yes, I think I do...it's probably the width of a waist band, isn't it?

He, he, he, he, he... Diane, you've got a sense of humor, haven't you?  I'll show you the right answer here.


Bandwidth



In computer networking and computer science, bandwidth, network bandwidth, data bandwidth, or digital bandwidth is a bit rate measure of available or consumed data communication resources expressed in bits/second or multiples of it (kilobits/s, megabits/s etc.).

Bandwidth in web hosting

In website hosting, the term "bandwidth" is often incorrectly used to describe the amount of data transferred to or from the website or server within a prescribed period of time, for example bandwidth consumption accumulated over a month measured in gigabytes per month.

The more accurate phrase used for this meaning of a maximum amount of data transfer each month or given period is monthly data transfer.

So I assume that people incorrectly use the term.



Yes, they do.  The more accurate phrase is "monthly data transfer."





So, the maximum amount of data transfer each month is 5 gigabytes(5 GB), isn't it?



Yes, it is.

By the way, what is a byte?

A good question.  The byte is a unit of digital information in computing and telecommunications that most commonly consists of eight bits.  Historically, a byte was the number of bits used to encode a single character of text in a computer.

So, when I send a single character on the net, that is one byte, isn't it?

Yes, that's right.

Then, 5 GB(gigabytes) per month means you can send as many as 5,000,000,000 charcters on the Net.

Yes, you're right, Daine.  One gigabyte usually means 1,000,000,000 bytes.  But historically, one gigabyte has also been used in some fields of computer science and information technology to denote the gibabyte as 1,073,741,824 = 1024 X 1024 x 1024 bytes.

Why is the difference?

Well..., difference between decimal and binary numeral system, in which it goes like 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 512, 1024.  So, according to the binary numeral system, one gigabyte is 1024 x 1024 x 1024 = 1,073,741,824.

I see...complicated, isn't it?  So, Kato, how many pages can you send per month on the Net?

The article called "Maiden's Prayer" consists of 26 KB(kilobytes). For simplycity purpose, lets's say, it consists of 26,000 bytes. So, 5,000,000,000 divided by 26,000 equals 192,308, which means that 192,308 surfers can read my article per month. When 192,309th surfer tries to read the article, he or she will see the "Bandwidth Exceeded!" message.

I see...so, approximately 192,000 people read your blog per month, don't they?

At least 200,000 people read my blog per month.

Why is that?

You see, Daine, the 5GB limit reached on August 22---7 days before the reset date (August 29).
