It was 11.14 pm and I can’t sleep. I opened Firefox and, as usual, checking emails from both Yahoo! Mail and GMail. The speed of the Internet was quite good. I can open Facebook, Koprol and Twitter. Pushed my last (code) change to Github. And sent the replied email. Everything was clearly good.
Logout from GMail, I noticed that there was a number counting up indicating the free storage of GMail. I have nothing to do so I just looking at the number increasing every single second. I saw that the increasing number was somewhat between 4 and 5 with probability like six to ten times of 4 and one time of 5. Interesting.
Then I came up with this little math:
At 11.14 pm (May 22, 2011), I’ve got as much as 7585.725500 megabytes of free storage. I can say that it’s about 7.585 gigabytes.
If the addition was as much as 0.000004/second, then I’ll get 0.000240/minute. Continuing this pattern, I’ll get:
0.345600/day, and finally,
I can simplify the equation to:
totalGigabytes = (7585.725500 + (126.144000 * year))
So, if I want to get 10 Gigabytes of free storage, I should have wait for:
10000.000000 = (7585.725500 + (126.144000 * year))
year = (10000.000000 – 7585.725500) / 126.144000
year = 19.1390355.
Whooa! I’m afraid I’ve calculated it using the wrong method. Let’s get some sleep.
