I didn't get to watch the State of the Union address last night.

Since my Viasat plan is slow in the evening, I am about to set Playon to record the speech from YouTube before I go to work.  My Liberty 12 plan works awesome during early morning and in the day until 5pm.

I'll then watch the recording sometime tonight, while everyone else is complaining about Viasat being slow in the evening.  Its nice being able to record stuff for later viewing.

Like my first car, a 52 Hudson, i knew it would use about a quart of oil every week.  I didn't stop driving, i just kept an eye on the oil level and added as necessary.

You deal with what you have until something better comes along, either with Viasat, V2??? or another company.

Hang in there another week or two things may get better.

If I record Facebook and Twitter during the day, will it be in real-time when I watch it later that evening?

Maybe I’ll record the weather and hope it doesn’t change.

In all seriousness it is a smart use of limited data, but not the way people live now that are hip. Get with the times Louisiana man.

Just got home from work.  The State of the Union address is sitting on my server and is taking up 2.23 GB of space.

I'm going to go pickup a pizza before I start watching it.  It looks like its going to be a long movie.

Thanks for the pep talk Johnny, but i really don't want to switch over to Viasat 2. 

I am paying $60.99 a month for unlimited data on a Liberty 12 plan.  I'm a happy camper. 

My billing cycle restarts on the 4th and I am currently at 136 GB for the month.  I really have no reason to switch to another plan.

State of the Union address streamed flawlessly from my Playon/Plex server tonight. Had four slices of pizza and two breadsticks. Water was my beverage.

Less than four hours remaining until it is February on the east coast.
