There aren't many computers at my school and I never tried to use it.
In my school, you can just bring your own laptop and connect away to this extremely fast wireless network that just seems to be hanging around. You can play games on it, do whatever you like. The school computers are completely crippled, though. And they have absolutely no qualms against banning you from the network, and a while ago they issued a direct warning against the use of proxies.
By the way, does anybody know about this wireless network known as "linksys"? It seems oddly ubiquitous. It shows up in a particular area in the common room, and it even appeared in my room, at home, once. For about thirty seconds. I was all, "Hey, I'm on MSN!" and then I was offline again.
The college I will be going to in the fall blocks IRC.
is a good proxy site
will this apply to downloading?
like here its banned to download exe files, mp3, mpeg and rar...
My school only blocks search querys, it seems. For example, if you google "sex" it blocks you. Well, actually that's a half lie (only blocking querys I mean). It also blocks the more popular flash sites (newgrounds, mofunzone).
BUT it doesn't block www.[insert lurid pr0n name here].com so you can get your pr0n fix, whenever, whereever, as lon as the IT teacher doesn't catch you.
I'm just kidding. Me looking up pr0n in class time I mean.
ah jesus we went to this shorefields learning centre for enterprise today and it was like WOAH they have flat screen comps and all these facilities...
