We're running two types of interdiction tests on Monday. One type is
where we do actual DL testing and see how our interdiction system is
handling (with the addition of the torrents Jed found). And we will also
do an interdiction presence test, to see out of all the Black Donnellys
torrents on, what percent actually made it to our system.


Also, we have interdiction tests running today, so we can compare that
with Monday's data.

The first week happens to be the exact same day as the QA team tested
interdiction on black donnellys 3/19. Our internal test was 100%
effective as well, that was the first week we saw really good results.
I do not know what happened the second week, we don't have a recent
interdiction test. It is possible from the way the data looks that they
tested exclusively from mininova the first week, and from snarf-it the
second week, and we were not hitting snarf-it. We will need to be
running interdiction tests on Monday.

For their 2 week data:

* Black Donnelly's on BT actually produced better results on week
1 than week 2. On the attached BT sheet, I've highlighted in yellow all
the ones that were good downloads. Notice that they all came in week 2.
Week 1 was 100% effective. Week 2 was 30% effective. Without knowing
the infohash, I can't determine if we had interdiction active for all
the torrents they attempted.
* There ARE several instances where they grabbed CD1 of a file,
but no corresponding CD2. Those are highlighted in red on the attached
eDonkey sheet.
* They're NOT attempting only the most recent season. An example
is their "Office", "House MD", and "Law and Order" tests below.
