Nearly 300 years worth of porn was recorded to test Amazon’s … – Neowin

In the present, just as in 1724, the human race found itself in an adventurous spirit, a spirit that asked big questions, a spirit that demanded to know what the boundaries were and to push the envelope. Beaston02 wanted to know if the unlimited cloud storage offered by Amazon was really unlimited, so he recorded live webcam porn to see if he could break the boundaries of “unlimited” cloud storage. And if you started watching his recorded porn back in 1724 you would only just have finished it.

Amazon suspended its unlimited storage option in June – many speculate that it was due to beaton02’s giant porn stash – but he himself claims that decision has nothing to do with him. The Redditor claims that he has more of a problem with hoarding data than he does with porn, as the whole thing started out as a part of a bigger project to learn new code and to test himself to see how much data he could capture.

So he set off and after 5 to 6 months he had captured nearly 2 petabytes (1.8) of pornography by setting up a number of programs to record a number of free Livestream webcam shows. Which if you break it down equates to the following: 23.4 years worth of HD porn, 102 years worth of porn at 720p, or a whopping 3 centuries worth (293 years) at 480p.

Beaston02 has stopped his recording adventures but has released how he did it, and the torch has been passed on to another group of diligent porn archivists – if we are going to let that become a title – who have collectively embarked on the Petabyte Porn Project, which has the similar goal of recording and storing recorded porn on Amazon and Google Drive. The Petabyte Porn Project allegedly stockpiles 12 terabytes a day.

Earlier this month the plans for the largest data storage centre that will be built in the Arctic Circle in Norway was reported on, back then some naysayers questioned what could possibly demand such a huge secure facility, it seems that question has been answered.
