I cant believe that a grad student working in a research lab at SUNY
could not have the lab supply an e-mail account and access to an
appropriate bulletin board. You dont pay for using the phones do you?
Even though I had virtually no salary support as a grad student, I still
had access to all the tools I needed. Lets face it the burden will fall to
the professors and University. I dont think 2-3 fold is reasonable. I
dont think it is likely either. Unless you view the current system as
free, then it gets hard to put multipliers on the cost.
