on kids with no life

Dorms opened today, so I was paying extra attention to our residence hall network, for which I wrote the management software.

So they opened at noon, and LAR went from just about zero to 4 Mb/s worth of traffic within ten minutes! What do these kids do... mommy and daddy drop them off and they immediately race to their room, plug in their computers, fire up Kazaa and start downloading shit? It boggles my mind.

I did spend a couple hours today making it so the student computer consultants in the dorms can access the Ethernet error statistics for the ports in the rooms. I guess they've been asking for this so they can better diagnose complaints of things "running slow." It amounted to one little PHP script and a few minutes' research into RFC2665. So that felt good to have accomplished.

I think Kazaa is the only way I'd ever saturated the downstream bandwidth (1.5 Mb/s) of my cable modem for more than a few seconds.

That graph is really disturbing.
