I surf too much…

So I wrote awhile back about my internet solution for my temporary home and how fantastic it is.

Well, I ran into a problem: it has a 3GB per month limit and I hit the limit last week.

I’d been careful for the most part, but there’s a slight problem with iTunes: when I connect to the internet it goes hunting for the latest podcasts and downloads them automatically. I usually prevented this from happening, but not often enough because a number of podcasts would appear without me realizing it.

The clamp on my ‘net access at home will clear up Sunday.

In the meantime I am going to be out of the office and exploring the region with my guest, who returns to Berlin this afternoon.

  • No internet for a whole two days? It would give me a case of the vapors!

    doesn’t ur OSX firewall ask you before an app tries to connect to the internet? Then you could control iTunes’ access.
    I use Zonealarm, works perfect. I am not sure if its available for Mac.
