    If it's something we can get, we will.

    That's a bit out of our league at the moment though. Normal software, maybe. Custom operating systems? We wouldn't have a clue where to start.

    Plus i prefer getting other people to write the code. Last coding project I had to go through myself was at A-Level :-(

    That said, that pizza place would have had one kick-ass ordering system if they were real.

    Actually, I've had a go at this myself - Slax makes an excellent starting point, or at least it did at one point, their website got all out-of-date at one point (reminds me - must check again).

    Mmm, Pizza... I wonder... Should be possible to actually do that for real on the school grounds easily enough, make the A-level students create a system for a working pizza stall...

    It'll only mean more work for you...


    I mean, having to create a macro button for your keyboard to order a double peperoni!

    Might be worth looking to do that for Dominos myself actually.

    Firefox is a must!!!

    There is a ton you can do with firefox on a usb drive. This is a must! This would also allow you to keep a list of favorite sites without having to go to foxmarks or install your bookmarks on someone else's pc.

    Sounds like a web operating system. Couldn't you port something like eyeOS to work on a USB Drive??

    Running Clipmate off a USB stick is very useful, it stores everything that you copy including the hyperlink if you copy off a webpage, does excellent screen capture as well as the ability to export the images directly from clipmate as images ....its a mature product stable, reliable cheap to buy, you can organise your clips into collections .... and so on ..... (more positives i'm singing praises to it)
