Dreamless Nights

Since I got my iPod video my nights or sleeps have never been the same again. Earlier, I would sleep until morning with songs playing into my ears. (did I tell you that it will take 7 days to complete a cycle of my collection of songs on my iPod?!) :-) But now, I've been experiencing intermittent sleep at nights... it's like 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hour sleep then awake by 15-30 minutes, then sleep again then awake again then sleep again then awake again until I'm fully awake to go to work.

Reason why? I just found this cooooooooooooooooooool blog which allows you to download movies including those haven't been released in cinemas. But, the tricky part is you have to download from Rapidshare and as a non-paying user, you can only download 1 file at a time. One movie usually is broken into 7-8 parts (due to the maximum of 100Mb upload in Rapidshare).

And, depending on traffic, time of downloading and connection speed, one part could take between 40 minutes to 3 hours to download. And, I can only do this between earliest on 7.30 pm to 7.15 am on weekdays. So, when one part of downloading is done, you have to get the second part and key in the pass key and where to save before it starts to download. No automation of process here!

So, it'd take me 2-3 weekdays to download a movie and I've so much to catch up with what the blog offers. Until I've done my catching ups, I'd be sleeping this way and my notebook by my side.

Guess what, I've watched Wild Hogs and TMNT before everyone seen it in cinemas! That's one reason why now I don't drive to go back to my hometown... more time to watch movies on my iPod.

The link to this site is on my "Bloggers - Endless List" roll. And remember this... RESET YOUR MODEM. It'll save you lots of time and days of downloading! Why?! Go figure!
