Meaning, if the board bought X number of licenses for, say Dreamweaver or Photoshop, and the program caused many systems to crash and burn due to an unpatched memory leak, or something... then the school board would be able to whip around and sue for a faulty product impeaching the "security" of the students' personal information.

I couldn't stand my old high-school's admin though. The only time I ever saw him, were the times he went out for a smoke or lunch, or whenever he came to bust me for breaking through DeepFreeze and doing network-wide installs of Quake and Doom for LAN matches. It wasn't so much the fact that I was breaking the rules, but more the fact he wasn't learning from his mistakes. If this kid knows the password to DeepFreeze and pretty much the rest of the administrative programs, then change the bloody passwords.

I found out the passwords from the old sysadmin, who, much like myself, couldn't stand the new sysadmin. Hee hee, all the admin passwords were "greece", as the old admin was Greek.

LOL-thats good. I changed the visiting person's password at my (old) school (it was student for user, student for pass) and I entered the network as an admin and changed the password to like a 23 character password. ;-D

I set up an admin account for myself, and changed the vice principals password.

Me had fun....lol

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

I did alot of the same.
Let's just say, when I switched schools, the sysadmin's hair went from gray, back to its natural colour.

ya, there are only 2 linux users in my whole school, (me being one) who have both been accused of hacking (which we never did) walking down the hall together. People back away, and everyone in the tech department skips a heartbeat. Funny thing is, I haven't even done anything to my current school network...yet. Excluding taking Austrumi in and booting it, using the tech's internet (whose internet isn't filtered) and then they can't monitor me with their precious software. I tell them sometimes that the only reason they can monitor me, is because I let them. I just adjust the firewall, and they can't see it (clueless). Or, I unblocked sites their proxy blocked. Besides that, I'm a perfect law abiding student...

Heh... It's the seventh System Administrator Appreciation Day on 27th July 2007.

I'm definitely writing a thank-you letter to my school's SYSADMIN.

Incidentally, there's a nice video on this website:--- (spot the BOFH!)
