I have broadband. Now what?!

Hmm. After exactly a year without broadband I have got myself reconnected.

Unfortunately I don’t know what to do with it now! I’ve spend a year connecting via my mobile in a 2G area: Think 56 Kbps modem, occasionally peaking at 5.9 KB / second, though most of the time getting less than 1. I get better connectivity on the (above ground part of the) underground and on the M6.

So now everything I’ve got used to doing at home can be done in ten minutes rather than more than an hour, I found myself just sitting there last night thinking, “what did I actually used to do on the internet?”. I checked out youtube: how do people spend so much time there?  I headed over to facebook to see what’s changed: I remembered the original reason I never really used it. I flicked up Front Row and started watching film trailers: That’s actually quite entertaining. However, there must be more!

Is instant messaging still used? I prefer the phone!

Are there any decent (legal) music and film download sites yet?

What do you do on your broadband?!
