Oh, dear! Well done.

When I got Slashdotted it was not even remotely similar, perhaps 
because it was
Sunday and was purely Palm-related.

It is unlikely that your hosts will vent their anger for high bandwidth 
you do not share large media files. Strong players reflect well on the 
hosts and
often get forced to upgrade to costly premium packages.
