It’s perhaps a bit odd that the thing that makes me realise how little time I’ve got left here is a BitTorrent client, but nevertheless that’s the case. One of my torrents is estimated to take a further 8 days to complete - whereas once I’d have dismissed that as “it’ll finish eventually” and just waited until it did, now… Now I don’t have eight days. That torrent will never finish.
Only seven days, now, until I lose my beloved ADSL for three months… Ten days until the party, Eleven days until I leave Southampton, thirteen days until Spain… I’m running out of time, fast.
