I just checked my Juno usage report for this billing period. I'm allowed 150 hours. My usage stood at 122:15 on the 19th (the most recent day for which they have the numbers), with the period running through the 26th. Yikes. I think I've probably used up between 20 and 25 hours in the last four days. I'm getting very close to going over my limit. If I go over, they charge $1.95 an hour. So, for the next couple of days, I have to limit myself to no more than an hour a day, just to be on the safe side. Tonight, I found that it takes about a half hour to load my LJ friends page, and all the comments, into my browser. (Slow dial-up connection.) So, that's how I'll be reading until the 27th. I'll try to write something with the client each day, although Sluggo is not fond of the client. I probably won't have time to make comments. And, I'll have to forget about the rest of the Internet. Drat. I guess I'll be watching more television for the next few days, and maybe writing a bit of e-mail, and getting my pictures organized. I just know I'm going to have Internet Withdrawal symptoms. Stupid metered service. (Yeah, I know. What the hell can I expect for $4.95 a month?)
Someday, I will have broadband, or DSL, or maybe even a wireless connection, given to me by the monkeys who will fly out of my butt.
