    Nar doubt it. Anywayz wasnt your fault like you said and you have the email anyway to show a proof. Who sent you it? I know College isnt anything like Uni but a few of my mates have dossed around on my account a couple of times, typing in porn sites and such while I would go and speak to the teacher and nothing was said about that so I doubt you'll get repremanded.

    If you couldn't use the connection provided from your university to watch porn then 99.9% of the people there would be thrown out.

    Your laptop, your life. You might get in trouble for watching porn in public spaces if someone reports you (which I doubt they will for a single email) and you definitely will if you decide to whack one out during your watching, but if you're in a personal space you're good to go.

    Yep, I was at Lancaster and you definitely can, as long as it's on your own laptop. It's obviously blocked on the uni's own computers in the lib etc though.

    As for the email, I wouldn't worry. It was your own laptop, not their computer, and you probably gave some bored librarian something to smile about :perv:

    Out of a... purely theoretical interest... how closely is your internet monitored at university? If you use your own laptop but their service, will they know which specific websites a specific person has been on? :holmes:

    Not that I ever used a school computer to try and view porn, but my secondary school had a system where the technicians could see everything that was on your screen at all times, and would frequently interfere with your computer - eg opening Paint beyond your control and drawing you a message saying 'get back to work' :awesome: It'd be nice if uni wasn't quite like that.

    Da Hell? :lolwut:

    They can probably monitor it as much as any network can. I assume they can see what you've been going on, but unless they are given reason too/are really bored they won't bothering going into it. Probably have a sort of filter that flags up endless google searches for child porn and such.

    Maybe they were just pretty elite :awesome: But yeah, they had this programme - called Impero, I think? Something like that - that meant they could remotely access any computer in the school, and run the programmes on it like they were on their own machine. It was pretty disconcerting.

    It's not like I'd want to watch anything illegal It's just, you know, the horrible idea of walking into a lecture, some guy being sat in there fixing a computer while the rest of the lecture went on, and then him knowing what you'd been looking at the night before or whatever
