So I was sitting in the computer lab at our school, our class was writing a report on The Odyssey. Since our shcool does not have much spare money (what school does?) We are using pretty old PCs (the few iMacs we have run 8.6), I didn't get a chance to rip apart one of the towers to tell what kind of processor it had and all the hardware stuff, but the OS was win 95. So this kid next to me starts yelling his head off that the word processing app, Star Office, won't launch. So I try to do some trouble shooting before one of the lab guys comes over and starts yelling at him. Me: did you click on the icon? Him: yes Me: did you double click? Him: yes Me: do it again (short pause) Him: this thing is so ****ing slow (The app still isn't launching. So I grab hold of the mouse and click on the Start button, and it pops right up so I know it's not frozen) Me: well, I can't hear the tower making any noise, so the app isn't loading up Him: what the he** is a tower? (I point to the big box next to the monitor) Him: that's not a ****ing tower! It's a modem! Me: the modem goes into the tower, but the whole big box thing is called a tower. Him: no it's not! (so he yells to the kid sitting in front of him) Him: hay Dave! Whats this big box called! Dave: it's called a CPU (the kid sitting next to Dave jumps) Other kid: it's called a disk drive, not a CPU! (so all 3 argue about the topic for the last 10 min of class) *sigh* Even in theis day and age you think people would be more informed about computers. These kids are the same people who say, ''well the e-mail said I had a virus and if I downloaded the file it would fix my computer!'' Moral of the day: Mom: so what did you learn at school today Daniel? Me: my English teacher thinks that broadband is only for porn, I know more about Windows than the computer tech people at my school (and I don't even own a Windows computer), and I own more HD space than every compuer in my school put together. ~440 GB by the way. Edit: As I later learned, the kid behind me was busy taking the keys off the keyboard, and rearranging them to spell naughty words.
