I hate my schools computers.... the lower years are fine, they use the new win XP (but still not faster) computers... the 140 6th formers get 8 machines to ourselfs (we can use the others, but they are never free)... out of the 8... 3 are down, 2 work on very very very slow (these machines were built for win 95 and now run XP with the bare minimum memory).

One has a green screen, nope sorry now two have (this one I'm using is tempremental and now wants to be green. Which leaves use with 3 machines that work, and not very fast, but it's just about workable...

And then the filters... tell me what on a Psychology page about memory is possibliy offencive? And therefore must be filtered?

Our sys admin is from Congo, his english is not the best and therefore he often doesn't understand our problems with the net. The ICT teacher, whilst a very nice man is very forgetful and never does anything helpful aside from telling us to "re-start it"... not helpful when the b*gger never started at all anyway!

Natually M*S*N messenger and A*I*M are not allowed and most pages with it on is filtered (hence all the bl**dy *'s everywhere!)

Grrrrrrr.

*kicks stupid bl**dy computer with green screen*

(10 mins later- feeling a bit better just switched the monitors around.... did a logical thing of giving a dead computer a green monitor....)

i know what you mean our college computer blocks all internet site that have certain letters in it.
e.g you can't type analysis because it has the letters anal
and your can't zone

this is unfair as we have to come in to college even whenwe don't have classes and we can't go on anything fun.
it should only be blocked for the lower years and not post 16

finally i'm finished........

And of course if you do art (naked pictures of artness), biology (s*x etc) and Psychology (Freud=s*x ) you are stuck and can't access a lot of pages!

The green monitors?

Do you ever bother to degauss your monitors? It'd probably keep them alive for a bit longer.

Yeah.. but when the monitor adjustments (the buttons ont he monitor to change it) are broke.. and they are about 10 years old you more or less give up hope!

Although it has be discovered a quick sharp hit to the computers on the side will sometimes stop the greenness....

Well they've got to keep out unsuitable sites, but at my old school, even their own website was blocked to start with, because sussex has sex in it.

LOL!!

But Livejournal is educational right?!

I often find I can't access pages on here cuz the filter blocks it!!

One good cheat that can work is go to google language tools & used the translate page function, ie german to english. It block it but less so and the language is sometime a bit funny,.... but it's better than nowt right?

I know. Some places have really strict filters.
Here there are practically none. I've seen people on proper porn and stuff here.

Our school filter takes the p/ss really...

My dad does computer support for a rather posh boarding school down here, all girls mostly Chinese really (strangley seen this is Plymouth)

And the computers never had a filter, ever!!

And when i helped him out we saw the girls (mostly yrs 9-11) were looking a porn site etc and it was really bad, every computer has M*S*N mess, A*I*M, Y*I*M and that was in english, german, russain, japanese, chinese.... those computers were seroiusly f*cked up!!

Now they have a mild filter, but still allowed all IMing programs, and the filter really is crap!
