the benefits of uni

I currently at uni giving the new computers a test drive, besides the wondeful D/L rate (got it averaging 900K) these computers are equipped with CD burners so you can imagine what I'm getting up to. Got to love uni.

Bloody hell! My Uni tries to prevent people sufing the net........They provide a measly 10Mb of storage space per student and only half the computers have a disk drive. My Uni sucks

Well at my uni your only given 4mb storage space and half of that is taken up by email and news extensions, some poor people delete that stuff to free up space, then there email doesn't work!

You have no idea how underpriveledged that makes me feel. I am trying to download at 2-3K. Why can't they just bring some kind of broadband into my area? Ahhh!

900K/S!!!!!!!
I can't even imagine having that kind of download speed...
It's not just wonderful, it's godlike

Though the 4mb storage would suck...

Can't those people just use hotmail or something anyway?

It's pretty good having computers with burners, ours don't, but we have zip250 drives, whcih are probably more useful because of limited account sizes. At uni I get 150k/s average download speed, but that's with a hundred or so people using the same connection at the same time, so that's not too bad.

I'm all set up to abuse the uni interent, I've got 4 zip discs in my bag and 270 mp3s queued to download, audiogalaxy is great for uni.

Ah the 900K was at microsoft, suffice to say not many web sites offer 900K downloads, and this was early in the morning when no-one is it at uni, oh and my early I mean before 11, man lifes a -----

For the record in that sitting I managed 420MB, burning is definately better than disk spanning!
