No matter where you fall on this issue, the damn school wasted 40 lunches and taxes are paying for them if they were consumed or not.

skeevy420: This right here is why I poked around on my school's network back in the day. Figured out the right Novell program to run, made me an administrator account, added my own funds to my lunch account, made backup user profiles (my official login was banned 50% of high school), backdoors so I could Kazaa and eMule(1999-2003 dammit) with T1 versus 56k, and more. To not get caught I'd add 5 or 10 bucks a month as well as selecting random accounts and increasing their funds.

Words of wisdom: if you only mess with your account and never add real cash you will be caught. Tweaking multiple accounts insures they'll think bug or glitch over hacker. Something, something, social engineering.

I was banned for a semester because I made every printer on campus print cuss words for hours on end banner style. A week later I had to type a paper for English. Teacher knew I was banned and told me to wait for someone to finish up and use their account (he thought the printer gag was funny). I told him I have multiple accounts and only the real one is banned, not my administrator ones. He laughed and said then go ahead and log in. I did, as an admin, where he just shook his head in disbelief and helped someone who couldn't remember the last 4 digets of their SSN (our passwords were first letter of last name + last 4 digits of SSN, j5488 for a made up example). He thought it was resourceful of me to make backup accounts because I knew I'd get in trouble eventually. I'm just glad I was never caught disabling the network for half the school (typing teacher was a coont biatch so all her labs went bye bye...and all the nodes past her...my bad) or disabling the keyword firewall. It took from 10th grade in March to 11th grade the following January for the back half of the network to go online....only to go down for four more months the following day. biatch had me banned from the network (a snitch told her I did the printer thing) and made me use a typewriter in the hall.

Meh, lunches weren't free when I was going to school in the 80's (unless you were poor enough, in which case I think there might have been subsidies).  This is not exactly a new phenomenon, though this level of ass-holery is something I've never heard of before.


Somebody else did the same thing at another school not that long ago. Got the same bad reaction, too. When I was at school, the school lunch was cash upfront unless your parents qualified for food stamps, in which case it was free. Saved a good deal of bullshiat. Maybe they should go back to that.

I don't believe his story because all students get 1 account that is their unique student ID.  For him to have 4 accounts it would have to be his plus 3 of his friends.  Almost all accounts in the schools networks are admin accounts due to the nightmare of having to deal with "User" accounts in that kind of setting.  Group Policy would be pushed down to limit what you can and can't do.

So for his story to be true it you take an entire IT department to be so incompetant that it would be stuff of legends.

Yeah let's go back to bullies shaking down kids for their cash that was a much better system.  Having an account that at the beginning of the month you can add $100 is worlds better than making sure you always have $3 cash on you to send in every day with your kid, then what if he's extra hungry and wants more?  Cash would work better for HS but Elementary needs an account based system.

Why stop at including meals in the price of an education? Clothing, health care and cell phones should also be included.  Why do you hate poor kids?

Or, you know, we could just commit to feeding children even when things don't go right.
 
2014-01-30 12:25:33 PM

ur14me: Where is it codified that public schools provide meals?


In the part of the law that we decide children shouldn't starve to death, even though they aren't directly eligible for societal benefits. If you'd rather just give them money I'm all for that. But reduced price and free school lunches (and breakfasts) are a huge part of our social safety net, as children are currently not allowed to receive social security or other forms of welfare.

Know how I know you aren't an IT guy? A) No all accounts aren't Admin accounts. Hell even a retarded monkey wouldnt do that especially today when kids are tech savvy possibly more so that the 50 yr old local computer guy the cheap ass school system hired to be the admin. If what you say is true and they did set all accounts as admin all he would have to do is create a new account. Admins tend to be able to do things like that.  FYI Group policies are great and all but if you limit the account of an admin then psst it isn't an admin account any longer.
As to your last statement have you ever seen a high school's IT folks not reach that level of incompetence?  I mean really theres a reason they don't work in corporate IT environments.

Local computer account is not the same as a network account.   Group policy can disable a bunch of things and you can set the admin account to not being able to do a lot of things.  Yes I am in IT and yes the accounts are admin due to having it easier to push things.  Granted we are not a AD shop and could be why we do it the way we do.  But if you wanted to make 100 local admin accounts... go right ahead because it will not change your network presence.

On base we are on limited accounts and it's god awful when a minor setting needs changed and have to wait weeks for people to come by and login with the admin account to do something trivial.

Plus Deep Freeze is awesome for student accounts.

Oh this brings back memories, 1995 to 2005 was a golden age for farking with school systems.

-One time we caught the school's "Network Admin" playing star craft.

-A friend of mine got expelled for a day for sending out a net message of "Star Wars Rules!" to all the school computers.

-Our programming classroom computers didn't have internet, BUT we discovered a few ethernet jacks installed behind our desks. So we brought in our own ethernet cords in. We didn't get caught for months and it was only because our programming teacher saw Myspace someone's computer screen.

-Farking with the print queue so my stuff always came out first.

-Got around the "blocked internet" by typing "www.google.com" into word and clicking the hyperlink.

-Looking up ratemyboobs.com on the school computers

-Burning music CDs and VCDs (remember those?)

-Downloading from Grocker, Kazza, and IRC.

-Discovering our school's webpage was created with FrontPage.

Thingster: Marcus Aurelius: But cafeteria workers weren't able to see which children owed money until they had already received lunches, Olsen explained.  The workers then took those lunches from the students and threw them away, he said, because once food is served to one student it can't be served to another

That sure is one farked up lesson plan they've got there.  Nice "child nutrition management" too.

Because it would be too hard to just write down the names of the kids with an outstanding balance, send a letter home with a comply by date, and giving a fair amount warning.

Our district lets you go to -$5 then the kids get a cheese sandwhich, fruit, and a drink until the balance is paid.  I've had my son's account get to -$4 before due to him forgetting to give me the paper saying he needed money.  Crap happens but to throw away the food is pants on head retarded, the food is a waste anyway so let the kids eat and add that to their balance, make a note to give them the bare bones meal from then on.

God my son goes through food at school like it's going out of style.  In the last 13 days of school he's used $51.

My kid was denied buying lunch once for not having enough in his account. And they gave him milk and a piece of fruit just the same as these guys did. It was my fault for not loading up paypam or whatever that shiatty service is called (you can pay and not have it show up in the account for days) But if they would have given him his lunch and then took it away from him, I would be breaking someones car windows.
 
2014-01-30 03:07:45 PM
Subject: I was taught to never present a problem without offering helpful solutions.

Dear [Name of Director of Child Nutrition],

I was going to write you a nastygram: My outrage at publicly humiliating children who have done nothing wrong and wasting food momentarily outweighed my desire to help. Please forgive that urge. I do want to help you make sure this never happens again.

First, please ask parents to document the day they made payments and check that against the time your processor credited their child's account. You may be able to fire your processor for nonperformance, since the contract must contain a performance clause or three.  (Many of these processors have a, um, reputation for not crediting accounts for four days or so, and for charging excessive fees.)

Second, I suggest that you contact Dr. [RedactedinComplianceWithFarkPostingRules], who has had to resolve these kinds of issues for lunch programs in several of the school districts that he ran here in Arizona. His innovative approach lowered program costs, provided more fresh food, and served all of the children. You can reach him at (520) XXX-XXXX.  He does educational consulting from time to time, and since this is an issue that directly affects the children and their ability to learn, he'll be willing to help you resolve it.

Third, may I suggest that, since the reimbursement doesn't change your sunk costs, you just feed the child the hot lunch and not waste food in the future? This will likely save you future public embarrassment, condemnation, prevent accusations of cruelty to children, and lawsuits against your school district.

Fourth, would it be possible to fire the person responsible for the events that led to this with extreme prejudice? According to the district, not all of the parents had even been informed of deficiencies.

Sincerely,
demaL-demaL-yeH

I don't believe his story because all students get 1 account that is their unique student ID.  For him to have 4 accounts it would have to be his plus 3 of his friends.  Almost all accounts in the schools networks are admin accounts due to the nightmare of having to deal with "User" accounts in that kind of setting.  Group Policy would be pushed down to limit what you can and can't do.

So for his story to be true it you take an entire IT department to be so incompetant that it would be stuff of legends.


Bahahahahaha, you brought up Group Policy for a story that happened around 2000, on what was almost certainly a Windows 98 network with at most one or two NT4 servers if they could afford any? In that environment, you just create an account. My school had some digital gradebook program only stored on local computers, and submitted spreadsheets on network drives with no security on some Win98 box. Remember, 12-15 years was a LONG time ago. It was the era of kids knowing more than any employee. Now they're all on pinterest and Xbox and don't bother hacking anymore.

Yeah.

Oh that reminds me, a buddy of mine figured out the report cards where done in excel and found the template online for free.

So he would charge kids $50 bucks for a fake report card, he made bank.
