Just today I was at my "office" in my university's "satellite" campus at
the old El Toro marine base.
Network speed is simply gawdawful.
Something like two or three public access Macs (I'm a Mac user).
Man, I'd hate like heck to have to rely on thin clients and the like.
(I had a bad day: I couldn't even d/l and install iTunes to grab a tune I
wanted to use to illustrate the problems of offensive speech to my
students [Tom Lehrer's 1959 recording of "Smut"]).
