My first PC-compatible was a Zenith 386sx. It had a 40MB drive that I upgraded to a 120MB drive...lots of space! Before that I was a TRS-80 die-hard since the late 70's.
In 1994 I bought a Gateway 2000 Pentium 90 with a 540MB drive. At the time, it was the largest hard drive you could get without having to install a special driver or get a BIOS update to cross he boundary in disk size.
Is what she wants legal? I don't know.
Is her taking of your notes out of your bag legal? Probably not. I don't know.
However, that she asks the question in the first place means that she doesn't want her students to learn. She just wants them to pass tests and graduate. She is not a teacher.
The purpose of teaching is to pass information from one generation to the next, hoping the next generation turns the information into new knowledge. People don't have perfect recall. They need notes and books to retain information. If the teacher doesn't want you to keep your notes then she is paranoid about cheating, and doesn't care if you learn anything or not. If I were a student, I would refuse and force her to take it to the dean, then to the police if necessary.
So call now and get yours! We can't do this all day.
Except they don't. The LED's themselves might last forever, but the circuit boards they're attached to don't. I have seem many traffic lights in the middle of summer have missing sections of lights, and others where sections flicker on and off like there's a loose connection. They look like pies with a wedge missing. Soon the light is replaced and it looks whole again...until the cycle repeats all over again.
One of Penrose's conclusions was that any attempt at artificial intelligence is necessarily incomplete, so it won't be possible, while Hofstadter said that it is possible to successively approximate something intelligent, and we can learn a LOT about ourselves in the attempts, and that in itself is worth it.
At least that is one of the many things I got from the two books.
"DULUTH, Minnesota — Jammie Thomas, a single mother of two, was found liable Thursday for copyright infringement in the nation's first file-sharing case to go before a jury. Twelve jurors here said the Minnesota woman must pay $9,250 for each of 24 shared songs that were the subject of the lawsuit, amounting to $222,000 in penalties.
"This is what can happen if you don't settle," RIAA attorney Richard Gabriel told reporters outside the courthouse. "I think we have sent a message we are willing to go to trial."
The case, however, did set legal precedents favoring the industry. In proving liability, the industry did not have to demonstrate that the defendant's computer had a file-sharing program installed at the time that they inspected her hard drive. And the RIAA did not have to show that the defendant was at the keyboard when RIAA investigators accessed Thomas' share folder.
