    Sexy new computers at school!

    We've got 20 of the latest Imacs in my tv production class for video editing, 17" widescreen LCD, DVD burners and 800 MHz G4! In my programming class we have new Compaqs with 1.8 GHz P4s (blech), All-in-Wonder Radeon 7500s and 40x Lite-On CD burners. Not bad for a cheapo high school eh?

    When I was going to high school, all they had were cheap Apple computers with green monitor tubes. Other than that, my school had one Mac, and that was it. Didn't know squat about computer hardware back then, but even then I hated Apple.

    Young kids these days are spoiled, I tells ya.

    When I was going to school a good slide rule was 50 bucks and calculators were worth a kilo of good weed.

    ahaha, give the teachers this hint:

    glue the twisty thing that you undo the mouse to get at the ball to the mouse... although when you do this you cannot clean the mouse.

    Or you could just get those 7 optical mice eh?

    Glad to see computers in schools, we didn't have them when I was a student, I still have a nice slide rule somewhere,

    I wish they'd had em back then, but not everyone can afford a main frame since that's all there was

    As for stealing the balls, well, optical is really nice

    The only trouble I see is that you got Comtrash computers

    i remember in high school we had an idiot teaching c++

    one time he tripped and dropped the book and couldnt find his place so he sat in his seat and threw the book and told us to do whatever we wanted

    a few times we stole the mice balls and didnt put them back until we had his class again.. there were a few ocassions where he cried because of us

    its sad to see someone who was once in the army is crying from a classroom of high school students lol
