It's 1.7 TB - TERABYTES - you fucking retard

Take your fucking poncy Tibibytes and shove them up your arse.

"Oh, but we have to have the bi to specify it's BINARY Terabytes you see!"

No, you don't, you foul smelling infected festering gonad. ONLY YOU insignificant fucking worms get confused as to whether kilo is 1,000 or 1,024 depending on context.

Kinda pisses people off that nothing is actually broken but the service bill is tendered, just the same

I'm not quite sure what you're getting at here. They're pissed off because something's NOT broken? Or they're pissed off because they have to pay for somebody's time? Either way they don't sound like very rational people.

Comment Re:What's the cost for Cash? (Score 1) 732

This whole "cost for cash" argument is somewhat silly. Doesn't the same "problem" apply to the banks? Surely by this logic, an electronic transaction should be cheaper than a cash transaction. Why, then, do the banks charge this exhorbitant "transaction fee"?

As a (former) small business owner, I had a gross revenue of around $600k p.a. and a net profit of around $100k p.a.

The bank wanted 2.4%. Let's assume I switched to 100% cashless - that's $15k in fees - 15% of my net profit.

Pisses me off immensely when people trivialise the cost of accepting plastic.
