so my school computers have had their security decimated by the kids in my class(it's an IT class, what did they expect?). some fool forgot to block chrome extensions, so everyones using a vpn to get around the schools blocking system, which for the most part is just over the network. and theres this one kid whos bought like 5 domains over the past couple of months due to the school blocking his site repeatably(its nothing special, just a bunch of open source games). they got minecraft working within the first week of school too.

the chromebooks are locked down a lot better though. you cant even get an ad-blocker(WHICH THEY HAVE PRE-INSTALLED ON THE DESKTOPS I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THEY DO NOT LET US HAVE ONE ON THE CHROMEBOOKS????). they also have this jank method of letting teachers control chromebooks, which has led to habit of putting "hi " in the address bar while i play solitaire in class because its the most interesting game to play on these things.
same- my school uses securly but people keep finding unblocked game websites because the school can’t block all of them fast enough
Same, except now it blocks literally everything.
Web Archive is blocked.
Inspect element is blocked.
We once needed an image for an assignment, and it was blocked by Securly.
Turbowarp is blocked because of “games”. However, Scratch isn't blocked.
Mega is blocked because of “Anonymous Proxies” and not “Streaming Media” unlike the image.
Then we have another extension that blocks literally everything else, including unblocked stuff.
And the website of that extension is also blocked by Securly.
Turning off extensions is blocked by the district.
They always pre-load the extensions.
Getting new extensions is blocked.
Then we have like 2 classes that have Macs that only block social media and very inappropriate stuff. But then they restrict videos on certain accounts and it's easy to simply log out of the google account to watch the videos. Sometimes it lets you install extensions but other times it doesn't let you even get in the web store or it says it's blocked by an administrator. And if I bypassed it I might not be in school after that.
For some reason, “Forretress Explosion” videos are also restricted on the accounts. It's probably the “explosion” part, but why.

Fun_Cupcake_i81: What, were you expecting not to see the utc - 12 thing again? THE UTC - 12 THIGN ALWAYS RETURNS. ALWAYS.
medians: I knew it would happen. I was the one who started it last year.
Fun_Cupcake_i81: Well then if you didn't want it back maybe you need to time travel to last year and fix that

Oh wait if you could time travel I think we all know exactly when you would go-

user2: But this is medians we're talking about, so “from 2.0” can mean the same thing as “from five seconds ago”.

I don't know what computers we have, but they're the ones with a massive separate box and a monitor. We're only allowed to use them in specific lessons, and they have this thing where the teacher can see our screens on their computer, and lock us out if we're doing something we shouldn't (and share their screens onto ours for demonstrations).
We also have Chromebooks which teachers can book out for lessons. I find them really annoying and we only use them for research tasks.
We also have our own school email.

Hi!
I’m like Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Grange Hill, BBC Ghosts, Murder Most Unladylike and some other stuff. I also like reading, writing and listening to music.

Generation 5: the first time you see this copy and paste it on top of your sig in the scratch forums and increase generation by 1. Social experiment.

Yeah. I've been trying to find other gaming sites as well since my school blocked coolmathgames and 3kh0(if you don't know 3kh0 is another gaming site)

I feel like at that rate it would be easier to just get individual computers

Legend has it that to this day, there is still no effort to patch the GoGuardian freeze bug

My school literally has a application forced-installed on our school computers called GoGuardian. It allows teachers to literally track you not only at school but at home to. They have remote access to your computer and can literally track whatever your doing. I know its supposed to be a good thin but it sounds creepy…..

i searched it up and:

Wikipedia wrote:

In computer networking, a thin client is a simple computer that has been optimized for establishing a remote connection with a server-based computing environment. The server does most of the work, which can include launching software programs, performing calculations, and storing data.
i feel like i'm mostly correct

i think there was once a lawsuit against goguardian once for recording people via the computer webcam without people's permission (i think they removed that feature since) so yeah goguardian has a reputation

i don't get why schools track student's computers i think they don't need to do that

I agree. The CIPA law doesn't say anything about tracking our browsing history, only blocking inappropriate content.
