It was listed on Slickdeals' popular deals hours before it went on sale and become a frontpage deal once it went live. Given the price and popularity of the drive I'm surprised it went as long as it did.
There will be other deals so I wouldn't sweat it. The SSD price war is in full swing and at the rate they're going we might see them at .50/GB in a couple of months
a co-worker regularly downloads ~1.5GB per day of music from a legitimate DJ music service at the office. is it too nitty to throttle his connection to that particular website if it is breaking the acceptable use policy but not really affecting anything else? i have asked several times that he stop.
i agree that would make it an easy call, but he really only gets ~3.2Mbps out of the server from which he's downloading and we have 25Mbps service with burst up to ~60Mbps. so like maybe avg round trip time is 75ms instead of 55ms but that's about all the effect anyone could feel.
