Getting a little off topic here, but since Wikipedia is blocked in every school for some reason, I decided to see if I could go to Wikipedia in another language. So I typed in fr,wikipedia,org, and it brought me to the french Wikipedia page.

So just in case you guys need Wikipedia and it's blocked (it most likely will be) just go to Wikipedia in a foreign language and use google translate.
wikipedia is not blocked at my school
Same, Wikipedia is not blocked at my school either

I don’t have limitations on browsers. I usually use Microsoft Edge, and somethimes google.

In case you need a good translator, use DeepL

SCHOOL COMPUTERS

Discuss about your school's computers. It can be about their OS, what you can't do on them, what browser they run, how long you have and what you do on them.

RULES:
  • Do not say your school's name or location
    Do not say any of your teachers names
    Follow this

Ok so my school district is old so they do not play around.

Before we got new shiny Dell latitude 3189's (thank God they are not Chromebook) we had HP stream 11's with 2gb of ram, 24gb system memory, Intel Celerons, 720p 3fps screen, it was just crummy. It was a HP stream 11 Edu edition of some sort. It was horrible. Now the latitude 3189's have a intel 17, 12gb dual channel ram and its good, but we have so much school software from the school that it feels like a stream 11. Oh yeah did i mention that for some ungodly reason our streams were running Windows XP, then Vista for half of my life in middle school. On our new computers everything is locked down. They blocked scratch because our school does not use it, any website not approved by the IT people in our school (IT is the technical people) And even Minecraft does not work. So, it sucks. I miss the windows XP version with no blocking. Also, they can see your screen 24/7 and send a message to your parents of what you're doing in less than 3 seconds. They even blocked Task Manager.

Thats it though. Hopefully nothing horrible is on this forum

Because of the Don't read the computer's specs rule, the only stuff I know about them are that the powerful ones run

Windows 7 Professional with Aero Theme
Lenovo Thinkstation
An intel proceesor (they won't tell us what processor)

And I learnt Scratch when the computers had

Windows XP Professional
Adobe Flash 9
IE 6 or 8

Once I started using 2.0, I thought that 2.0 was an older version and 1.4 was the newest 0_0

Why can't you read the computer's specs? That's kind of a weird rule… You can look at the specs if you have Windows 7 but pretend to be selecting something in the “Computer” display with the hard drives and USB drives.

i can search up my computer on google, but it looks like it was made for schools, so there are NO review videos on them
(If you are curious what my computer is, It's a Dell latitude 3189. With an intel Pentium silver of some sort I believe)

Oh, yea for some REALLY weird reason, they blocked the download of Chrome Browser, but we are luckily not using IE, or edge. We use Google re- skinned to look like Edge. I could not tell you how or why. The only reason I know is because I went on a Chrome only site and it worked. Then i looked it up.

So this year my school has started to make everyone “rent” out Chromebooks, which is fine, way easier than getting Chromebooks out of the cart during class. However, from my experience, the Chromebooks are incredibly slow. It takes forever to log in and getting Chrome to load in on start-up, and also I have to use Google Docs a lot for class and it LAGS. Typing won't show anything for a few seconds and it's so annoying when I'm taking notes. I'm guessing the stuff my school downloaded for the Chromebooks are the reason why it's so laggy and slow but I can't do anything about it because only administrators can manage the apps.

Google translate isn’t known for being the most accurate though
also Wikipedia isn’t blocked in mine, the teachers just hate it
What about the simple english wikipedia? Something like simple,wikipedia,org?

Are you able to delete them?they can see where we go if they look (like screen time) but I don’t think they record our screen, that’s excessive
