About
Hi, my name is Skid Row Trash. I have been gaming and creating add-ons and mods for games since I was 11. I'm 30 now, and I still love gaming. My first gaming system was a NES, followed by a Sega Genesis. After that, I got the Sega CD. I think I am one of the few that actually enjoyed the hell out of that system. I had to replace my Sega Genesis once because of problems, and had to replace my Sega CD 3 times, and repair it once. My first computer ever was a 386 with a huge 40mb hard drive, dos, and eventually windows. Started out playing games like wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, and the list really is endless.. Civ 1..

After this I got a SNES. What a fun system. This was soon after followed by a Nintendo 64, and eventually a PS1 and Gamecube. I had to exchange my PS1 once because it broke. After that I had a PS2, and an Xbox. I loved both those systems so much. I had to replace my PS2 3 times, and my Xbox 3 times due to hardware problems.

These days, I am gaming on Xbox 360, and PC. I don't bother with PS anymore because I have large hands and their analog sticks are way too close. I find both thumbs fighting each when trying to play anything on a playstation these days and much prefer the improved analog stick setup that Xbox 360 has.

I am currently on my 6th Xbox 360, and have Kinect as well.

My first one died from disc tray problems.
My second one I had Nyko Intercooler which actually melted into my xbox 360 and the 2 seperate things became 1 single entity.
My 3rd Xbox was a red ring of death
my 4th Xbox eventually wouldn't even turn on.
my 5th xbox still sorta works, but the disk tray takes like 40 tries to open and takes more and more time each attempt. Also when the door is closed it things the door is open, and thus I can't launch any games.
my 6th Xbox 360 was to replace my last one, but at the same time I wanted to have the most recent so I got a kinect package. Also, this is the first time I have had the ability to use HDMI with my Xbox 360, because all 5 xboxes I had before they kept sending me old units with only Component video.

anyways, I am a real big time gamer and like to try all games (except for sports because well.. sports are weak).

Hey everyone, first off, this is (I think) only for people in Canada.

I have been going over my bandwidth cap of 120 GB / month for the past few months, and sometimes it is about $50 extra on top of the bill when it's time to pay up. It sucks. I have recently been looking into upgrading my account.

Oh I should mention I use Rogers.

I was checking out their prices and packages.

Currently, I am on their Extreme Package.

Up to 35 Mbps download speed ---- Up to 3 Mbps upload speed ----- 120 GB monthly usage allowance.
for $64.99 / month

I was interested in their Extreme Plus package, it is as follows.

Up to 45 Mbps download speed ---- Up to 4 Mbps upload speed ----- 150 GB monthly usage allowance.
for $74.99 / month.

That sounded pretty good, a little faster, and 30 GB more a month for only 10 dollars more. I called them up to order, and just out of the blue I asked if there was anything else I could get..

There was actually, but it was not listed anywhere, but here it is people.
I stayed on my Extreme Package with current speeds, but for $10 more a month... I now have a bandwidth cap of 999,999 GB per month..

That's right! Just shy of a million gigs a month, for an extra 10 bucks! I couldn't believe it. Anyways, as this was such a shock to me, I thought I should mention it here. WIth bandwidth requirements constantly rising something like this might be worth it. With talk of PS4 Possibly streaming 4K video at 100GB/movie or more... yeah this is awesome. I know I am going to make a great use of it, (Apr 22, 204GB used so far). My speed is very fast too, and the extra bandwidth for that price is FAR more value than upgrading everything slightly.

You guys should give them a call and ask about it if you have problems going over your limits. I'm so happy right now!
