Your Internet Consultant - The FAQs of Life Online
If you are a college (or even high-school) student or faculty member, check with your campus computer center to learn about the online facilities available to you. Many schools offer free accounts to students and staff. Similarly, your business may offer Internet access to employees--if you know the right person to ask. Finding access at your institution is a great way to get a free Internet account.
Beware of special restrictions on Internet use imposed by your institution. For instance, most schools frown on the use of their accounts for business or other nonacademic activities. Such policies may be as simple as posted rules or as elaborate as firewalls preventing you from using multiuser dungeons, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and other interesting stuff.
