RIP Internet
April 16, 2005

Yesterday was a sad day, the internet died. After doing some quick troubleshooting I figured out that it was a Shaw problem, not a me problem. After talking to the helpdesk guy for 30 minutes and explaining that yes I have rebooted my computer, he finally figured out that I had been cut off and that I would have to speak to the "bandwidth department". Apparently we had done about 79 gigs of traffic in March, and that is a nono (the monthly quota is 20 gigs). After calmly explaining that I only have a 1Gb hard drive, and only use the internet for sending email, they turned my internet back on. Apparently I have some sort of spyware, or virus or something. They also think someone might be stealing my wireless. I'm going to have to see if someone can look into that for me. Does anyone know a good computer fixer guy?

Mottie, www.lavasoftusa has the best shareware I've seen. It solved a similar problem like yours at work. I also have it for home, try it out if you don't already have it.

haha, I was being sarcastic, sorry if that didn't come across. I work with computers, networks, etc for a living :)
