    very impressive. how much to get that at my house?

    but seriously, my school (chamapgne campus) is participating in internet two. I've been to their virtual classroom, and t is pretty amazing. All walls and ceiling is a big net of digital displays. It could serve as one huge "monitor" hundreds of small ones. conferences in other participating universities are held over the net. I'm not exactly sure of the speed thought.

    It would bring closer researchers' final goal of abolishing distance and making collaboration between scientists around the world efficient and effectively instantaneous, he said.
    Not to mention super-fast online video games

    I'd be glad to help them with their experiments

    Did they do this over the internet or by dedicated lines? Given the amount of spam that flows through it every second, achieving a data rate like that would be no less than a miracle.

    i know. i was thinking that when i posted, but the film industry isn't the one seuing people yet... they just put ads in the movies, so people will copy the ads while bootlegging the movie... then their guilty conscience will make them sell the bootlegs without the previews...
