Take THAT internet quotas!


It got up to 3.12MB/s a few minutes ago, but my screenshot reflexes weren't fast enough. Screenshot Reflexes sounds like a terrible spaghetti western.

Anyway the point is we don't even have one of those expensive, super duper, ultra high speed connections here. More importantly what we do download doesn't get counted towards a stupid monthly internet quota! Without download caps, the whole internet experience changes. There's no bean counting. You don't have to toss up whether to get that latest Cranky Geeks or skimp on getting just the CD release of a distro instead of a DVD.

It's sad the likes of Comcast are starting to adopt this Aussie approach to the net. Say goodbye to online video streaming.
