Unlearning Frugal Internet Habits
YouTube at 240p, video blocking plugins to prevent sites from autoplaying HD video, torrenting movies onto a thumb drive at work so I can watch them at home… Those were easy habits to end, but now there’s that lingering feeling of paralyzing dread each time I want to click on a link.
“Is it going to be worth it?”
Of course you should always ask this question when surfing the internet. I think that’s one thing being on a metered network indirectly taught me. Wasting bandwidth on crappy content doesn’t just use up a limited resource, it uses up my time, and my time is more valuable than the internet.
But still, I need to loosen up. I’ve got a terabyte data limit now, and I’m still only using about a gigabyte per day… which is what I had available to me using a mobile carrier! But who knows, maybe I’ll surprise myself and download a few new distros and try out some new flavors of Linux.
Then again, maybe I’ll subscribe to Hulu’s live TV or something else… I dunno… Maybe I just won’t bother worrying about it.
So once again, no one sent in any jokes… Well, except for Glenn. So I wasn’t going to do this, but it looks like he’s got some new jokes. Brace yourselves though… He’s the prurient one. If your delicate disposition can’t handle naughty blue humor with unashamed F bombs, you might want to steer clear of this place for a while. The submission page is a great way to bring family friendly jokes back to this site. You can also send jokes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for stopping by, and let’s hope George comes back soon.
