TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
If you're listening to a 64 kb stream, that is 8 KB/second.
Those who work at home and have an unlimited bandwidth broadband
account will find this fairly trivial in most cases, but it's over 28
MB per hour if you are on a capped plan.
Of course, add up many of these in a corporate setting and the network
can indeed become somewhat bogged down.
