...oh.

I only have access to the Oxford English Dictionary because of my university IP address. Man, it's going to suck having to use a peasant dictionary when I move.

It might shock you to learn that there are other mediums for such things.

It seems like lots of universities have subscriptions to the OED... Clearly they're trying to build an entire generation of people who are completely dependent upon the OED to get their precious etymologies and pronunciations, so that when this generation graduates, they'll all be forced to pay through the nose for what they formerly took for granted! The first hit is always free..

Or you could go to grad school *shrug* :)
