-once-about-it is more like it. It's actually a very significant issue at
colleges across the world (or at least the US, I assume the world).

I couldn't have put it better myself :D And yeah, I noticed in college that
there's no file transferring at all in ANY im program.

That didnt stop myself and a friend writing a java chat room with video and
voice chat capabilites, not to mention a VERY good file transfer system that
works through proxies last year. Quite proud of it to be honest :)

throttling eh? Nice idea ... and how would one go about doing that? As it
would also solve another big problem of mine - my sis (again *sigh*) using
up all of the available bandwidht on her beloved McFly webboards and
whatever else she looks at.

Cow :)
