I think this is a little unfair on the original poster.
The arithmetic in the documentation does appear to be incorrect - look at the
If 8 x 600 bytes per second = 4800 bits per second (which seems reasonable to
then how can
8 x 8000 kilobytes per second = 64 kilobits per second
and 8 x 32000 kilobytes per second = 256 kilobits per second?
The multiplication by 8 is to convert from bytes to bits.
The units (X per second, or kilo-X per second) should not change.
Therefore I believe the correct calculations should be:
8 x 32000 bytes per second = 256000 bits per second = 256kilobits per second
8 x 8000 bytes per second = 64000 bits per second = 64 kilobits per second
8 x 600 bytes per second = 4800 bits per second
Note the omission of "kilobytes per second" from the first column of numbers.
I don't know, maybe if we all waited then cosmic rays would write all our
software for us. Of course it might take a while.
