Back on dialup …

Hmmmm … ( to be read as a very depressed sigh … )

After a month of cruising along in what our govt calls broadband … its that time of the month again when all the past days’ “bandwidth spendthrift attitude” comes back and hits you where it hurts …

I’ve got the BSNL 256 K home plan, which comes with a 1 GB download limit …
1 GB ???
Who in the right head comes up with these plans ?
Aren’t people not allowed to come in to work drunk ? What about doped ?

Seriously …
We have night time free … yeah …
Or call it early morning free … from 2 friggin’ AM to 8 AM …
These timings are making a moron out of me …

Last month, nothing major was happening, so I managed to cut down till about 970 Meg by the month end …
This time with seminars, all the papers to download and research, and by the end of the month, my XBOX got dinked …
More research and frantic searching ensued …
( But I got it up and running finally last night … yay !!! )

But with 940 MB gone and 4 days to take out on a 60 MB, I’m just holding on … for a rainy day …
If any of you’ll will need me, I’ll be on dial up for a couple of days …
( BSNL charges 1.2 bucks per MB of download !!! )
It’s kinda nostalgic you know … That 3 tone buzz that comes out of the modem when you try to connect … the 30 seconds !!! that you need to connect …
And the best things are the ultra variable connecting speeds ( mostly due to the awesome quality of phone lines that the same morons from BSNL put up )
As of now, I have successfully connected after 7 tries at 9.6 kbps !!!

Thats me signing off …

And yeah, if you are from BSNL and reading this, please grow a brain !
