Watching the little circle spin ...


I went over my limit on my internet service. Sure they say unlimited, but after 10G they reserve the right to go from 4G to 3G. Obviously, 3G means the 'thinking' circle will spin on the screen until you just say, "To hell with it!" and shut it off. I get so far and then the spinning begins. So this is my lot for the last week of every month? How lovely. I can check my email and check my blog. Too many clicks and turning, turning, turning ...
 I suppose this will be my post for the weekend.



At the moment, we have no major plans for the weekend, or Easter. I have already eaten my chocolate egg ... Guess I better find some little hobby to spend my time. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your friends and family!

  1. "The Wheel Of Doom" That little, spinning, rainbow of colors. LOL

    A question... Do you Clean Out History and Chache, often? We need to do that, to free up the memory, which is used, to keep all those places-we-have-clicked-on, while on our computers... I do it, every time I got off the computer.

    I am on an old iMac, so my Place-To-Clean-Out-History, etc., is in a different place, than on a Pc. And then I have to close Firefox, my server. (I guess Firefox is my server, I am still not knowledgeable of all these terms) My deletion of History, will not work, till I close my Server.

    But please, find this stuff, on your computer. And Please learn to Delete It. It may make a difference.

    "The Wheel Of Doom" may have something to do with, all the space used up, with all your History.

    Whatever... It might help... :-))))

    Happy Easter,
    Luna Crone

    1. Maybe, if you cleaned it daily, it might help? Maybe... Maybe....

      If it does, great. If it doesn't, go back to weekly. :-)

      Then again, maybe this has nothing at all, to do with your issue!!!! I should not be giving ideas, at a distance.

    2. Not clearing cache and cookies etc can slow down the operation of your computer, but has nothing to do with going over your data allowance limit.

  2. Internet can be so frustrating.
    Happy Easter.

  3. I always thought that Wheel of Doom had more to do with how many people were using the internet on your line at the same time. I know there are certain times of the day when I get it more than others.

    1. That may have something to do with it sometimes, just probably not, in my case.

    2. I have slower access between 8am and 10am when thousands of local businesses are all firing up their computers and again between 4pm and 6pm when they are all signing off and shutting down again. Weekends are no problem.

    3. I have a little problem when the kids get home from school, haha, nothing big though.

  4. I can't grip about my internet. Living in a country it's hard to find services what one needs, at fair price.
    I pay $60 a month for my internet and I only get one mg.

  5. Oh goodness I know EXACTLY what you mean! Until this past year we had either no internet or incredibly limited internet. (Living in the country). It takes some getting used to.

    1. I used to be stuck on dial-up and I saw lots of the thing circling round and round. "V" has just slowed me down. It should be okay again after my monthly date.

  6. OOPS.....you must operate from you phone. Not me, I use my laptop for blogging cause I require, just because I like it a BIGGER screen to view. I hardly do anything on my phone except call, text and every so often post on facebook. Take care and have a great Easter....oh and by the way, I too ate a chocolate egg. Being I am still not supposed to have that stuff since my surgery I have paid all afternoon with an upset tummy. But...it was good at the time.

    1. I wouldn't have the first clue how to do it on my phone. I do it on my laptop.
      I know they warned you about the odd food - I do understand though, feel better soon.

    1. I am still on, until the spinning starts again. I just can't trust it right now. No videos, no big pictures, no real decked out blogs right now.

  8. Oh my, who do you have Internet service with?

    1. Verizon. Yep when they say they will slow you down, they aren't whistling Dixie. :-)

  9. So that's why the spinning circle goes on and on?
    I haven't bought any Easter eggs this year. No matter what the brand, none tastes the same as it used to. The quality just isn't there. I could have bought some from the Haigh's shop in the city, but forgot to stop there last Thursday and of course they were closed yesterday and there's no way I was travelling that far this morning after sleeping in until almost 10am.

  10. We know all about the "unlimited/limited data" at our house. I'm not sure if Carl has gotten that all sorted out or not. I've not gotten any texts telling me I'm about to run out, so maybe he has. I hope you can find a solution for your "data" too!

    Thank-you for your friendship, and I hope you have a great weekend!!

  11. Verizon sold ours to another provider and we have been slow ever since, even though all of their tests claim nothing has changed.....

    Happy Easter

    1. Oh dear, that's all we need, is something like that. We just changed to this 'unlimited' deal last month. Thanks for your input.
      Happy Easter.
