New limits placed on network access
By Jordan Blum
Staff Reporter

Information Services officials said there have been problems with network congestion because they have had to take steps to limit the amount of network connections for each user during the past three weeks, but they said students only have themselves to blame.
Dave Edmondson, assistant provost for Information Services, said a minority of students were saturating the network firewall when they used file-transmission software that opened up approximately 2,000 file-sharing sessions, or connections, at once from a single user.

Men’s basketball takes on Athlete’s First

Forgive the TCU men’s basketball team if its attention wavered from basketball the past few days.
But only for a few days.
Two days after head coach Billy Tubbs announced his resignation, the Frogs take to the court for the second time at 7 p.m. tonight in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum against Athlete’s First.
Both players and coaches said that focus has returned with a clarity, and the team has put the announcement behind them and have returned to basketball.
“The great thing about these players is that at their age, they are able to move on with their lives quickly,” Tubbs said. “We’ve put this behind us and are ready to focus on this season.”
