or copyright infringement issue showed up on the main page of MyUW and i'm kind of getting worried that i might not be able to use my laptop.
i don't have any p2p softwares, ie: limewire, to download music, HOWEVER, i do download my music through 4shared. i think this is a p2p too, but it's not a software it's a website. can UW track all this stuff? i have the downloaded music in my itunes and those music will show up on my computer....ahhh i don't know...anyone have any idea about this and have experience about it? what should i do to prevent getting a warning or getting blocked?

    You should just go use a public wi-fi spot. I imagine everything (if not almost everything) can be seen by the UW network administrators. There's nothing private about the internet, especially at public places like universities and libraries.
