Flinders Uni to introduce internet monitoring and quota system.

Flinders University has announced to students and staff that it intends to phase in a internet usage monitoring and quota system in order to reduce the universities bandwidth costs which in 2007 is predicted to surpass half a million dollars..

Although the new system is being refereed to as a “University wide Internet quota/accounting system” it appears to be primarily aimed at curtailing the usage of undergraduate students. 

You can discuss more about this announcement on the Flinders University Student Forums in this topic


DVD Review: Cutie Honey

cutiecover.jpgDon’t be fooled by the front cover boast: “Starring ERIKO SATO (Japan’s top swimsuit model)”, as this film is much more than just a perve-fest. What I mean is, Sato’s lovely derriere is only one of the film’s many visual delights. Cutie Honey (Eriko Sato) is the heroic, alter-ego of a lowly office worker, Honey Kisaragi. What her colleagues don’t realise is that Cutie Honey is an android replica of Professor Kisaragi’s deceased daughter (ala Astro Boy). The film opens with Cutie Honey finding out that her Uncle has been kidnapped and she runs to his rescue.



blacktownsmaller.jpgThe future of Australian film is here and it is in ultra-low budget filmmaking! Now that I have gotten my grand opening statement out of the way we can proceed. Kriv Stenders’ Blacktown takes place in the western Sydney suburb that lends the film its title. The suburb gained its official name from the colloquial term for it as it began as a settlement for Aboriginal education. The story is about two people and the love they find in one another.

DVD Review: Turkey shoot

Book review: Imperial Ambitions: Conversations on the Post-9/11 World
