Taming the Public Computer in Miami

I grabbed this from LISNews (I think) days ago and forgot to post it:

I work the reference desk and I know what it’s like when all of your terminals are full. I’ve seen arguments, scary situations and downright nastiness over access to the Internet. I’m all about access but as the article states it needs to be fair access… not the same folks for 8 hours everyday.

What I wrestle with is the game players and chatters who tie up machines when other folks may want to research reports or personal matters. I know it’s none of my business, but sometimes I feel 5 people having 2 hours each of Yahoo! Games is a waste or resources…
