What is wrong with the education system today, the title of this mini-essay
I'm convinced that there is no one over the age of 17 in a school today that has the slightest conecpt of computer's and technolodgy beyond pentium 4 > penitum 3 (and this is negotable)
Why is it, that whenever all the computer start pages get changed to the evil xupiter spyware site and i install adaware on ever computer, i get blamed for 1. Installing the xupiter, and 2. installing some other program that when i admit i am responsible for, is uninstalled and blamed for the problem
I atend a small private school, but our local school district seems to worse.
They combine the stupidity of my school's staff, with the dilbert like behavior of trolls that hide behind a phone system. My mothers school is the least prefered in the school district and uses mac still (all other shcools have used dells for 2 1/2 years) i like macs and all, but these are 233mhz G3's running Mac os 8.0 (yah, they never even did the point release updates for security) so all some l33t haxor 13yr olds has to do is look up ip blocks that Tenet own (isp service all texas schools use) , and scan, cuz the IT trolls i'm convinced Fix nothing.
I would explain to My schools administrator, or board the reason that we don't need a 1200$+ crappy server, with raid 0 on 5400 IDE drives, and a P4 2ghz to run DHCP, and a small database, for the grades of 300 students (its win2k, and i doubt they even bother to install service packs, cuz all other computers run win98se no updates) I have repeatedly pointed out the dangers of not running auto update, but all their small brains can do is think that somehow i'm threatening them, and give me mysterious calls in class to make fake claims that i've hacked some passowrd in some office computer and messed it up. (think it was a bad PSU, but you know my psycic haxor powers are beyond understanding)
anyone else's school buy crap machines for way too much, and run IE 4? anyone else feal they are mislabled a haxor for trying to fix what is wrong around them? anyone hate xupitor as much as I do?
anyone want a proxie that tunnels past BESS filtering? icq me 17654783, or post a reply here
