Early Christmas Present

iiNet just bumped up my monthly quota by another 60GB.  Despite downloading Dragon Age and Mass Effect on Steam and all five Debian DVDs, I didn't hit my quota last month, so I don't know what I'll do with it all.  (Actually, about 40% of the Steam downloads and all of Debian came from iiNet's free zone and didn't count against my quota anyway.)

Well, I could go down to the next cheaper plan and still have more bandwidth than I did after the last increase, or go down two steps and have nearly as much bandwidth as when I signed up.

Or I could subscribe to every podcast on the planet, rather than (as now) only half of them.

Or I could just run daily off-site backups of the whole of mu.nu and mee.nu.

Decisions, decisions...

If they'd done this two days ago I would have had the extra 60GB for last month as well...  And would have had to somehow use it all in a day.  Oh, and they don't count uploads at all, so seeding torrents is out.

They've also bumped the shaped speed (what you get when you exceed your quota) from 64k to 128k.  Still really really slow, but only half as really really slow as before.

1 I see that the Great Firewall of Australia is now the law of the land. What will you do if they blacklist mee.nu and mu.nu? (Maybe I should stop posting ecchi pictures!)

2 Not quite.  They haven't actually written the legislation yet, and they don't have the numbers to get it through the Senate in any case.  I expect a High Court challenge (Australia's equivalent of the Supreme Court) if it does become law.
