Well the guy I heard about getting permission made some program that was an offline browser or search engine or something, starting at a forum which could link to dodgey stuff so he got the permission.
Anyway... I got my welcome pack!!!!!!
Now I'm very excited, although I've got a load of stuff to read through (mainly boring i expect), can't wait till the 29th!
RE: the net.
What if a couple of colleges set up network game societies and then wanted to play an inter-college match? Perhaps the rules/ports could be twisted to allow for that if someone was a good negotiator.
