[OLD WEBSITE] Random updates Bitching About CCSO

No Gravatar

OK, it looks like I’m going to get to bed before 1am tonight, so I thought I would do a little updating on my web page.

So far, I don’t have much of anything here, but I’m going to add more stuff about all the the things I like. So sooner or later I’m going to get some more links to Transformers and other cool eighties cartoons stuff. Plus I’m thinking about just putting stuff up about me in general, including a bitch session about something new whenever I’m pissed off.

New to me, I’m trying something new out tomorrow, and Saturday. I’m taking my first class in Capoeira. Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art based on dance styles of Slaves in the 1500’s. Below I have a link to one site, and I’ll add more as I find more interesting sites.



Bitch session #2!!!

Now I would like to ask you all a question. Why the hell does the third entity to exist on any form of a network pay for internet service? Recently CCSO (Campus Computing Service Offices) decided that from now on the residence halls will be limited to 500 megs of transfers to and from the internet a day per room. Now although you people on dial-up may think that this is quite a bit, you’re wrong. I downloaded three-hundred megs in less then half an hour. Now the guy that I had to call to turn my port back on after I downloaded more then 500 megs, told me that we pay 40 grand a month for internet service. Now when you think about it this is 2$ per undergrad per month. That is not a lot of money. I would pay that, and so would a lot of other guys. I mean, we’re at a school prided on it’s engineering capabilities. In my mind the school that developed telnet, mosaic (what has become Netscape as we know it now) and most importantly email. (A note of my family history here: my cousin and some friends developed email for a way to leave messages for each-other on the server, which his two friends took and developed lotus notes). In my mind people should pay our school to be on the internet. But at any rate this is how it is, and if you want to come to school here don’t think that it is going to be everything you thought it was going to be.
