    Next month you'll find out it's not free. No so hooray....

    Seriously, check your plan. The fees for data transfer via cell phones can be quite high.

    Aye, T2Bruno is right watch out ! I use mine only in emergency situation like last week when my ISP decided to do maintenance on the cables just outside our apartment building. Don't know about you but I get a single go per month, I certainly couldn't do any heavy downloading like netflixing or online gaming.

    Anyway... spring is upon us yayness ! My allergies have also come back unyayness. No matter what brand of anti-allergies medication I use they inevitably fail. It is frustrating. I blame my mother's gene for passing on to me this trait. Why allergies to certain flowers' seeds only affect some humans and not all of us ? I'm intrigued.

    I checked 'em out already, relax folks :D

    It's unlimited, but I get my speed throttled if I abuse it. Probably not a good idea to log onto WoW earlier, on reflection...

    I'm not broke but drunk.

    Bought four interesting beers today and I am at Nr.3 so far ... empirics at its best. Positively fascinating.

    Is there a country with brown, green, and yellow in its flag? 'Cos I've been coughing up stuff like that and it would make a great patriotic photo on somebody's wall.

    Come to think of it, few countrie seem to have brown in their flags...I wonder why that is.

    At the hospital. Wife is in labor with our third son. It will probably be a few hours yet before she gives birth. We're 10 days ahead of schedule!

    Fun times!

    Well...yeah! Of course he is. You don't think he is actually thinking straight right now, do you 8? When my wife was brought in for an emergency c-section, the first three things to pass through my mind were "Oh crap, who's going to make dinner if we're all at the hospital?" "I wonder if the baby will be all slimy?" and "I'm goingto need a few beers when this is over". None of which helped my wife out. You just lose you mind for a few minutes. I thought it was Internationally accepted that we lose our minds when our wives are brought in for delivery?

    Good luck Marceror. Best Wishes and Congrats on the new addition!

    I'm jealous, as you Mind-Flayers can assimilate the newborns to the collective mind instantly with your psionic abilities. Basically, you should be able to understand their baby-talk!.... How many times did you ask your wife when wathcing your newborn,"I wonder what he is thinking?" You'll have to let us know your newborns first thoughts.... :D

    Thanks for the well wishes everyone. Not to worry 8. My wife is just over a foot away from me, enjoying the benefits of her epidural, and more asleep than awake.

    We've been at the hospital for more than 7 hours, and I've spent maybe an hour online total -- around 30 minutes attending to some work related stuff, and around 30 minutes surfing the net. If I wasn't doing this, I'd be contemplating my navel, so it's not like I'm neglecting something important.

    My wife's labor this time involves intense contractions but a very slow dilation of her cervix, and her water hasn't even broken yet. So it's what you call a slow labor. Plus, she developed a minor infection during her pregnancy, so she was injected with an antibiotic that requires 4 hours to fully run its course.

    At a certain point they will start helping my wife to coax along the process, but for the time being, all is quiet, and I have a little time to work and post here. :)

    Oops... here's the doctor and the nurse... might start heating up!!!!!!

    Marceror, I'm sure your wife appreciated your presence and support, as well as your willingness to discuss her cervix with people worldwide!

    In all seriousness, dude, congrats! Babies are awesome! Best of luck to all of your family.
