Hi. My name is Nikki and I'm addicted to downloading.
Things started out slowly. A song here, a movie there. Nothing serious. Then I found the K-Lite board and verified files, and my downloads started to climb. My bandwidth could no longer keep up with my downloading so I got and ULTRA high speed connection, to download more.
This continued on for month, one filesharing app after another, K-Lite, Soulseek, BitTorrent, FTP, IRC... until, finally, I had filled up every hard drive I had on my network. 400 GB worth. I had to start burning it all... then I had a thought... why not just get bigger hard drives? So after burning literally hundreds of CD's, I bought more hard drives and added them to the network. All was going fine, until I found that I had filled those up too. The problem was, I had no more drive bays in any of my computers. But I found a solution to that too. I started buying external hard drives.
Then the biggest roadblock of all. I had to move, and I couldn't take my ULTRA high speed connection with me. I had to slow down to 1mbps/128kbs... I was mortified. How would I ever cope? I couldn't sleep, I couldn't eat, I started shaking uncontrollably. The first week after my move was the worst. I was left with no internet connection whatsoever, and the withdrawl was unbearable. How to cope...
Two weeks later, I have started to calm down a bit having realized, I only have to put up with this for another month or so, and then I'll be moving to a new place, where 3mbps isn't just a dream, it's a reality. So now I just bide my time, waiting, watching, planning all my downloads carefully so as not to blow my bandwidth caps... until the day I'm free again.
Thank you for listening.
