Always looking to save some money, I was intrigued by the new STRAIGHT TALK line of prepaid cell phones available at Walmart. They have two basic plans. for $30/month its 1000 talk minutes, 1000 texts and 30MB of internet use. For $45 its unlimited for everything. So, is 30MB a lot or a little? I have always used a home based internet, so I never worried about the usage amounts. But since moving into the boonies, I decided it would be easier to get internet service through a phone, and use the computers at school if I really REALLY needed something that I couldn't access through a phone. So, how much is 30MB really? For somebody who isn't always online, but checks emails often and facebook often, is it enough?

Your over-the-top animated GIF of the boob squeezing woman is 660kb. If your phone doesn't cache it, then 50 page loads of this page would put you over.

Since they are charging you by the byte, I'd assume that they don't do anything in your favor like caching stuff, etc.

30mb is not a lot. It is a tiny, tiny amount.

30MB is about 5 or 6 good quality songs, if that helps as a point of reference.

30MB/month = 1MB (or less)/day

If you check Facebook often, you WILL average more than a megabyte a day.

Pssssst... Aaron is very passive aggressively telling you it's long past time to change that picture.

Hey, if you're gonna insist on a 660kb avatar, that's how you do it, not with some 3000x2000px image of Admiral Ackbar. I give you a pass.

As for the question at hand, I got nuthin.

I came off of "Dial-Up Mode" just to take a look at boob girl, and now she's gone. It's a sad day.

For great justice, check out the OP. She's still there for me.

Filename sez Cristina Basso. Who might be Cristina del Basso, as seen on Italy's version of Big Brother.





New for fall 2009: Moments In Random Quote Shame. From this post in 2004:

Well, why are we giving up THAT much for him? Rivers, this year's 3, and next year's 1 and 5? In the words of Anna Nicole Smith (according to Kathy Griffin), I don'like it. I would have rather seen us keep that pick and use it... on someone else (no, I don't know... maybe trade down) and try to get Losman late in 1 or early 2 (which wouldn't happen, thanks to the Bills).

"Him" = Eli Manning.
