University Bandwidth Crapout
color cycle (slow)
Damn it, why do I keep getting speeds like 12 KBPS on this $260/yr cable Internet connection? I do believe I will ask ResTech what's up with that.

I won't be surprised if it turns out that BitTorrent users are slowing down the system for everybody. They throttled Kazaa, Napster, Direct Connect, Morpheous, and similar programs to 1/4 of the total bandwidth availible, but they might not yet know what a BitTorrent signature looks like.

I was wondering about that! I noticed it when I tried to send some files to a friend over AIM. It was annoying, and we had to cancel the transfer! Oh well. I also wanted to apologize for yesterday (Wednesday). I got your message after you had signed off, and I tried to call your cell phone. Are you going home on Friday again? If you are going home on Saturday, I was wondering if you could hang out at all! I feel bad, because I have not been able to see you on campus yet, and I would like to. My schedule on Friday: Class from 11 to 12 and 2 30 to 4. Let me know of any free time you might have. Take care, Kistaro.

According to someone "in the know," it's one asshole killing pretty much the entire upload bandwidth of the University doing something overnight. ResTech is rather pissed off and intends to take action- of course, this is secondhand info for me and third-hand for you.

I'm going home this Friday, but only after I check out a programming competition team being formed; they meet at 2:00-4:00. I can stash a deck of my Magic: The Gathering cards in my backpack and meet you in Mallinckrodt (Holmes never has tables) at noon?

I still have that cold, and I don't want to risk giving it to you, which is the primary reason I haven't been trying to hunt down you or Richard to waste time that we probably don't have.
