Well, my school has torrents blocked; I can't even save them to my desktop. I have a friend at a different college whose been experiencing the same thing.
And one time when I even managed to get a torrent file, the damn thing was slow as crap. I just didn't bother. However, IRC and other stuff works perfectly fine here; but I know a few friends whose colleges have blocked IRC as well.
Ohh snap! You just added another demon to the equation. Now it's physically impossible to download shows on torrent?! Humm,… to bad I have NO CLUE how to IRC... I really should consider making the time to start thinking about getting ready look into that... Ohh well, IRC for me! Or I could use direct downloads or something... Heh, like I'll have time for a life in college... If you call downloading a show a life... I heard from a very reliable source, that 1 out of every 5 people die in college their Freshmen year from the shear amount of work. The LITERALLY suffocate, in the huge collums of paper, made out of recycled news print. And don't get me started on music downloads... I heard a kid was sentenced to DEATH in college for just downloading a song from a friend. They said it was 'file sharing'. And he was finned. Finned his life.
Ohh wait, I am ranting again…
So, has anyone ever downloaded anything, within a signifigant radius of a college?
residence I believe = always on campus
they still won't care
your stories are conflicting... >.<
