    Hey everyone. I'd be really grateful if someone could give me a clear answer to a few questions regarding internet usage in the halls (hopefully starting at the uni in September). Most likely I will be using my own PC

    1) Is there a way to play games online through the uni network? I emailed the IT desk and they gave me a roundabout answer that seemed to say no but I want to make sure.

    2) What is actually prohibited on the network, aside from illegal things (so torrenting etc) and what is the sort of procedure if I do something they don't like? The rules documents on the website didn't really tell me anything useful and I don't want to get an angry email in the 1st week telling me I'll have to pay for my own internet from now on...

    Thanks in advance for answers

    Yes, yes you can watch porn. We all know that's what you meant.
