well when 1 movie is like 700mb, you only 100mb left for gaming and surfing, I couldn't function on that, youtube would eat that in ten minutes, so maybe you use it a lot less then you think, I downloaded like 50 gb last month in shows and movies and my 200gb was gone in like 16 days streaming tv and video

Well I'm one of those people who you think is stupid, but I do live in a rural area so the service from every one else is dismal. On the internet front I could get more downloads from another company but the few I tried ripped me of by saying I was on a cap but charging me standard rates on top of the cap (AAPT) and if I move to another house they treat as breaking the contract and charge me extra (westnet), and the bloody mobiles, telstra works every where with a next g phone, and good reception on digital out of town, I had a vodaphone, virgin and Crazy johns and their signal would die as soon as leave a town. Plus because my bills a paid on time they give me discounts, happy to add and change a plan for me, the service from them has been awesome, especially when I was a bit younger and some times struggled to pay bills I could ring them and other to pay it of in instalments, unfortunately AAPT wouldn't give us the same option, even though I couldn't pay it because it was too high because of there fuck up. The idea of keeping the copper lines is a brilliant one, especially in the country where we have quite a few power failures and the phones just keep working wich is an absolute releif when I have small children, I pay more but moneys no substitute for service and reliability IMHO.

Thats exactly what I was thinking, and the fact they kept mentioning LOD, just change the L to a N, the brotherhood of NOD are are about to attack and these Tesla Coils are the perfect defense. Just need a fleet of mammoth tanks with 2 turrets and a set of rocket launchers each, a commando and a few battleships and we'll be fine

Same here, but I've installed xfce and am now tweaking it so its looks like gnome 2. Also i set my / drive as a separate partition too my home folder so when precise pangolin comes out I'm going to install Xubuntu instead of Ubuntu and try and import my settings, I did try oneric but it seemed very buggy and slow, mind you I did install gnome shell and used fall-back mode which isn't as good as gnome 2 or even xfce for that matter, can't stand Unity, to much like OSX, window controls should be on the window not the task bar, well when your a heavy mouse user like me anyway. Another thing I like about xfce is my two screens have different wallpapers which I really like.
