Haha.  My fiancee attends MIT and lives in a dorm that continually gets
the shaft from IT when it comes to upgrades.  Picture 100-something
students on one of those.  With wireless APs hanging off the walls.

When I was visiting her, I was doing laundry, and the switch was really
near the washing machines.  I never one saw the collision rate drop
below 40%.
