So I finally got ResTech's automagic system to see me on the network. It hijacks my browser the first time I try to visit any web page to make me click a few buttons to give them money for Internet access, and then I've got my connection.

In theory, anyway. In practice, the system can't handle 1,500 people all trying to get connections at the same time. I've been trying to make it work since 3:30 PM. Note that it is now 11:10.

The fun part is that the web page you try to access doesn't have to be a viable web page, it just has to be any http query. The one that finally got to the system was restechisasackofstinkypigshit.com. Behold the power of insult.

Anyway, yes, I'm moved in, and yes, I'm exhausted, and yes, this room is luxurious except for everything that's wrong with it. Pictures to follow... uhm, tomorrow, or knowing me probably far later, because I'm really not awake enough to operate either my camera or my campus webspace.

That. Is. Awesome.

Campus webspace... hmm. Need to figure out if I have one o' dem things. Silly me, transferring in, forgetting to ask all these good questions. Fortunately, I was bright enough to copy the contents of my current college webspace folder to my computer, with the directory tree intact - so I only have to upload one folder to new space, and it'll all be happy. Though I should really do some editing on my space, and maybe even get someone to help me make a space that's actually more than just text... Nah. Too much effort. *grins* (My HTML skills - text formatting, links, images, and not a whole lot else. Though if pressed I can drag some other things out of my memory, just not easily. This is all hand-coded in Notepad - and is about the extent of my skills.)

It is good that you have least moved in. I hope to see you sometime soon!

Glad to hear that you're moved in. Now that it's almost 0300, it's time for me to follow your advice. Gnite!
