In a figurative way, of course.

Staff here already know that I have a download limit for every months. Thing is, I don't pay for anything, so I can't complain.

But that limit is 1GB per month, resetting on 17th of every months. Thing is, I've been 500mb for 6days (500mb every of those 6 days), now I'm at a point where I used twice what I'm normally using. For my internet, it costs around $30 (CND), plus $7.50 for every GB more. So it now costs twice the price.

So any thoughts on how I'm supposed to explain my usage of internet?

Keep in mind, I don't have any money,so I can't pay the overusage cost to compensate.

No idea.

Seriously though, you should look into subscribing to a new service. I've never known anyone around here that has these kinds of problems. (All my friends have DSL and Cable also)

Do you actually owe any money though?

Nope, not yet.

But I still have to wait until June 13th if I really want to change (1-year contract, ugh...).

...

The bill still gonna be $25 more than it should. And that sucks.

I'm so getting my T1 connection at the end of the summer.......

What exactly are you downloading that's doing all this so quickly?
(should I really ask? )

$25 isn't a whole lot of money. It's a good chunk, but maybe you could work it off over time or something so your parents, or whomever else won't be upset?

But yeah, just seriously get that T1 connection as fast as you can.

Meh, don't worry it's no porn. I'm downloading anime.

...

And I know $25 isn't alot, but I don't have a job, and I'm busy with school.

I'm probably gonna have to use my UBER diplomatic skills (if I may say so).

Well ... you could tell your parents that your an important staff member on XeoGaming and that you need to check up on the place regularly

I’m sure there are better deals out there that wont cost much but give you more time and space on the net

Download limit? There's still ISPs with download limits?

Like Xeo said, you can probably work off the $25 if your 'diplomatic skills' fail.

Deesse, that'd only work if they don't know a thing about computers - that is, they'll probably know that you don't need to download anything to visit a message board. But hey, if they really don't know much...

well, first off... even with a DL limit, you should've DLed anime in RM format instead of the high quality AVIs... if you did DL RM format, still that works out to about 9-10 eps a day. should've just DLed what you can watch, and not all at once =/ like i've got 5 anime i'm still working on and never the time to watch =/
second, you knew you had a limit -.-' so it's time to pay the piper, cause it's your own fault for not managing it well.
thirdly, who in the right mind subscribes to an ISP that gives you a limit these days? =/ i feel sorry for you, but you seriously could've prevented everything.

Oh, I do download in RM.

There isn't that much of a difference with AVI, anyway.

(To me, RM would be like OGG, and AVI is like WAV).

And if I Could've prevented something, I would.

But anything's better than being stuck with Dial-Up.

I'm really getting a better connection.

Heres a magical Idea: Try not downloading for once x-x

You can live without downloading animes. or just re-watch what you already have.

I thought OGG's were huge files themself? Or maybe I'm thinking of OGM's ... if there's a difference.

But yeah, have you watched all of the anime that you've downloaded? If not, you could probably take a break.

OGM - > Ogg Vorbis Video File (High Quality - Size)
OGG -> Ogg Vorbis Audio File (High Quality - Good compression)

And yes, watched all anime I downloaded (Download one episode, watch the episode while downloading the other).

Edit: Looks like I'M beginning to care less and less about what I'll be told (good or bad thing?)

I can't say.
I think I ask myself the same question.

I mean, we're older, right?

I'm still okay. Seems like it wasn't that much of a big deal.

But now it seems my ISP's DNS is acting like shit.

If you can actually afford a T1 line at the end of the summer, I will hate you... okay, I'll just be seriously envious of you. DSL is just fine for me, but yeah, free yourself from dial-up for it is evil. What ISP do you have anyway?

Videotron.

But it doesn't matter.

I decided that I wouldn't worry about going way over board.

If I earn my right to use that internet connection of mine, I guess my mother can't say a thing.

So yeah, case closed

Still, I'm guessing you'd still rather have a different ISP?

Yup, I even found a pretty good one. Just need to do some stuff before I plan on switching.
