Yeah, so tell us about some? They all allow you to download very little, unless you pay for it - if you don't you can download once an hour something like that. Knowing google, there won't be such limits.
Luxury! I wished I had a helmet many of the times I made an error whilst on my scooter.
I think classification is a big reason for the apparent increase in autism and Asperger's syndrome. Years ago a person could just be a little weird, now its always a medical condition. And even severely autistic people might not be classified as autistic, even if they were locked away and drugged because of it.
That said, I'm not questioning that it really is increasing also. Our environment has been changing rapidly. And childhood has changed a lot.
And this is why in australia all of our ADSL/Cable plans have "shaping" you get your allotment (usually in peak/offpeak GB per month) and once you go over it they "shape" your previously 24mbit** connection to 64 or 128kbit/s.
This means your monthly bill is a flat cost but if you accidentally stream too many movies off xbox live or something you will be back in dialup land till the end of your billing cycle or decide to upgrade to a more generous plan.
Our ISPs got slapped about 7 years ago for selling "unlimited" plans that had hidden smallprint limits in the acceptable useage policy (some of them defining abuse by being in the 98th percentile) as it was found to be illegal by the consumer watchdog.
** 24mbit is actually an average of 15mbit due to the nature of ADSL2+
It's woefully underused, probably at least partly due to the cost of printing in color for dailies. Maybe going digital will actually inspire them to do better, like the Boston Globe's wonderful Big Picture blog.
Welcome to civilisation! (-:
You mean where many shops (mostly food related) don't support EFTPOS and I have to regress back to carrying cash everywhere? Where my power gets cut off for 3 weeks because when we requested the name be changed on the account they thought it meant "please disconnect me, I don't like electricity"? Where my ISP tells me to contact my modem provider and my modem provider tells me to contact my ISP because the two aren't compatible with each other (and most other ISPs don't service the exchange)? I'm not sure I like civilisation, give me grass skirts any day
Note: In a show of tolerance I havent mentioned sheep even ONCE!
Note: The tolerance seems to have expired
I don't get the obsession with the sheep jokes. There are more sheep in Australia than in New Zealand.
