School internet verses home internet.

Hey all. I would like your oppinions on something. What do you think is better? Home networks or school networks. i prefer home networks because you have full access to any websites, there's no monitoring you, nothing! Same thing applies with computers. I prefer home computers, or laptops. i don't really like school computers nor school networks, because they monitor everything you do, and they block a lot of cool sites, like YouTube, and it makes it very borring. I can tell you that my school is strict. They let teachers access YouTube and we cant? What the hell! I mean, sometimes I have fun using a school computer, but mostly, it's borring. And my school doesn't know how to upgrade either. They still use borring 10 old XP. Come on! I don't like XP. Sorry XP users, if any. But Windows 7 is better! It beats everything! Well, i know this is a long comment, I just wanna know what you guys think. Take care.
Windows 7.

I don't care either way. I can't access very much at home anyway. Is yov number still the same as it was last time I called you? If so, I'll call you tonight and give you my new number.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



Yes it's still the same.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



Your school computers are only 10 years old ours are older than that. i swear that there is a old computer with dos on it around here somewhere anyways. We hardly have anything blocked other than Youtube which just about everyone knows how to get around. The thing that's majorly annoying is when the teacher decides to mute the class or blank the screens that's when its annoying we are working on overriding it. Here's the worst part about our ancient XP software's that I'm working on daily in my computer class they call Scivis the county is holding out on us I'm still waiting on my screen readers ugh on the up side i get to say So long to these ancient atrocities in another week and hello laptop with lojack.
All around home internet is a million times better


Re:School internet verses home internet.



Thank you for agreeing that home internet is a hell lot better


Re:School internet verses home internet.



Ug, I hate all school computers and networks. Our school just got fiber optics and that's supposed to make the internet faster... it's done nothing. As for our computers... We have all XP or older too. Yuck for school, but definitely yea for home (besides the fact that you have to pay for).


Re:School internet verses home internet.



So does the school. They have to pay for their network as well. Not just home users.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



Yeah the school has to pay like everyone else


Re:School internet verses home internet.

Re:School internet verses home internet.



You were high on Valium? What was that like?


Re:School internet verses home internet.



Aww, you did have an awful week... I'm sorry to hear it. Mine was pretty bad too but not as bad as yours it seems. I was out of school for three days because of a fever and some other crappy simptoms... but I hope you are feeling a bit better now.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



I got screwed over too. I had to send my BrailleNote back for servicing.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



Wow. Man, Sarah I hope you get your braillenote back. It's too bad it didn't let you upgrade


Re:School internet verses home internet.



valium is hella fun. i was supposed 2 take it 4 the mri, but i took 4 instead of three. when i wasn't sleeping i was all floaty and shit. apparently, my mom tried 2 ask me questions that i wouldn't ordenarilly answer, and she didnt get any answers anyways. lol. if u ever get a valium perscription, take it, its hella fun. :))


Re:School internet verses home internet.



Using these when provided by a doctor is fine, but these are not things to play around with. Drug addictions with prescribed medicines (whether to you or others) has become much more prevalent.

Medications are nt something to play with, I know that wasn't your intent, just reminding the rest of the users. Have a great week!

Sincerely,
Joe S.

Hi all. I appoligizt for that response. That other computer that I was using, doesn't know how to typefast. I have to type very slow in order for it to type correctly. Anyway, disregard that last message. It's a bunch of non sense. I wish I could delete that, but I cant. Only the admin.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



You should go to the Ace Event on October 9th at Magic Mountain. If yu go, we could finally meet in person because I'm supposed to go.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



Oh nice I'll ask my parents to take me there.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



It's awesome! It's for Fright Fest where they will run Colossus backwards!


Re:School internet verses home internet.



wow, this thread is random. I've never been too found of theme parks though. they just aren't all that interesting to me. I like the rides a bit but I end up getting bored and feeling bland.

I've never been in to taking drugs or anything of the sort either. I tend to be very safe and secure in what I do. I have never liked that idea. besides I don't like the taste of the stuff. And, I don't like the feeling. I like being sane and me.

but I like home internet no questions there. there's so much you can't do on a school computer. It's blocks a lot of things and even for research purposes. sometimes I want to go on some of the sites I post on to plagerize myself and I can't. Huge ego I know. also, the school internet connection is virtually at a crawl at best. And, besides I like going on fun sites if I have time anyway. I am all done with stuff so why not?


Re:School internet verses home internet.



If you don't enjoy theme parks, then I completely understand as to why you're annoyed with me obsessing over them. I'm the same way. I don't find it interesting to date boys and sleep with older guys like other teens do. All most sighted teens care about is boys, and that drives me crazy.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



No, actually, it's just a part of them and it's bettter they aren't all about sex. I mean you don't always get the feeling all they want is sex unlike most blind opeople. I actually get along better with sighted people.


Re:School internet verses home internet.



The sighted teens at my school all they talk about is sex and getting drunk and high and partying.
