Anger Strike Back!

It’s really been a long while self explosion anger on someone else. No not the kid I always complained about. I gave up on him already but another working colleague I know for long time which I will call him the ‘manager’ in this post. It truly strikes me it has to come down to this unreasonable and nonsense fighting at work. Of course, I am terrible person swearing and insulted him over the work issue recently.

Telbru Giving Free 10GB Anniversary

This morning I was shock when received Telbru email message saying I have 50% quota left. At first could be the torrent but it was impossible because I disable and block others using torrent at their PC. Secondly, some suspicious someone hacked into my router. No other mac address found in the list. So my last is to call immediately to report the issue. Well, it appears that Telbru giving a free 10GB quota for its anniversary. I’m not sure for anyone else but it was good. Still, the message need somewhat better way to separately its top-up quota warning in order to avoid misunderstanding in the future.
