Five days after I bought my notebook and frustrations are coming in. I mean, I do love my notebook and I appreciate the perks of having my own PC. For one, I won't have to go to the office or rent in computer shops for me to be able to write whatever's required for work. I come from a 3rd world hometown and believe me, owning a notebook is luxury. However, the Internet connection is a different matter. Dial-up is painstakingly slooow! What more, I'm ending up spending more than what I usually spend in cyber cafes. Our boarding house only has PLDT Teletipid phone so aside from paying for my PLDT Vibe card, I also pay for the prepaid phone card. The value of a P300 card only lasts for more than 3 hours. Argh!
Right now, I'm thinking of options to alleviate my "geeky" problem and I need your help fellow geeks!:) If you were I, what should I do? You have to realize that my job is unstable - meaning, this month I could be rich, the next day I could be penniless. (If you're a regular reader of my blog, you know what I mean.). Also, I just live in a temporary abode and while I have no plans of transferring to another house (or to another Philippine island, heh!) in the near future, I think this factor should still be considered. HELPPP! :)
Can I just say I really hate myself when I'm being trivial with my concerns like what I'm currently whining about? There's poverty around you Teddy, ugh! Okay, this is O.T. :)
ETA: I just realized the cheapest solution to this petty problem is just to have a regular phone line connected to the boarding house. Nuff said. :)
