Don't think that 250gb limit will effect most of us.

Bookshare has a limit of 50 books per month, and that's approximately 1% of 250gb.

Just my opinion.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Speaking of downloads


I read an article--and just read a more recent one--that Comcast is going to limit U.S. downloads to 250 GB a month. The earlier article I read said that other ISPs like might also set a limit and charge for what's over it. Will that affect some of you? Maybe there'll be an exemption for bookshare members? I have no idea how many books it would take to reach the 250GB limit.

Hi, Jamie. Your download count for books will start over at
0 on
Monday, September 1st. As for a download histry, Bookshare
doesn't
have a section for that. If you use Firefox as your
browser, it keeps
a history of downloaded files, and you can right click them
and
download them again. I don't know if Internet Explorer
has such a
function.

This won't help you right now. It might in the future
though, so I
thought I'd share what I do. I download and unpack my
books into a
folder on my hard drive. Then I copy books I want to read
from that
folder onto my flash card, thumb drive, or my Book Port. It
leaves the
books intact on my hard drive so I can get them again if
something
weird happens to the copies on my flash drives. It also
helps me keep
track of everything I've downloaded in one place, even
if I have books
scattered on several different devices. Maybe this could
help you too.

I'm sorry to hear about your BrailleNote issue. I
don't have any
Braille devices, so I don't have anything helpful to
share on that
score.
