resnet really does suck

im sorry – im not usually one to complain – by why is it that every weekend that campus internet falls over? this time it was dead by 4am saturday morning…

im only able to post this blog by the use of a proxy, which currently is only allowing access to warwick uni local sites (eg no msn messenger)

grrrrrrr. nash teeth / wail etc. and why do we have to individually claim for compensation – when its pretty clear its been mucking up the whole of campus on and off all year??

i need my number one procrastination method… :D

  1. The uni sites are working without proxy btw. But completely agree – I need my #1 procrastinaiton method too. I neeeeeed facebook! I neeeeeed human contact via msn (since everyone is locked away in their rooms 'revising'). I neeeeeeed the internet goddamnit!

  2. I have to confess, while my knowledge of large scale networks is limited, I can't see why ResNet is so difficult to keep working, unless a trained chimp is running it. I would quite like access to all my eMail, including the accounts held off Warwick Campus. However for some odd reason Groupwise is being stable currently– maybe it's a pick A or B, you can have eMail or you can have ResNet, we don't have the computers to run both?!

  3. A trained chimp?!?!?! We should be so lucky!! It's an untrained chimp, and it doesn't work weekends…

    I refute the allegation. I am currently unemployed

  5. In which case Gavin there's a job in ITS – all you have to do is turn the network hardware off at random intervals in order to wind up students trying to send emails to the AUT

  6. When I was chosing where to do my masters next year I had two similar offers and so I did take in to account things like the problems i've had accessing my emails this year and the experiences others have had ResNET. A shame really!

  9. The Campus Network will be severely disrupted between the hours of 19:00 (7pm) and 23:00 (11pm) which means it will be unreliable

    Resnet unreliable? Surely not :–)

  10. Hang on… Are they actually going to be working on it, or are they simply predicting when it's going to fuckup again?

  11. Technicall they are talking about the academic network and Groupwise not ResNet…
