(Insert standard disclaimer about online polls)

  * self-selecting participants
  * I am not a statistician
  * possibly ambiguous question
  * non-numeric and ambiguous answers
  * variable conditions such as 8BITMIME
  * non-pedantic use of MB, Mb, mB, MiB, mb, meg, byte, and nibble (Have
    you thrown up in your mouth yet, Narelle? :-P )
  * etc.

I'm comfortable with my decision based on the results, but i don't 
recommend that you be. ;-)
