What Up With That?

So I’m over here at Universal Studios working away. This place has to have the absolute slowest internet connection I’ve ever seen! And it’s a major film studio! I don’t know if the IT guys are throttling things back so that employees can’t waste bandwidth with streaming internet radio or something but it can absolutely crawl at times.

The picture department of the show I’m on is down in Hollywood. In traffic it can take a while to for a runner to get there and back with things. So we’re using an FTP site to exchange things like change notes, EDLs and composition-only OMFs. Yesterday it took me 45 minutes to download 37MB!

I’ve got one word for that: lame. Ok, how about two? Lame ass. Actually, maybe that should be hyphenated: lame-ass. So does that make it one word or two?
