Obviously a nice feature but probably not much use to you irish folk, at the moment.
A cool aspect of it is the "Group" feature where you can create or join groups, for example, at TCD there's already a bunch of groups, namely: the American Ex-Pat Connection (useful for me =P), one for people who live on Charlotte Quay, one for Bush haters, people who think Napoloeon Dynamite is pretty much the sweetest movie ever, etc. Some silly, some serious. Essentially a good way of meeting people with similar interests. May seem like a nerdy way of meeting people, but if you get over the dorky/techie side of it you'll probably realise that it's actually a good way of meeting new people that you could actually have a decent conversation with. None of this: "so the weather's been pretty crap, eh ?" shiz.
Addition: Oh & those of you who do sign up, go ahead and put in your full name, otherwise your friends'll have a hard time looking you up. Plus, the way the system confirms that you actually go to trinity is via your e-mail address. So there's no point hiding ... Obviously if you do wish to remain anonymous, you can edit your privacy settings but it kinda defeats the purpose of the site.
