I changed ISP's at home to get rid of the old bandwidth cap I used to have at 40GB. Unlimited now.

There's a lot of good shit on tv that's worthwhile downloading.
I'm capped at 60GB, but I try to avoid torrents because should upload the same amount as you download, so a 700MB movie actually takes 1400. It's really hard to not go over my limit when I just got a 1TB hard-drive like a month ago though lol...Only like ~250GB left

That's why you do this dirty dirty deed called leeching, and leave those with giant bandwidth capabilities to do the uploading

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.
