I'll be away for a while

Due to some chi-bai circumstances, I am effectively without an internet connection till the end of the month. Or, more accurately, every Mb i download will cost me $0.15.

Yeah, Telstra's Bigpond ISP is a fucker. The new unlimited download package will commence next month. In the meantime, I'll use the internet connection in the university's libraries or the council library.

Updates (7th April 0120):
I've taken to limited browsing and surfing with images turned off. So I only see text, no pictures. The effect is quite dramatic.

I'm alive!
Bah. Wankers.

I shall forward this complaint to my friend who works in Telstra. Seriously. Send me an email. lol.

So have fun. Cut and paste entries like how I did when I didn't have internet and try not to get blogging-withdrawal syndrome :)

Switch to one of the smaller companies if you can. Telstra and Optus broadband packages all just suck blood off consumers. :p

Yee Hou:
Yeah, sucks worse than a 5Hp vacuum cleaner.

I will not fade away. I can assure you i have been writing in styles I have not used for many months.

TQ for the offer. I'll put in on hold for a while.

It sucks. Actually, as Cynical Idealist says, the small firms give better service. The Telco use their brand name to sell to the more illiterate.

Long story...

It was challenging, i can assure you.

Cynical Idealist:
Can't at the moment. Again, its a longish story.
