Hi All,

NetSpeed offer free downloads on their Transact and (new) ADSL services
between midnight and 7:00am.  If anyone would like something I would be glad
to download it for you.  They also have a VPN option that gives you
'unmetered' traffic within their network no matter what your connection
method is.  It costs $4.95 a month on top of whatever plan your on.

I'm happy to pay the five bucks to work from home without impacting my
download quota.  (Besides, the office pays for it anyway!)

Cheers and Merry Christmas,
