Remember that evolt.org's bandwidth usage is greater than 100GB a month -
eouk is contributing more than that just for browser archive mirroring.

At the moment, we're using:
26.5 GB/month for all http
145.8 GB/month for beo (including deouk)
? for SMTP/POP3

My guess would be that it's closer to 250GB a month all in.
