When the display popped up whether or not to save the modified file I saw the cursor moving to "No" and I was like "Yes! Save that file!". The cursor stopped and the teacher looked at me, saying nothing. "It won't to any harm, just look at it! Save it.". My teacher switched from looking at his screen and back at me. He seemed not to know what to do and I was like "Save it, save it, save it!". The teacher moved a little back from his desk, waited a little while apparently lost in thought (probably not) and decided to give me back control :D My heartbeat slowly returned to normal.

The numbers they were putting on the end every time did nothing (LOL) So to cut a long story short, we fucked around, didn't really do anything drastic except make peoples mouse pointers spaz out etc, got threatened with all sort of exclusion and shit for using an "illegal batch file" and generally worried our asses off once they found it. Everyone involved had to write a 1000 word essay on how what we did was wrong. I filled mine with about 20 ways in which the schools system was insecure :smugdog: But seriously I shit my pants when they found out. I was messing with it in a graphics lesson one time and suddenly this IT teacher came in through the door, talked to the teacher and then started walking straight towards me. Never again.

  • Sorry, but it really irritates me when the kids think they know better than the IT team. Our job is to make the however-many-hundred computers in your school work for the however-many-thousand people that use them. If your school's network has been running for more than 2 or 3 years its very likely all the settings and programs on it have been tweaked over time so that its easiest for everyone to use. For example, if you discover that you can make the screen go pink and set the font to 72pt it isn't because we forgot to disable setting XYZ. It's because students with vision imparements might need to change their settings so they can actually do the work in class. Also, we don't watch what you're doing because we all get a massive kick out of moving your mouse or closing any stupid programs you are using that you shouldn't be. VNC or whatever monitoring software is on machines because the school has a legal duty of care to ensure that all the students are protected online and that you can't get into trouble or be victimised or exploited by people or programs on the Internet. If you start messing about with that software or changing how it works then it opens all sorts of cans of worms. This is the same for proxies too. So you discover a proxy to get through the firewall and on to blocked sites - Cool. Now what if a 12 year old also uses this proxy and is going on some chat site where they are being groomed. Not so cool now is it?

As for the tech guys who sat in this room and did all the admin stuff, I know nothing about networking or administration. So really I have respect for them. That doesn't mean it's not REALLY fun to take advantage of silly little exploits :D (never anything malicious of course)

  • [QUOTE=CarlBooth;27171313]:words:[/QUOTE] You can't generalize that. Some schools have completely incompetent IT administrators. Other schools might have competent IT guys that are just too lazy. In my school they don't even agree with their own policies. I've shown them how to get past our proxy and they know how to fix it, but they just congratulate me and (thankfully) never do anything about it and actually encourage others to try it themselves (only one other person in my class can do it though even though it's an IT school).

I remember I was doing some filming for a project in a Forrest Gump class and I was checking the tape in the camera and noticed that it was filled, for the full hour of the tape of our IT guy talking on his cellphone in his server dungeon, and it wasn't about anything relevant, he was talking to a friend for the first 30 minutes and the last 30 minutes was filled with him doing child support things ( very sad I'm sure ), I wouldn't be so annoyed by this if not for the fact that every time someone in our school tells our IT guy they have a problem he says, "Okay". and walks away. Not sure if he realizes that near everyone in our school uses Windows machines at their home where 80% of our computers and 100% of our laptops are macs. Herp derp. Our IT guy doesn't even manage our school districts blocking. But really most of that was just me venting out how much I hate our IT guy, he's one of those guys who got an iPad RIGHT when it came out.

Not necessarily saying that the monitoring shouldn't be done, but I don't think it's a good thing for people to think "oh, thank goodness those nice people are watching my every action", and it's definitely not reasonable to hope this. As far as the actual ethics about the monitoring schools do, I'm inclined to disagree with it. Obviously it has it's merits but just "well this makes things work more smoothly and makes people safe" aren't compelling reasons without addressing the individual privacy/ freedom aspect of the issue. Mainly I'm worried about how easy it is to control and monitor people with the advent of computers. People seem to be making some very one-sided decisions, more or less "Well this will protect people, so it's a good idea". People of course have that idea with everything else, but generally it's hard enough to accomplish that somewhere along the line the person realizes that they treading all over peoples rights.

  • Guys, what do you think the preferable way to do a platformer is? There are 3 ways which come to mind - 1. Tile based 2. Image based (one for the visuals, another colour coded one for collision, entities, triggers etc) 3. Brush based (custom binary format consisiting of various rectangles) Tile based is by far the simplest to implement and develop for, but it's limited in that there isn't really any support for slopes. Image based is a pain to implement but allows a large variety when it comes to level design. Brush based could or could not allow sloped brushes. Thoughts?
