It appears the in-dorm internet connection is now active. I talked with a chap here, a student, who has been assigned the role of network administrator for the building, and he ever so kindly let me glance at the sheet of IP addresses for our rooms. I’m now connected via ethernet, and it’s absolutely beautiful. Check out this transfer rate:
How cool is that? The list is already making the rounds through the dorm, I should think, but screw everybody else, because I’m connected now, and there’s no going back. Of course, it appears that each room in the building is assigned a static IP address, which I find uncomfortably Big Brother, but whatever. It’s fast and I’ve already set up a Tor server to give back to the world for what it’s given me.
With this bandwidth I’m blazing through picture uploads. Expect a new post soon.
