Strange situation change

Just noticed something today.

A few years ago I was living in residence at St. Paul University. The internet access there was managed by an access controller which redirected all new connections to wireless.colubris.com. After some investigation, I realized there was a way to work around the bandwidth limitations and session timeouts with the use of a DNS forwarder, a Web server, MAC address spoofing, a SOCKS proxy server software and a pseudo-keepalive tool, the ever-useful Firefox addon Reloadevery. This allowed for much more effective use of the available network connectivity.

Fast forward to the present, and I now find myself on the other side. We now have installed our own HP ProCurve access controller, technology which HP acquired through the purchase of Colubris Inc.

so, wireless.colubris.com, we meet again. Things look different from this side.

    So kann man das nun auch wieder nicht sehen, ich denke da an ganz andere Sachverhalte.

    funny how life can be 🙂 but must be a good experience to see things from the other side!
