Grounded

/ posted in: General

My internet access was cut off this weekend. Seems we use too much time. I didn’t even know we had a time limit and was just leaving it connected. Now I have 5 hours of time until Feb. 1. That is more than enough but just having the time limit is making me feel like I need to stay on.

That’s the only bad thing about living out here. Dial-up only. No plans to ever put in high speed access. I don’t even live all that rurally. There are about 10 houses on my mile-long road and lots of houses on the main roads. But, no cable and no DSL. I could get a satellite internet service but it isn’t actually that fast and costs at least $100 a month. I guess I’m just going to have to keep going to the library any time I want to download anything. What a pain.
