    you might want to check when "off peak" is. It's not like other off peak. I think my mum's ISP off peak is midnight to 6am - not usual awake times.

    Some ISPs provide access to the ABC stuff "unmetered" ie you can watch as much as you like and it doesn't count towards your monthly download quota. Most ISPs provide a way to see how much you have downloaded so far - so you can see if you're using it up too quick. So you could have a movie / tv / youtube splurge at the end of your billing period.

    My off-peak time is 11pm to midday, so during peak I stick to a few sites that I know won't eat into my bandwidth. Sadly I don't get any unmetered usage! My ISP provides a meter that I've been keeping an eye on, had a shock the other day when after only 3 or 4 days I'd already used a third of my peak usage for the month - worked out it was all the windows updates that were downloading in peak times, I've changed the setting so I choose when to download now.

    Now I just have work out what I can rid of from all the pre-installed stuff. Won't get rid of anything until I know what the various programs are used for and if I really need them.

    I'm a night owl so the off peak times are not too much of a problem!

    ah, what is this folder "windows" I don't use it for anything - delete delete.

    The number of times I've heard this or variations on the theme and the user wonders why their computer doesn't work - or in one case -the entire hospital patient management system stopped working because the folder it was in - mapped to her "H" for Home drive. And that's when you find out how crap their back system is.

    At least your off peak is generous - compared to the unmetered thing. Windows updates peeve me right off, always slow my computer to a crawl - right when I want to be using it. And just for good measure, every now and again one of them cripples the computer. Oops Microsoft - test release? No? Not quite enough? really? So I usually wait a week before installing anything from Microsoft - so I can check for screaming first, ie let someone else experience the pain.

    Did anyone else notice some of the web went off air, like this website, around 8pm (or 8:30pm eastern)?
