did I mention that I'm off tomorrow?


Going up to Newcastle, finally. Been trying to get up there for a couple of weeks now, but what with the snow and parties and stuff, never quite made it. And as I have the day off, we're going up tomorrow instead of saturday. Hoping to get up to Hadrian's Wall so EB can see it up close and personal.

right, this is getting silly. Something has downloaded nearly 400MB of data on this pc today.

I'm pretty sure K's forum surfing isn't doing it, and I've only just come on here, so it's not me.

At this rate, I'll be out of broadband by the start of March, and the limit doesn't reset until the 10th of March.

What's eating up my bandwidth, peeps?

hmmm. Plusnet are now doing an 'unlimited' package, for £11.99 per month for the first three months, then £15.99 thereafter. There's some traffic shaping for games/usenet/peer-to-peer, but I can live with that.

upgraded. Trouble is the new limits (or lack thereof) don't kick in until the next monthly billing cycle. I've emailed them to ask if it's possible to boost my limit for this month. We can but ask. Failing that, we'll have to watch the broadband usage carefully, and limit LB's access - she's been watching a *lot* of The Green Balloon club on the cbeebies site - K didn't realise that every time she watches a video, it downloads again.
