Thing is, my service went back to normal yesterday and the usage meter says I've already used 800MB. There's simply no way that's correct. I live on a pittance of a disability check, so I'm normally extremely cautious about what I do online so that I *DON'T* use up my monthly limit because this is an extravagance I can barely afford.
I downloaded three files yesterday - 125MB+73MB+28MB=226MB
I have my e-mail setup so that no mail downloads to my system that is larger than 200Kb, and the average mail size I get is ~10Kb and I get *maybe* 30 e-mails/day.
*ALL* the forums I belong to I have images and any animations blocked so that I *don't* have to worry about those using up my limit also (I'm on 3 forums).
I go to usually 6 different websites three to four times daily and have been doing so for years and have never had a problem with them using up any kind of bandwidth that would eat up anything more than a few MB's/day.
I use the Late Night freebie thing almost exclusively for downloading pretty much anything and everything (those downloads yesterday I *needed* at the time because I'd just recently don'e an upgrade of my Slackware).
I also use Linux and I have it set up that nothing goes out or comes in without my approval, so it's not a virus or malware or any of the crap that affects such useless OS's as Microslop.
Is there anyone who can look into this for me and/or figure out what's going on, please? I've just installed an app to record any downloads of *any* kind (including just websurfing and page loading etc) and adds it all up in a 24 hour period.
Thanks much for looking into this and any assistance,
