Story time!

Okay, I'm not sure what I want to tell first, so here's what happened:
I was thirsty. And the dishwasher seriously needs to be run, so I search for a less-conventional cup to use for some water. I find a very large mug/cup type thing that says RIT on it. So I fill it about half way, bring it into my room and realize that there is no place to put it on my desk... so since I'm not near my bed, I just set it on my bed... in the middle so it won't fall off.
Then, I'm figuring out Direct Connect(DC).... and I get it to work, so I'm collecting some files and such that I've been looking for recently... and I start getting hard drive full warnings... many of them... so I'm trying to close DC so that I can clean up my hard drive before I keep downloading stuff... but I can't! DC is freezing up my computer and the warning messages keep popping up, and I start freaking out... at this point, Heather comes in my room for some reason(I think she heard the alarming noises I was making) and I start to get up... and for some reason this(for the first time ever) involves leaning on my bed... where I had put the water.. so the cup tumbles off the bed towards me... on to the comforter, my chair, the floor... my pants... everywhere... at this point, I've cooled down(literally and figuratively)...and I am just very wet. Well, I've learned my lesson. No more direct connect. It's just bad. Gah.

I can't even imagine how much faster the net would be if nobody had this desire to download every single song, video and full-length movie they can get their hands on.

The only redeeming value of all this data-splurging is that it has prompted development of faster networking.

interesting that the lesson you learned is not: "Do not put a mug of water on the bed."
