For the last couple of days we have had no internet access, because we have used up our 2 Gig limit.
This means that we cannot use e-mail or any other services for one week out of four, and so if anyone wonders why we haven't responded to e-mails etc, that is why.
There seems to be an idea the "broadband" means unlimited access, and so people scoff at complaints about sending e-mails with HTML codes that take up ten times the space of the message text, and things like that. I've never looked at YouTube videos that people put in ther blogs, or refer to in e-mails, and newsgroup postings, and we still run out of bandwidth.
Of course part of it is spam, but the fact is that bandwidth is not unlimited, even in these days of high-speed connections.
