I'm going off to college soon, and I know for a fact that they monitor bandwidth and incoming data. So if I were to torrent some music, they'd find out, but only if they're paying attention.

I was wondering if there was a way to hide my online activities. I don't think I could go a day without downloading some sort of entertainment media. (I know I could stream, but there are some foreign movies that aren't available for that

Wrong place to ask for this sort of thing.
