I know far too many people using bit torrent here... and I would venture a guess that it's probably a pretty big part of the problem. If that's the case, then... well... attention all bittorrent users, please stop downloading the new Harry Potter movie that you didn't pay for, and let me get the internet connection that I *am* paying for here at Drew.

I just want to use Skype to call my mom, and I can't.
