. . . is about as close a disassociated geek can get to real emotional trauma. The screenshot below is what my life looks like at the moment – three browser tabs all silently churning away pulling down data at a raw 33.6Kbps.
I’ve been waiting for my Internet service provider (featured in the lower right of the picture above) to get my ADSL connection transferred across from my previous address. On the bright side – at least I don’t have to dial-in with GPRS anymore – that was really bad.
My main concern is still that iiNet might turn around and tell me that broadband is not available to us – at which point I don’t know what I will do. Someone suggested DSL Direct from Optus – but how does that get over the problems that ADSL would have?
