    I just noticed something's not quite right with the Orcon billing
    system. There are 744 hours in a 31 day month. Looking through my
    Orcon account history there are three months where the system reports
    that my ADSL was connected for more than 744 hours. Each billing cycle
    is from the 23rd to the 22nd of the month. In one case it reports I
    was connected for 928 hours!

    I also strongly suspect that the JetStart usage meter is
    under-reporting international traffic, but I'm not complaining about
    that :)

  2. Most likely they roll their wtmp logs weekly and failed to record
    administrative logouts before doing so.
