Hello DW

Apr. 10th, 2010 12:52 am

So, I got a DW account. It's not that I now magically know the difference between DW and LJ except that LJ is so 2004 or whenever. However, I got to feed my social media addiction and show how oh so progressive and diversity-loving I am. That has to be sung to the tune of Tom Lehrer's National Brotherhood Week, of course.

I am yet another woman with disabilities, and I'm here to prove that at least some institutions, at least in my country, have computers. I am not sure when or what I will be writing here though, since I have too many blogs to keep up with already. I'm also not yet sure whether I will write publicly or not, so if I know you (online, that is), or you think I should, just drop me a comment and I might put you on my access list.

My mobile Internet service provider is rather weird. I have a special student contract by which you pay only E19.95 for unlimited data transfer while within the Netherlands. It is called "Carefree", and until now, that's what I thought it was. Yesterday, however, for whatever reason, I kept getting warnings that I'd exceeded my data use limit. I checked the limits settings and found out there's a limit of 400MB set. Internet still works, but I feared that after having exceeded the limit, I'd get to pay like E0.25 per MB or something, even though it wasn't in the contract.

Long story, which included lots of phone calls to the company, short: the contract indeed grants me unlimited data transfer. I can set my own limits and warnings, but they have nothing to do with the bills. Now I will have to see for myself of course whether I truly don't get huge bills. Too bad I won't see that till the end of the month. Just in case, I will be saving money to pay an exhorbitant Internet bill anyway.
