  • SURYA AHUJA thinks this is interesting:

For instance, receiving a 20-KB email message uses about 20,480 bytes + 10% of 20,480 bytes + 250 = 22,778 bytes incoming, and it uses 5% of 22,778 + 250 = 1389 bytes outgoing.

Sending a 50-KB web document over HTTP uses 51,200 + 10% of 51,200 + 250 = 56,570 bytes out and 5% of 56,570 + 250 = 3079 bytes in.
