NetLimiter

Do you hate it too that your download manager slurps up all of your bandwidth? That because BitTorrent is using all of your precious upload bandwidth, loading a website takes two minutes?

So, before you click the links below, let your children leave the room if you believe that helps. Oh, and by the way, seriously, your kids will learn theContinue reading “Mr. Period”
