Time cost is not a factor at all, and neither is bandwidth cost really, and here's why: My computer and internet connection are on 24 hours a day, whether they are downloading or not. The cost of downloading a movie is nothing more then a minute of my time to start it. Whether I watch it tonight, or a couple days later is immaterial, because I have still had full use of my computer during that time. (for the record, longest I ever spent on one torrent, 6 days. But then it was nearly 11 gigabytes of data.)

Money is the root of all evil, and man needs roots.
