Seething with jealousy...

Man, am I ever jealous of the students at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. They have fiber optic connectivity across the campus - over 16,000 fiber ports on campus! Plus the campus network supports 802.11G wireless access!! Geez man - these kids are going to get spoiled rotten! Plus, they can download music WAY faster than other college students ;)

In other news, the lovely RIAA is encouraging Macromedia and SunnComm International to develop technology that will limit the number of times you can copy a CD - BMG Music Group is currently testing the SunnComm version of this "secure burning" technology. The technology is - of course - based on Microsoft's DRM (Digital Rights Management) software. yet another way for the man to keep us down. Damn the man!
