    Since most of the other forums have a banter thread I figured, hey why not the Ross forum. This is a place to just talk about non school related stuff, but as with everything else it MUST REMAIN CLEAN. If people abuse it then the thread will be promptly locked. I hope everyone enjoys.

    How's everyone's internet speed on the island? Does it vary from apartment to apartment? I was downloading something today (from a US server) at 1 megabyte per second! I was pretty happy, my internet back in the USA is slow as molasses.

    Then again, I'm pretty sure the USA has some of the slowest internet speeds in the world. d'oh!

    I could d/l at about 6MB/s yes megabytes not megabits when in New Avies, about the only thing I miss from the island really. And yes the US is super slow on the internet and a lot of the technology. For example I remember in 2002 when my friend did a semester abroad they had cell phones with color screens and FM radios in them already. We didn't start getting that stuff till a few years ago.

    Just curious to know where people go for a stiff drink or just for a good time after exams? Hopefully there are Mojitos down there or is that asking for too much? lol

    lots of places to drink, big and small. in fact, it is some students' undoing (the easy availability of alcohol)....
