2008 July 14 : Positive Peace

As much as I love the internet, it has always hated me. It runs away from me. Getting an ISP to connect me to the internet has always been more difficult for me than my neighbours.

I have tried all the major ISPs in the country at some point of time and also the local ones in my area and I must admit, nobody has given me unlimited broadband peacefully. I really don’t know what will it take.

I have given up on some ISPs and others have given up on me as I leech too much. I have blown cash every single month for the last 6+ years believing that the next connection I take will be better than the previous, but alas, they are all the same and I hate dealing with them.

I have finally concluded that I must accept the fact that on one hand I have access to the best bandwidth in the country at work and on the other hand I have the worst at home. What am I really supposed to do?

My current situation is almost depressing and super-frustrating. I hate sitting at the mercy of these ISPs. I am an addict and am craving for my drug here. I am addicted to the internet. I need my dose tonight. Why can’t I feed my harmless addiction in peace?

Am utilizing someone else’s home wifi to blog, mind you its not stealing. I could leech gigs if I wanted to, but at this moment, I am sad, and have no inclination to take more than what I need. Surely, few kilobytes to use WordPress will never hurt anyone.
