    If I read the comment below correctly and I was conservative in my estimates by an order of magnitude, both in terms of total call time per day in the US and current audio compression rates, then you can probably fit every call made in the US each day on 30-40 4TB HDs, and probably even fewer.

    And now by my ability to do basic math I have made myself a person of interests to the authorities. As have you by engaging me. Expect a knock on your door any minute now...
