I, and everyone here, share bandwidth with all the little houses in the area (of school). Lately it's been close to impossible to even just open blogs, because people are using BitTorrent and the likes. (People, it doesn't matter how fast or slow you download using torrents, it still eats up the bandwidth, through claiming a dozen or more ports!) So today we had a meeting to ask for some common sense.
Walking into the meeting room, you could see from body positions who would protest and who would not (feet on the table is not a good sign). The whole thing, as feared, turned into some kind of throwing around of stupid personal arguments and intentional misunderstandings, when the fact is that we have to share so let's be sensible, and let the downloaders download during the night. Simple enough. But it seems people are just determined to do things the hardest way possible, stepping on everyone's toes. Fine, we got the message through, but we pissed off a few people, and half an hour after we got back to our rooms, internet completely crashed. Tell me it was a coincidence. Just tell me.
And I who was hoping to be able to use MSN again.
Anyway. Some idiot was here last night, really late, sneaking into houses, trying to get into rooms, scaring some people half to death. He didn't belong here, and he hardly made any sense at all. So from now on: locked doors.
