Ive been looking all over for where the tokens are hiding.   I had to laugh at the hiding places @GabeU Found.

I found some more HERE..

@MarkJFine is right. Never show themselves .  I wonder how long they'll hide there.. Smiley Happy

What I'd do, and I wish I had done with my own, is leave at least some of those tokens right where they are.  What I mean is don't add all of them to the Token Bytes Available by clicking on the Use button next to the 9 Prepaid and 6 Free tokens.  That way, you can decide whether to use your token data or go into FAP, though the 3000MB that you already do have banked would have to be used (automatically) before going into FAP.  For most things, FAP speed would be fine for me, and I would only need full service speed for streaming or download a large file, for which I could then add some token data to the Token Bytes Available by clicking on "Use" next to them.  But, I made the mistake of clicking "use" on all of my tokens, so I can't control their usage that way now.  If I run out of Service Plan Data my tokens are going to be automatically used and I will never go into FAP until every single MB of token data is utilized.  Smiley Sad  Not that I want to have to do either, but I'd rather be able to choose whether to use tokens or go into FAP if I ever run out of my service plan data.    

 

That's just an idea.

Re: Why would I even notice something like this?

Thanks Gabe. I planned to leave them right where they are. Maybe they will reproduce, clone themselves, Multiply!!!

Token - Free (500MB)    Token - Free (500MB)     We dont even Know if the six little  Token - Free (500MB)    Token - Free (500MB)     Tokens are the same 3GB that have been already awarded to me because  Token - Free (500MB)      Token - Free (500MB)    of the satellite outage of Jan 2 this year.

It might have been a  Data Token - 3 GB (3000MB)   There are also 9 more little Token - Prepaid (500MB)  in the ADD playpen. Heck, they might morph into something big.   Data Token - 10 GB (10000MB)

The 3GB of tokens given due to the outage in early Jan is almost assuredly the 3000MB that is already in the Data Tokens Available (banked).  So, you actually have 10.5GB of tokens in total, with the 3GB from the outage already banked.  Not bad at all.  Smiley Happy 

 

As for multiplying, stranger things have happened!  LOL.  Smiley Tongue

I went on a binge in Nov 2017 and downloaded a bunch of "flac" audio file of live concerts in '68 and early 70's.

about 4.8 Gb of Grateful Dead, 10 Gb of NRPS, another 10Gb of Gram Parsons with the Byrds, and Flying Burrito Bros, and EmmyLou Harris.  Token - Prepaid (500MB)  who all Gram sang with. I met Mr FAP that month       Token - Prepaid (500MB)          FAP wasnt so bad. I probably have more Audio files time stamped that month. I was downloading on 2 Drives so that they wouldnt over heat.

I didnt know those little  tokens  were hiding till just a few days ago.

So, YOU haven't met Mr FAP yet?   (the cell phones made me do it)

Every once in a while the one guy posts **bleep**'s Picks - select Dead concerts. Was always tempted but never got started, 'cause I'd never stop.

 

Edit: That bleep was supposed to be "Di*k's"... Named after tape vault archivist: Di*k Latvala.

I got hooked. I started in the beginning, when Napster got busted, BearShare  took hold.

My BroBill said  it was awesome, but there was no Bluegrass. (notice I didnt say country)

OK I'll look , found BluegrassCountry.org and they got sutdown and moved all their files to Etree.org.

(the digital version of the original tape traders of Dead Concerts.)

I came to find out........ Token - Free (500MB)   that Garcia played banjo in a Caliifornia band with the name of Old & In the Way.

 

Who Knew? Grateful Dead played Bluegrass?
