I’m on rations and I’m not coping. No, not the food type, although given the way my stomach seems to have magically ballooned over the past couple of weeks that probably wouldn’t be such a bad idea. I’m on internet rations.
Thanks to the stupid way internet access works in this otherwise magnificent company we are on restricted speed (I’m on 1500K) and limited to a download limit each month. Because network TV has started up again in the States and we want to watch Lost, Desperate Housewives, Veronica Mars and Rome I am now perilously close to my peak limit of 10 Gig. I didn’t use my off peak allocation wisely at the start of the month and now I’m down to a meagre 250MB a day until Wednesday.
The worse is over, we survived the weekend with both of us being home and with a hockey game on so we’ll make it through. Still, there’s nothing worse than watching your downloads when the net is such an integral part of our lives. So, until the day after tomorrow please don’t post interesting photos, don’t link to interesting videos, don’t post cool podcasts and whatever you do don’t launch the Australian iTunes music store.
