Honestly, living in Leuven, Belgium has its ups and downs. Leuven itself is a small city, with any thing I need and/or want being of walking distance. It takes roughly 20 minutes of walking to get from one end of the city to another, more or less.
The problem, and my main complaint here is of the internet service generously provided by the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL or Catholic University of Leuven in English, also I have no Flemish skills so I probably misspelled that) has a limit of 10 GB of download bandwidth and 1 GB of upload bandwidth. It could be manageable if only the bandwidth would be reset to 100% every month, but as it turns out that isn't part of the internet service that I am paying for (as to why I AM subjecting myself to this idiocy is a story best reserved for another moment). Indeed, the precious Megabytes I use to browse through Facebook, StumbleUpon, and Newgrounds (as well as online gaming) have to be carefully managed so as to not end up in zero. You'd be surprised how badly YouTube can eat up your bandwidth and how Webcam conversations on Skype (a must for speaking with overseas parents) and gobble it all up. It's not like I'll never get those Megabytes back again, after all that would be all to cruel. The spent bandwidth is slowly recovered throughout the day.
Basically, anywhere between 2-3% of 10 GB is restored every day. Now a week of barely any internet activity is a great way to infuse some much needed internet surfing, but the enthusiasm inherent in having stored so much will ultimately lead to the consumption of what has been saved and more in less than 20 hours. After all the internet IS saturated with information, some of it heavy handed and some of it light.
Either way, this internet service blows, and thank goodness I only have to deal with it for another 5 months.
