Don’t switch horses in midstream—not a water stream, I’m talking about when downloading a large-scale video stream, because when you switch horses there’s a good chance you’ll bump your Wi-Fi connection, even just temporarily, and sometimes that screws the whole thing up and you have to restart, and by the third attempt, you’re just like, “Is it really worth all this trouble for a pirated copy of Season 2, Episode 8 of Herman’s Head?” Except they still haven’t released it yet on DVD, so it’s pretty much your only option.
