Ok tech savvy people who understand a lot more than me.
My phone has been chewing through mobile data, the cause - according to optus - is tumblr.com.
Now, I have been on E for a while, I have been roleplaying longer, I am not silly enough to click tumblr links while on mobile data because they chew through the data something fierce. But recently just opening the home page of E was using 20 mb of data.
So, troubleshooted, thought about it, and tested a few things. With only allowing access to mobile data through safari, and only loading the home page of E (the one with all the thread links), I used 23mb in a few seconds. What the? So, then I thought about what I could do to test further so I deleted my biggest PM threads, then reset the data counter, started again. 1 mb used. MUCH better.
SOOOO my question is, how the hell do I stop LINKS. Not embedded images with the [img] around it, but just links from somehow auto downloading even if I am not accessing that part of the website? I don't want to have to tell people to not send me links, but I also don't want to chew through the data I have, or even worse, not access E at work!:)
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
