    Hey! I was wondering whether there is a bus that goes from the uni campus to Central Six shopping centre in Coventry? Or is it easier to get a bus straight to Coventry city centre? (I'm looking for a job)

    Presumably, by being basically the only person using a very high-bandwidth internet connection. Like, say, the main central one for the university.

    Since people are talking about download speeds, is there a limit to downloads on the university wifi (for torrent files etc.)? And will downloads be monitored?

    This sounds really dodgy and bad but I just mean for downloading music

    Got a summer project within the chemistry department :yep: . Was in dire need of something to put on my CV . Leaving on Saturday though, so making use of the internet while I'm here :ahee:

    Summer projects are available in every department of the university - just enquire with your personal tutor to find out specifically about projects for you :yep:

    There are no limits, but then torrent sites will not work either :nah: . If you find one that does work and you're find out, you shall be disconnected for 2 months and fined £70-£100, so be careful. There're fair usage limits written into the ITS terms and conditions somewhere however (I will cite specifics once I've dug them up . The lengths I go to for you guys eh :rolleyes: - Right, turns out there WAS an unenforced usage of 1.3 GB per week, but that has since been removed as far as I can tell)

    However, while I'm here, please make sure your computer is clean and has antivirus before arriving. Any virus introduced to the network on your computer will be flagged automatically by ITS. You'll be banned until the virus is cleaned and the fined £35 for the privilege :erm: . There're other stuff you must be aware of, such as no hacking or sharing of university secrets and the like :yep:

    Other facts: Since 2010, the speed has been increased from an average 200 Kb/s connection to a 10 Mb/s connection, so be thankful!
    If you need super-duper quick internet, the theoretical speed you can get out of a campus ethernet port is 1 Gb/s. Plenty

    if it's something that you could turn a TV on and watch simultaneously, on Sky, digital or whatever, you need a license. However if it's for example sports from a foreign site then no it probably wouldn't be a problem.

    That may have had something to do with it... haha well this one was £4 and one of the others was £21 so I think I'd rather have this one
    Hahah! Have you been watching the 'Ancient Greece' programme by Dr Michael Scott? - Do you think he'll teach us?

    You'll find out mid-September . You'll get an email through explaining it . Your individual rooms will not have been assigned by that point, so you won't find those out till the week before you arrive

    Hehe, as TTO says, it happens all the time. The champions league final this year, there wasn't two rows of computers in the library that didn't have at least one stream of it running :rolleyes: (bearing in mind this was middle of exam revision period :lol: )

    You should be fine for cupboard space; most people are careful to only take their fair share, and if not just ask someone who's taking up too much to scale down - if you don't want to approach them yourself, just talk to your resident tutor about it.

    You might end up having to wait around a couple of hours for your key if you arrive that early unfortunately.
