    I just want to point out that Ad Heesive is yet to contact me privately regarding my modelling commission. I trust this is an oversight and the involvement of my lawyers shall not be necessary.

    With regard to your modelling commission claim...
    I have defensively contacted my own lawyers for advice.
    Their (unofficial off-the-record) comment was "tell him to get stuffed".

    However, on closer inspection, we became suspicious when we noticed that the aforementioned super model hasn't changed its facial expression at all from one photo-shoot to the next. We now realise that the model is in fact already stuffed.

    My lawyers therefore advise that we have no intention of paying commission to this mangie old bag of fiber, straw, wool, and beans, no matter how cute its face may appear to be.

    Good day sir.

    Not sure whether you're doing this offline stuff intentionally or not but wanted to inform those that might not be in such a place so intentionally that modern LTE/5G hotspots off today's smartphones is enough to function as a really decent complete internet solution. It's obviously very dependent on your signal quality but with the TTL workarounds of hotspot data limits, even a free basic hotspot works much better than you'd probably expect. At least in the US, not sure about around the world. I don't pay for internet because there's really no point after I realized this.

    My current roaming period is 1.4TB :rofl: and that's just since mid-April when I last reset it. No extra fees or chargers or questions from my provider. Even my lil 2 bar 5G signal can give me an internet experience relative to my 2012 ethernet experience. I pay that lil extra bit for the highest tier of unlimited service and a nice discounted yearly vpn to smooth out any inconsistencies of the service quality when streaming something. So I end up avoiding paying $100+ and all the hardware install fees and all that fuckshit a month for a decently expensive cell phone plan I'd have regardless. Highly rec those interested look into it, there's an entire community of people that get much deeper into this than I care to. But they can definitely point you in the way to go even if you have a poor signal. There's a workaround/solution for damn near everything. Might have to come out of pocket a little bit depending on your needs, but in the long run, it's obviously worthwhile.

    Only thing I would warn is that it can kinda complicate smart device interactions sometimes when you think about the fact both the phone and the device have to be connected to the same wifi network (can't really connect to your hotspot... while hotspotting). You can workaround this by using another phone/device or your PC's own wifi hotspot function though.
