For the record, "computer specialists" in schools are essentially people who can manage ctrl+alt+del, and know the difference between a keyboard and a mouse.

In one weeks I have listened to a principal chastise the districts computer technician for not working fast enough to fix the computers before the technician was allowed to state, "those aren't computers, they are monitors" and then listening to a teacher complain that she couldn't print something. When given her options which consisted of emailing it to the secretary or putting it on a flash drive, she angrily admitted "I don't know how to do any of that!" and stormed off leaving the secretary and I exchanging glances of understanding that (thanks to the unions) until the current olds die off, education is screwed.

I appreciate your disgust at what you witnessed. But going by that logic if you drove a Ford and it broke down twice = all Fords are bad and motor vehicles will never improve until Ford goes out of business. It seems obvious that someone in that school system has to introduce a Computer Basics how-to course with sign off upon completion. While it may appear pathetic that a person doesn't know how to use email or a flash drive no one is born with knowledge. Teach a man to fish and he can surf for pr0n the rest of his life.

/ Honest Bender TY for the TF!


Yes, but too often these people will ask you "How do I do X" and you show them, they nod vacantly and trot off...and come back an hour later: "I tried to do that email thingy like you showed me but it didn't work!" and you show them again, they nod vacantly and trot off...And then you go and actually WATCH them try that email thingy and they open sixteen other windows. "Why are you doing that? I didn't tell you to do that!" "I know, but my friend over in Shipping & Receiving said this would work better."

This is why anyone with any degree of computer knowledge has long since stopped giving advice; and the ones in IT are usually completely insane.

I bet the teacher in question demanded a $3000.00 stipend to buy a new Macbook Pro because she "can't do her job without a computer".


How adorable, you think teachers get to demand anything at all, let alone a stipend. They use whatever they are lucky enough to be given or whatever they have to buy themselves.

I credit my high school tech person for sparking my interest in computers. Being a "charming" little scamp during study hours, I started noodling around on the school server (mostly just seeing how far a file extension would go) server and wound up in the administration part (not tech admin, school admin). Again, being a teenage boy, I started clicking and found the principal's files. I found out later that the principal demanded root access and started "re-organizing" the cluttered files, so the mistake wasn't known to the tech guy.

My parents were called because I was a hacker. My "punishment" was to stay after school for a couple weeks and help Mr Wade do regular maintenance on all the school's stuff. The principal's punishment was being stripped of root admin access.

I live right next door and I don't even know what is going on.

What outward signs of someone watching CP on their computer would you expect, exactly?

Several years ago, the IT guy for the police department of a large-ish town in the southern New Jersey was led away in chains after it turned out he was using department servers to store child porn.

as somebody who was accused of "hacking" the computers in my high school (when icons were disappearing from the desktop... yeah, sooper haxor!) and basically instructed myself to a score of 4 on the AP computer science test because the teachers were all useless, I don't find it hard to believe that a public school "computer specialist" would be completely inept at covering his tracks.

It's not like that everywhere. I learned about networks because our Sysadmin knew his way around a LAN. This was in 6th grade. Myself, my brother and my cousin all got into this business because of our school's IT staff. I remember being a sophomore and my brother a senior when we basically had a competition to see who could bypass the school's firewall first. He found out about it, patched it and encouraged us to try again. He was a great dude.

That is awesome. I wish we had more people like that here. I have totally stopped talking shop with anyone at my school site.

/one week, sorry WDYWN

Maybe he is a really good computer specialist but he was undone by his overconfidence. Hubris is a powerful force.
