This is not be a puzzle, it's a maths problem.
( Couldn't find the right place to post it )
What is the formula to convert this to kb/sec?

No formula really

141.161 bytes = 0.141161 Kilobytes = 141.161 /1000

Therefore if it took 176 secs we have to work out how many kilobites were being tranferred every second therefore we dvide the number of Kilobytes by the number of seconds:

=0.141161/176 = 8 x 10 ^ -4 Kilobytes per sec

Which calculates to the slowest download on record <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

So convert the files to Kilobytes and divide by the seconds it took

I'm guessing (could be wrong of course) that the filesize is 141KB, not bytes. The latter would be so small that I doubt it could even hold the standard JPEG header information, let alone a picture. In that case, the transfer rate is 0.8 KB.sec or 800 bytes/sec.

Ah, all you people who live in the West. Making assumptions about number formats. My guess is that RedChequer lives in a country where the Thousands seperator is a period (.) Where I live (Saudi Arabia) this is the case with the decimal seperator being a comma.

According to his profile, Chequer lives in Australia, a country that uses the dot/period as decimal separator. But who knows...
