Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Okay, before I get to the problem, some background information. At home we're on an ADSL2+ internet plan with Telstra. Said plan has a set usage limit (20GB IIRC); once exceeded, you're charged extra for how much you go over by. I know, it's fucking criminal, but there's nothing we can do about it. Out of myself, my parents and my younger brother, only my technologically-challenged mother doesn't use the internet.
In the past there have been months where we went over, and every single time I've been blamed for it. Only a couple of times did I consider it to be the case; both those occasions I'd spent a good amount of time playing online and such. But in the past two months, I haven't even touched an online game, and in fact my overall web usage has gone down; I generally only browse PAF and a couple other sites (mostly PAF though).
So imagine my surprise last night when my father rung to inform me that we'd gone over. He then proceeded to inform me that I would be paying the extra (which I have absolutely no intention of doing), and generally acted as if I was the only person responsible. This morning he disconnected our router (not a major issue, I still have my iPhone), and seems intent on putting as much of the blame on me as possible.
tl;dr: we used too much internet, I don't think it's my fault, yet my dad acts like it totally is. Who is really to blame here, and what should I do about it?
