    It's probably there for a WIFI point but they forgot to put one there.

    If I saw an open ethernet socket in a public building just laying around, I'd plug in a wireless adapter. Woo free net and free access to the LAN.

    My school has tons of openly visible Ethernet cables, so my friend decides to cut one and it turns out it went to the teachers computer.

    For the next 3 weeks we couldn't use that room due to a "virus".

    Your friend is an asshole. I've dealt with "funny" shit heads like this, and it's no fun hearing a teacher complain and send you emails, telling you to fix the "virus."

    Especially when your I.T. guy probably had to fix it, because odds are he had 50 other things on his plate, each one a hell of a lot more important than replacing a patch cable at a computer.

    Not to mention the fact your teacher wouldn't use that lab for a while, meaning NONE of his classes could use the lab, thus depriving other students of learning opportunities.

    Also, thread rules...

    stupid, repetitive, or extremely damaging pranks:
    "I unplugged my friend's mouse at school and they had to call over a teacher, I'm so cool"
    "I told my friend to delete system32 and he did lmfao"

    The chimps in our IT blocked Google.
    According to one of the IT guys at our school, our state capitol blocks Google for government offices. Apparently its on a "need to use" basis only.

    Anyone know if this at the top is normal? Noticed it for the first time earlier at school, appears to be an Ethernet wall socket next to the ceiling with cables between it. Says CAT 5E on it, wasn't sure if they were using it by necessity to string multiple rooms together or what.
    I know older schools just have ethernet run along the edges of walls because its easier. Not sure why they would have an outlet there (my elementary school had that sometimes too), but maybe its for a wifi adapter. I dunno.

    I don't think that rule truly applies to him since the he didn't do it personally or mislead his friend to do it.

    Actually, its sort amusing that apparently inmates actually retrofitted ethernet into all the school buildings in my state. Even our private schools. So unless the building was built in the late 90's, pretty much every school has those. Even my college dorm does.

    Pretty okay, depending on the game and how well it was ripped.
    I suggest using Dolphin. It's both Wii and Gamecube.

    maybe the fan part is just really long. I mean you saw how small the 680 was compared to the 580, maybe they did it with the 670 and MSI just went "LOL BIGFAN"
    Called it.

    one final photoshops assignment left, and a few more ones I have stacked up. Then 2 weeks of rework and I have 12 weeks off!

    Time to bother all the local computer shop owners for a job.
