Such short posts

Since we moved this summer, we have had extremely limited internet. It means that we get 60 GB per month, which gives each of us a bit more than 200 megabytes of data per day.

That is not much data.

It means that I use my phone and the kids use a single computer. We have no Minecraft, no Netflix, no YouTube. (Well, maybe a little YouTube. But with only 200 MB, not much!)

This is both good and bad, but mostly bad. I have friends with similar bandwidth diets who have no trouble with it, but they have much smaller and younger families. It simply will not work for us but we have essentially no alternatives - the only other option is a T1 line at around $660 per month.

Since I don't use the computer much, most of my typing is done on this phone. It's certainly better than nothing but it is not ideal. I guess my point is this: have pity on me and my autocorrect typos, and also don't judge me by my brevity.

I guess that's it for now.
