----- Experience -----

I felt the speed of the Internet very slow this morning. So, I went to check the quota of the broadband internet on my account of the iiNet website and got to know that our usage quota of  Peak time has run out for this month. However, the quota of Off-peak time is in full quota state that means we nearly haven't used the quota of the Off-peak time. We should have downloaded during Off-peak time. Fortunately, today is the 24th March. We just have to endure two days for the slow speed of internet. Anyway, it's enough for me as I just write something on the gmail and my wife have download a whole comedy TV drama.

below is the usage breakdown:
Your quota will be reset at approximately one minute past midnight (your local time) on the morning of the 27th March.
Off-peak time is from 2am to 8am (your local time), which is typically when the network is less congested. If you live in NT, off-peak time will be based on Adelaide time.

trespassers & prosecuted

----- Experience -----
I went to next street to drive my car when I had finished my work. This morning, I went to work around 10am and as usual I couldn't find a place to park near the factory. Driving around for a while, fortunately, I found a place and parked there in the next street.

When I got through an alleyway to the next street, I caught sight of a caution on the fence of wall: 'trespassers will be prosecuted.'

----- Experience -----
One of my friends urged me to attend a free English course which is hold just at the church where is opposite my house. And then, the other of my friends told me the syllabus or curriculum of the coming Wednesday would study a topic about 'polite conversation'. I didn't take their advices. I have no time to attend as I have changed my work shift to the night shift and I really don't like that way to study. I have my own simple way to learn and I will keep going in my way.
