Lately, I've been hitting my 1Gb Bandwidth Limit around the 30th or 31st of the month. Today, I hit it early.
Time to grovel to the host and ask "may I have a bit more, sir?" in my best Oliver Twist voice. Turns out we struck a deal on an annual rate for a monthly 3Gb bandwidth rate.
I feel embarrassed sometimes when I see the site going Bandwidth Exceeded. It's not like there's a lot of people that regularly read my stuff, but I feel bad that I could keep the site alive for everyone that wanted to stop by here.
Anyway, that should be a bit better for a while...
Did you know that today is the worst day of the year?
No, I'm not saying for me - I'm saying that some scientist at Cardiff University actually came up with a bloody formula to calculate the worst day of the year!
And yes, it's today.
It seems to have some flaws, though... Christmas is a variable (what if you weren't Christian?) and you had to have attempted to quit a bad habit, like someone with a New Year's Resolution (like we ALL, do that, right?), and since weather is involved, it seams this only applies to people living in the Northern Hemisphere.
Oh, and it was coincidence that it fell on a Monday this year.
And I wonder if it has anything to do with being near National Pie Day, which was last Friday?

The formula is:
1/8W+(D-d) 3/8xTQ MxNA.
d: Money due in January pay
T: Time since Christmas
Q: Time since the failure to quit a bad habit
M: General motivational levels
NA: The need to take action and do something about it
