  Freedom Through Ad Hoc NetworksPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Calgary's wireless networks are generally pretty fast, but there are often times when they are at peak capacity and everything's really very slow. If you're trying to transfer a large number of large files between computers or play networked videogames on the LAN, chances are you're not only giving yourself headaches, but your neighbours as well.

  Joomla! part 2: 'Excellent extensionsPDF files may take a moment to load

Last Week On The Internet, I talked about an exciting new Content Management System that allows users to easily create very functional communities using freely-available open source software. By itself, a Joomla! installation is often lacking in some of the functionality expected of a modern website. This is made up through a gamut of free, community-driven extensions that provide an enormous wealth of functionality and are installable with a few clicks.

In the "About damn time" department, Bermuda Shorts Day will be less than 48 hours away by the time this article goes to print. That's not much time to get ready, but thanks to everyone's favourite technological marvel, preparing for the best and most drunken day of the year is easier than ever.

A couple columns ago, I mentioned Filtermusic, which is a list of ad-free online radio stations.

  This Week On The Internet: Photoshop your way to success!PDF files may take a moment to load

About three weeks from now, final grades will be out. For some people, this is a relief. For others, it is yet another reason to freak out. If you find yourself in the second boat, an encouraging photo to your parents showing all the amazing things you've done and incredible people you've met (or vice-versa) is a really good idea. Especially if they're paying your tuition. Yet for those who haven't met anyone more famous than the bouncers at the Den, this can be problematic.

As was alluded to last issue, everyone and their dog has a blog, and most of these are incredibly uninteresting, even for the immediate family of their writers. Therefore, as a public service, This Week On The Internet is going to show you how to make a blog that doesn't suck.

  This Week On The Internet: So underground, it's not mainstream!PDF files may take a moment to load

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the last couple of years has probably realized the Internet is probably the most significant step in the last two decades with regards to how we perceive news and the world we live in. However, instantaneous coverage leads to information overload-especially if one takes into account the number of blogs out there, the majority of which are utterly useless and unreadable.

  This Week On The Internet: Decrease productivity tenfold!PDF files may take a moment to load

The average student is withering away under the dreadful pressure of having to finish four tests, six labs, two art projects and a combined 45 pages of term-papers within the next six weeks- and that's without discussing the average engineer's workload. Those poor souls won't see the beautiful rays of spring sunshine before June.

Editor's Note: Ændrew came across a copy of Hunter S. Thompson's "Generation of Swine" during reading break and as such, his writing style- for the moment anyway- is that obnoxious pseudo-gonzo style that every college writer adopts for at least one piece in his career. Our prayers are with Mr. Rininsland and we wish him a speedy recovery.
