Apparently Bess was a bad doggy.
 
2002-02-12 09:34:06 PM  
Don't take my porn away!
 
2002-02-12 09:34:56 PM  
Seriously now, who DIDN'T see this coming?

"About three dozen of the 11,000 students in the school district have been caught downloading pornography"
 
2002-02-12 09:35:45 PM  
Porn.....it's whats for dinner. God Bless those little Cherubs.
 
2002-02-12 09:36:02 PM  
About three dozen of the 11,000 students in the school district have been caught downloading pornography, and the district is installing stronger filters in an attempt to stop the practice.

That is .003%

Overreact much?
 
2002-02-12 09:38:05 PM  
What's the biggie? It's just some common healthy pr0n!
 
2002-02-12 09:39:25 PM  
"Students will be without their laptops for about 10 days while the upgrades are installed."

IMPOSSIBLE
 
2002-02-12 09:39:30 PM  
How much you want to bet that there were a lot more than three dozen kids downloading porn that weren't dumb enough to get caught?
 
2002-02-12 09:41:04 PM  
When will kids learn that genitals are dirty, discussting and wrong?
 
2002-02-12 09:41:10 PM  
I wish they had porn when I went to school...Oh wait they did, AND IT ROCKED!!! :)
 
2002-02-12 09:41:54 PM  
Also the same state that wants to display the 10 commandments in the classroom. Hmmmmmm lets all Jerk Off for Jesus!
 
2002-02-12 09:41:56 PM  
Hey wait a minute...? These are high school students. Give me a break.

"Some students favor the new restrictions. Junior Daerone Perry calls the restrictions "good because some people do things with the computers we don't really need to be doing, and this way we can focus on the important things we need to use" the laptops for."


Yeah, like money laundering, and violent video games.
 
2002-02-12 09:42:45 PM  
0.3%
 
2002-02-12 09:42:46 PM  
Crap if my high school gives us laptops I'ma install linux on it and use the extra HD space to fill it up with more porn.

Teacher: Ok now everybody go and download this program, we'll be using it in class today

Drewgrange: Hold on lemme watch this movie before I have to delete it............. Can I go to the bathroom?
 
2002-02-12 09:43:03 PM  
Next week, they'll force the students to return all of their prepubescent genitalia, because...well, you know.
 
2002-02-12 09:43:49 PM  
I want my P*O*R*N*...
 
2002-02-12 09:43:58 PM  
I wonder if they consider reading Fark as "extracurricular anatomy lessons"?
 
2002-02-12 09:44:00 PM  
When I was at school I was once lent a hard core porn mag of a European nature. Unfortunately, my stepmother found it and burned it. I had to pay $20 retribution to the owner, and I'd only had it a day. Bah.
 
2002-02-12 09:45:00 PM  
I guarantee that within one week, some geek will program a crack that bypasses the filters and will be distributed to all the students computers.

[old guy voice]
When *I* went to high school, we didn't even *have* the Internet!!!
[/old guy voice]

Sad thing is, we didn't. I graduated in 1994. Even sadder is that the high school that I graduated from didn't have Internet connections until 1999. Before then, it was some gay-ass news upload network and Channel 1.
 
2002-02-12 09:46:12 PM  
Porn found on the Internet, France surenders.
 
2002-02-12 09:46:52 PM  
I bet then found out when all the kids brought their laptops to the bathroom. Like dirty Drew
 
2002-02-12 09:48:50 PM  
They should have been looking at advertisments instead. I think that is what schools want these days.
 
2002-02-12 09:48:52 PM  
A popular youthful predilection for smut may be an indicator of defunct sexual mores in a culture. Do cultures with a healthy sexual outlook exhibit any need for porn? Is there much porn in Iceland?
 
2002-02-12 09:49:50 PM  
WHEN SCHOOLS OUTLAW LAPTOPS
ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE LAPTOPS

...or something.

I'm proud to say I live in Henrico Co.

I'm not so proud to see that ONLY .003% put those laptops to good use...
 
2002-02-12 09:51:46 PM  
Those kids should have known better and stuck to using their computer for productive things like pirating music and learning how to grow pot.
 
2002-02-12 09:52:06 PM  
Give 5500 male adolescent teens web access, and some of them download porn. Well there's a surprise. I figure the breakdown is something like:
.. 311 : never managed to switch on the computer
... 54 : don't know how to spell "porn"
. 5098 : flying under the radar by using an anonymizer
.. *36*: sad bastards don't know how to clear a cache
.... 1 : Billy. Hasn't discovered his gonads yet.

BTW ... doesn't anyone discern between erotica and porn anymore?
 
2002-02-12 09:53:20 PM  
The .3 are not the heros. The heros are the kids who beat up the .3 for getting caught.
 
sec
2002-02-12 09:53:54 PM  
wtf? since when did kids get farking LAPTOPS courtesy of the school district??? back in the day we played number crunchers on a monochrome green monitor on an apple IIc. and we had to take turns since there was only one computer! and we loved it!

oh, and then we ate dirt for lunch and walked uphill to and from school. and we loved it!
 
2002-02-12 09:55:46 PM  
The educators/teachers just wanted to download all the best porn from their students.
Figure that you can find more quality porn from 30 students surfing against one teacher.
Whose porn you gonna choose to look at ?
 
2002-02-12 09:58:38 PM  
SLAYERSWINE - heh. I can just imagine the guys who are supposed to "upgrade" the computers:

"Hm. Leseee ... whoo-haa. Uh. Yo, Bill ... brought along your external CD toaster didya? Think these buzzungas will fit on a single CD?"
 
2002-02-12 10:02:41 PM  
Junior Daerone Perry calls the restrictions "good because some people do things with the computers we don't really need to be doing, and this way we can focus on the important things we need to use" the laptops for."

Boy, is Daerone ever going to get his ass kicked by his buddies for that comment.
 
2002-02-12 10:03:04 PM  
Number Munchers kicks ass.
 
2002-02-12 10:06:08 PM  
In other news, Junior Daerone Perry was found handcuffed, naked and gagged in the girl's locker room, with a sign around his neck reading "HI, I'M A fag."

Owch.
 
2002-02-12 10:07:51 PM  
Hey Kiddies when you get your laptops back go here to find ways to disable to blocking features that they have added.
 
2002-02-12 10:08:31 PM  
I don't suppose Dingleberry will come clean the soda I just sprayed onto my monitor and keyboard.
 
2002-02-12 10:08:37 PM  
So basically taxpayers are paying millions so students can be lazy and never go to a computer lab?

Henrico...I should have known.
 
2002-02-12 10:08:46 PM  
AGH! Troggles!
 
2002-02-12 10:08:53 PM  
Code_Archeologist - eh. It'll probably be blocked :)
 
2002-02-12 10:10:22 PM  
$10 says they have to do yet another refitting when the students find a way around the blocks.
 
2002-02-12 10:11:05 PM  
Withing 2 weeks time span, I should add.

You can take the porn off the laptop, but a horny teen will always find a way to get more.
 
2002-02-12 10:12:02 PM  
Gee, what a sucker I was for actually EARNING the $1500 for my laptop.
 
2002-02-12 10:13:22 PM  
Jeeze, when I was in school, we didnt have laptop to look at porn... we had to settle for poorly drawn pictures on the bathroom stalls.
 
2002-02-12 10:13:35 PM  
The things these students learn from the porn will benefit them later in life more than anything their teachers will ever teach them.

Just more proof that America has the best damn education system. Period.
 
2002-02-12 10:14:43 PM  
Headline should read "10,964 Virginia students avoid getting caught downloading porn"
 
2002-02-12 10:17:11 PM  
I'll never understand why the hell every high school kid needs a laptop for school. 11,000 laptops = $110,000, right? Well I'm sure the school gets some kind of discount but still, that's a lot of farking money.

Why not, for 1/3 of that price, build more computer labs with desktop computers that can be easily upgraded in a few years? Put a dozen computers in each classroom. BUY THEM MORE TEXTBOOKS. I can think of many better ways to blow school money than to give kids laptops that are used to surf the net and play games with.
 
2002-02-12 10:17:40 PM  
there are several guys at school that have porn on their graphic calculators... lol if that ain't nerdy i don't know what is
 
2002-02-12 10:18:15 PM  
Sure hope they don't take away our work computers because of porn.


I'd quit!
