    Norwich is a good city, but fairly small. No virgin megastore, but there is a large shopping centre. They're also building a new bigger mall near the city centre which I think is supposed to be open in about a year..

    You can't run a permanent server, but you can get away with opening one for a few hours to play online. At the end of last year they banned all file sharing programs but I was never kicked off and I used kazaa and BT a lot. I do know some people who were kicked off after downloading just a few songs though, so be careful.

    How's everyone doing? First chance I've had to get online lol

    I'm in the Village (Oak House) - the room/pod is smaller than I had expected, a bit like a caravan but at least I've got a bathroom at all ! Getting on well with everybody in my flat which is good. Anyone going to the Trevor Nelson thing on Saturday ?

    I'm really worried about downloading songs... I do it all the time and I'm deffo not gonna be loading Kazaa or anything on here. They've confirmed that they're okay with the legal ones like iTunes though. Do you think I'll get away with downloading the odd mp3 from online? I mean they're not to know whether it's legal or not. I am a bit paranoid about it though - don't like they'll cut off your connection with no warning ! I don't want to have to start buying singles again ! :mad:

    Seems a shame to have such a fast connection but not be able to do anything with it... oh well. Hope everyone's having a good time !

    Hey everyone, I'm doing Business Management and am living in brand spanking new Colman. It's great here, my flatmates are really cool and we all seem to get on pretty well.

    It was one of our flatmates 24th birthday on Saturday so we hired a stripper to surprise him! £120 for her to get her wabs out but it was a bit of a rip off as she only 'performed' for about 15mins.

    I'm finding lectures rather boring as it seems to just involve the lecturer reading out the notes for an hour. Having done Business Studies for A-Level, it means that this first year contains alot of repetition for me though. Seminars are much better though, with the smaller groups you can get a bit more involved.

    Yea, i thought it was just a regular virgin store because it's quite small, but I went passed it on the bus a few days back and saw that it was a megastore!

    You shouldn't be disconnected from the network for using kazaa even if you use it all the time. I had it almost permanently connected after they had banned it. Two people in my block were kicked off for downloading just 1 song though, so be careful. If you do get kicked off, go to the IT department and tell them that you wont use it again and they will reconnect you.
