My College is Made of Fail…

So, one of the people I’m going to be living with this year at college has been able to move into our apartment early (it’s a school-owned apartment) because he’s in the marching band, and today we learned to our dismay that the “powers that be” are stupid imbeciles.

They decided that they were going to remove all wired methods of Internet from the apartments, including the cable internet, and even the shitty UCAnetsĀ® (if you tried to play Xbox Live with me last semester, then you’ll probably remember how absolutely crap the internet in UCA dorm was).

As of now, there’s only going to be the crap school Wireless Internet available. You can ask any of my friends from school how absolutely crap that is. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it crashes about every 45 minutes.

Suffice it to say, I’m fairly pissed off right now. Things may improve when the main student body moves in on Sunday and people are pissed off because they can’t access the Internet Facebook any way other than wireless. Maybe then the powers that be will realize that removing land-based Internet was just about the stupidest thing they could have done, and they’ll restore the wired LANs (and hopefully the cable internet to the apartments, as well). Heck, my roommates and I have even considered asking if we could pay some sort of fee to get the cable internet back, but it’s idiotic that we’d even have to do that considering that internet fees are included in our tuition/housing fees. This almost feels like extortion just for internet that should be included in the housing “package.”

If they’re not going to restore some kind of wired ‘nets, then maybe they won’t object to paying $100 for the Xbox 360 Wireless adapters three of us in my apartment are going to have purchase so that we can use Xbox Live, and the $50 adapter two of us are going to need to purchase in order to get internet on our desktops. I feel particularly sorry for one of my roommates, as he only has a desktop computer, so unless something gets worked out from higher-up, he’s not going to be using the internet on his desktop.

So, basically, it looks like any chance I had at playing XBL or actually having any semblance of good internet at college has suddenly dwindled to about nil. I am completely disappointed at the administration. Seriously, what the crap were they thinking? I call all this bullcrap.
