    Hellooooooooooo



    Same here

    With my school the 6th form is part of a consortium so we can go to some of the other nearby schools for our lessons if our school doesn't offer them or if there is a clash with subjects, well I do art in one the other schools and I have a bus up there with the other people who have a lesson in that school then.

    All last year the bus wasn't too bad, there wasn't many people on there (a few times it was just me) and everyone was quiet but thanks to the new year 12's there was a stupid amount of people on the bus. It didn't help they were all being annoying as well. Not that I couldn't put up with it but if they got band from the bus (which has happened before) seeing as I was the only year 13 on it at the time they would very much likely drag me into (most of year 12 hate year 13 for reasons I don't know) and get me band as well.

    Add a few annoying year 7's who were the type you would love to hit with a chair and my day wasn't very good. Damn year 12 and the stupid amount of them (there is almost a hundred of them).
    You got band on the bus? Must've been a big bus. Was it a brass band?

    Wouldn't be surprised...... Supervisor tells me he's caught 2-3 pedophiles in the 4-5 years he's been working there.

    How the hell did he manage that without going through their personal files? Unless they set the pics as their desktop wallpapers or something stupid like that. :p:

    Well it depends entirely what the computer is in for.. for example some people have us transfer/ghost their files from one hd to another.. this is usually when we find their hd is starting to fail or they just want a bigger hd.. whiles thats happening windows shows the files name thats being transfered and yeah well you can usually tell by the file names..

    Of course we have access to their files, but rarely go into them if we don't need to.. but remember people can leave pictures on the desktop too so......yeah.. We usually check exactly what we're transfering before we transfer it because well... we can.

    Also other signs when people expect us to do a doc transfer but refuse to give us their passwords? Well we just wipe their passwords off, since we can't transfer files without having access to them.. Its pretty obvious.. If we suspect something, we'll investigate it.. for example we had a customer the other day who dropped a laptop in. 10 minutes later he came running in saying

    "you can't have that hard drive thats in there, take this one, its been formatted"

    Supervisor was suspicious so he did a data recovery on the formatted hd since we have the software to retrieve files even if it has been "formatted".. because once a drive is formatted it doesnt mean all the exisiting files are actually gone.
