  • On-demand television is long becoming the way to access television when you want it in the format that you want it in. On-demand is on the most part free, so you can stream and download for a set period afterwards. 

    Plus, for those in the UK and elsewhere where a TV licence is needed to watch live broadcasts, you can ditch the TV licence altogether if you stick to on-demand only. In most cases, you do not need a licence to watch on-demand television. So as long as something has been broadcast at least fifteen minutes before you watch it, it should be fine.

  • Printing costs on campus can be expensive - 5p a sheet, or 10c, depending on the kind of content you are printing out. Over time this becomes a huge expense, and there must be a better way of doing it.

    Forget inkjet printers, because the cartridges will wear down far too quickly. I propose an investment in a black and white (monochrome) laser printer. The paper will be churned up faster than the ink cartridges, I promise you that.
