Wait a Second!!!! What is this

From The Manitoban:

Missing computers will return this fall
Students who rely on library computers should not be dismayed by the bright orange signs in libraries: the computers have been temporarily taken away to bring them up to speed for the high demand expected in the fall.
Susan Miller, the associate director of Information Services and Systems, said that the temporary removal is for the better.
“It’s just that we’ve had to remove computers that didn’t meet the security standards of the university because they were old. We have received funds now to replace those computers, and they will be in this fall, [but] not at the beginning of term, because we can’t get them in that fast,” said Miller.
The administration has provided money to upgrade the existing computer service, although no more additional computers will be added.
However, Miller noted, with the ever-increasing wireless capability on campus, any number of personal computers can now be used in five libraries. Additional libraries may soon be equipped with wireless technology.

WHAT – NO NEW COMPUTERS???????? I THOUGHT THAT $150 per student TECH FEE WAS GOING TO BE PUT INTO TECH!!!!!
Yeah, that is right, the TECH FEE is just a CASH GRAB!
