So as some of you might know, my parents have the slowest internet physically possible, excluding dialup. It's one of the shitty DSL connections. It's so slow I can't even watch most livestreams, including day9. I can't buffer 360p video. Watching a youtube video makes any sort of online game unplayable. Torrenting makes the web inaccessible. Steam gets confused about download times, etc etc.
The piece of shit itself
My parents are always complaining about the internet, but don't want to do anything about it. I showed them http://speedtest.net/global.php#0 which obviously shows, INTERNET IN AFRICA IS FASTER THAN OURS. They were like ok, whatever, that sucks, but it's too expensive.
I talked to a Teletubby who informed me about triple and double plays. My parents easily shot this down, informing me we pay 21/month for internet, like 7 a month for phone, and 12 a month for cable rofl.
So then I looked at cable internet only, so I looked at the cheapest decent comcast, which is 43/month after the promotional period. Sure, damn expensive for 6/2, but it doesn't suck.
But one of the problems is in my area they only have AT&T and Comcast. Verizon is offered in the new part of town, which is like 30/month for 6/2, but it's not offered where we are. The government is letting there be a sorto f price fixing oligopolyist thing going on. Not sure waht to do. I have an absurd amount of money in the bank, but I"m not sure if I should spend 400/year for decent internet :/
In other news after having a breakdown last week I went to the library, talked to two awesome friends who helped me a lot, and one of them is an undisclosed tl member, so thanks My dad actually walked in on us, and deathstared, but I basically told him to fuck off and he left. He then told my mom I was with two guys, even though one of them is a fairly er, well developed girl lol.
And in bad news I think I may have depression. I'm no longer really hungry ever, I keep on being very tired even on a lot of sleep, and christmas came and went, and it felt like a regular day. Everything is routine. I wake up, get yelled at, study, do some stuff on teh computer, talk to friends, sleep, rinse, wash, repeat.
I probably ought to go to a therapist, but I'm not sure how to go about it. :/
