    Hello all! I have been lurking the forum for about a month or so and decided to join. I am a freshman in college. I used to be an avid online fps player but it just seemed to get old. Also my college has blocked ports for playing graphics-based online games. I can get around the block :), but don't want to get in trouble. So.... Hi!

    Hey. That kind of sucks that they don't want you to play games online. Why is that?

    They say there isn't enough resources for everyone to be playing them at the same time. We play stuff like UT2k4 on the LAN though.

    Welcome!

    Ontop of playing games on their state provided connection, people downloading music and files, it's hard for the students who actually use the net for educational purposes. ;)

    actually most public (state run) colleges/universities that my friends goto don't have restrictions. I am at a private one.

    Most private colleges are also supplied by the State. Atleast in Maine.

    I don't completely understand what you mean... I assume a private college pays for service... thus being able to use what they pay for, not what the state says...

    Almost all colleges here, minus a few, use the State's connection provided and controlled by UUNet. It's basically free, so that's why they use it.
