Ever thought of the people who pay for the internet?
In germany there are now “flatrates” in discussion.
You have to calculate how long you are online, and then
you can compare what you would pay for with an
internet-by-call offer….
Hard to imagine?
But that is reality. You pay not for the information, no no!
You pay for having the chance of getting informations.
Of course, at university, there are public computer-pools…
I am really unhappy with this situation, and especially today.
I had to try several times to dial-in, and only to notice,
that university subnet (my computer inclusive) is down, and
I can’t receive any emails.
This is not acceptable! And I can’t find any reason for it.
