Well, because I downloaded the DirectX SDK (April 2005) and went over my monthly traffic limit,
I have been running uTorrent just because I can,
because of this, Xtra has squashed my bandwidth down to 6KB down 8KB up, so the WWW is slow,
So I have been connected to work via the VPN (to sync the codebase via svn), and remote desktopped onto the build machine and my machine to build the software and test my current bug.
Surprisingly, things (the UI experience) are manageable.
So I’m posting this from work (but at home) because I can (and the VPN blocks all Internet access while connected).
That seems to be the justification for a lot of geeky things.
