My game is being blamed for taking up bandwidth

  1. Hello I would like to know if this is really true or not.

    I play this MMO but rarely and I was told it takes up less than youtube.
    The friend I live with has limited Bandwidth and already 80% has been taken up. She told me the people she called said it might be my game but I knew for a fact it only takes up around 2.4MB and streaming movies or video's takes up A LOT more. When I tell her this though she acts like she didn't hear me and goes on to explain what is taking it up (My game)

    What I do on the PC daily:
    -check facebook
    -submit art to my deviantart
    -play my game maybe 2-3 times a week for 2hours.
    -stream an episode 1-2 times a week.

    What her husband does daily:
    -watch porn
    -watch more porn
    -watch even more porn and occasional pornographic pictures.

    What she does daily:
    -Plays a playlist on youtube 1-3 times a week
    -facebook; farmvill, frontiervill, treasure isle
    -plays games from bigfish
    -occasional reasearch
    -talks on MSN
    -she also has things like weather apps and calenders and the news too. would those take it up as well?

    I know some of my streaming is the problem but since she mentioned the bandwidth I haven't streamed anything. She also tells me percy has not been watching porn for a week or so but while she was out I needed the phone out of their room and percy was watching more porn.

    LOL - bit obvious whats to blame here ;)

    Gaming uses up VERY little bandwidth - it sends very small packets of info back and forth so its defo not the cause of her bandwith issues.

    You can even grab a free tool such as Networx and monitor your consumption. Your router's software might even monitor this already.

    lol.

    The wife is in denial over her deviant husbands porn fetish and has selected hearing. She plays farmville and other tedious games and loud music to mask the sound of the husbands porn fetish noises.....

    You need to tell her to monitor the baby oil and toilet tissue consumption which will give a clear indication as to what and who is taking up all the bandwidth.

    I hope this helps...... :eek:)

    Good luck!

    My, My, What a "Waist" of Bandwidth...........

    Well, I think we have a relationship based issue here.

    Ask yourselves, "why does the husband need to watch so much porn"?

    Then ask yourselves, "why does the wife have such a lurid interest in "Farmville"".

    You'd think they'd both have given it a rest yesterday due to Valentine's day but, noooooo. Or should I say, "mooooo"?

    I think they should both get out from behind the computer. Perhaps the mister could call an escort service, and the missus could take up golf. They tell me that's the quickest way to get a man's arms around you! Of course, with modern American women, you need a golf instructor with arms as long as a chimpanzee's, just to reach past her shoulders.

    Better still, they could find some common ground. For example, she might dress up in her best feedbag, while he ropes and rides her.......:rolleyes:

    I hope this helps.

    BTW, do you think you could keep the narrative in one person or another? It's rather difficult and silly to follow the plot when, "I am he, as you are we, as we are all together". (To loosely pinch a line from John Lennon).
