    I'm the network administrator for my school district and I just have teamviewer setup at home then, i run teamviewer off a flash drive. I monitor my main PC at home with it too.

    but I don't condone this. hehe. I get kids in trouble for doing stuff like this with the principles. hahaah i love it :love:

    Oh and its more than likely a content filter not a firewall. If your trying to browse to certain content on the web.

    not interested in a serious relationship at the moment, married to my work.

    you'd be the first to complain if my hot wife wants to be reviewed all the time

    WOW 5 hours between classes, I could hardly stand waiting for half an hour. If you have a smartphone and a netbook I'd suggest to tether that boredom away but even then 5 hours would still be too long. Studying/socializing and chatting online as others have suggested would make a good daily routine at least you're getting some of your time back.

    I expect good writing in a tech forum where people are generally intelligent.

    I expect "u" and "ud" in a text message from a 12 year old girl.

    This ain't no english class :p

    Seriously though, except for "u" and "ud", and the "hr" instead of hour, and 2 commas, everything is perfect. Your response was harsh to his post

    And who said 12 year olds aren't allowed in this forum? This forum is open to all ages, including anyone who feels like they want to "write like a 12 year old girl"

    If someone feels that way they should not be in this forum unless asking for links to a good psychologist. Of which they still should not be in this forum as that is not tech related :p

    yeah i wish i had instead of playing games on my Laptop
    Studying makes the exams easy i did fail a couple in year 10 (I took some a year early)
    And i had to retake them the next year
    After the failures i stopped playing games and i passed with really good grades would have been easier though if i hadn't of wasted time

    The RDP will work but not well enough when considering ping

    meh, high school isn't that important until grade 11~12, and not that hard either. 5 hours of studying would cover for ~3 weeks time of studying

    Gotta agree with that. Though, I guess my situation is slightly different since Id id my high schooling in India (different education board). I had the time of my life in high school, just studied enough to get average results. The studied well for my SATs and SAT subject tests, got a great score, and here I am, in the US,. College is a different ball game though. Gotta study a lot now.

    when I was in this situation at the community college, the gym became my friend. I worked out, meet cool dudes and hot chicks. I balled with the fellas and joined flag football. You can do a lot with that time.

    Not to mention bypassing the firewall at your school could get you into quite a bit of trouble and complete loss of computer access...

    Don't most schools have you sign an Internet Policy that you should follow? Hate to break it to you, most school firewalls these day's are pretty protected and a lot of ports will be blocked. RDP being one for any outbound connectivity.

    Proxies I wouldn't recommend, you have no idea where your jumping through to get an i-net connection.

    +1 to tethering. Goes through your phone, doesn't break any policies, and nothing gets recorded via the IP address of the internal network. Especially if they are using SonicWall.
