    I have a G4 500 Cube and wanted to start crunching. The problem is I don't have an internet connection at home.

    The only access I have to the internet is University. I can't plug my computer into the internet though.

    Is there any way that I can download stuff onto the Uni computers and using floppies transfer it to my mac????

    If so can I collect enough data units to last a few weeks? I don't want to keep fetching stuff back and forth.

    see if this works, i've never tried it myself:
    as far as getting weeks worth of work, all at one time, i don't think there is a way to do that. RC5-72 is a much better solution for offline machines that need to be periodically refreshed once in a while.
