Ben, seems like all the mp3s we're pushing out for Plies - Shawty are
just silent files. Is that normal?

We could probably get even more downloads if we can remove the stupid
"37 x4x4" in the end of the file name =P

Ivan made a pretty major change to his gnutella decoying software that
lets him add spoofed IPs to his sources and drive those results to have
100s of sources, instead of showing the real numbers. This change alone
has increased how many mp3s we're able to push out by at least ~56%.
I'm projecting and estimating a bit to come up with that 50% figure:
yesterday we pushed out 18,000 mp3s and today in just the 18 hours of
the day that have passed we've already pushed out 23,600 mp3s. We may
even surpass that 56% figure depending on how the evening spike actually
plays out.
