bandwidth

Playing Catch Up


As I mentioned in a recent post my bandwidth was shaped as I had exceeded my monthly allowance – which meant the Internet was pretty much unavailable for me over the last few days. I have just received my monthly ‘restart,’ so back online and posting in my Blogs. Of course, I’m now playing catch up with posts in my various Blogs, working through copious numbers of emails, etc. The dreaded catch up after being offline for a bit.

I will try and get back into the swing of things as quickly as possible.

That Time of Month


Well, it’s that time of month when I’m struggling with bandwidth. The last couple of months have been good, but I’m about to crash and burn with the amount of available bandwidth that I have. I have been trying to get enough Blog posts ready for every day until my total allowable bandwidth is renewed (next Monday). However, I’m not going to quite make it. The very slow download speed makes it virtually impossible to achieve anything. So I expect I’ll be offline quite a lot.

New Computer


Finally I have the new computer up and running – every so often I find I don’t have a program installed that I did on the other computer and set out to get it installed. It is fantastic though to have a very reliable computer again. All of the system updates, software updates, etc, are eating up my monthly bandwidth allowance though and I expect some Internet connectivity issues when I get shaped prior to the end of this bandwidth month. It’s going to be a very close thing and will probably impact on my posts yet again. Still, from the start of the next cycle all should be fairly regular again, which will be good.

Great Free Web Host


For today’s ‘daily,’ I have a link to a great site that offers free web hosting with no advertising. It also gives you 5000MB of space and 50 000MB of free bandwidth a month. But it gets better still, as you can also have as many accounts as you like.

So if you have always wanted to have a go at building a web site, what a great opportunity to do so. If you want to have a look at a free site, I have set one up as a ‘portal’ for my online presence on the World Wide Web. View my site at:
