    Yeah that's what we do - tell the kids to use it for their coursework.

    Yeah we had a kid who used to do that with a floppy disk - the teachers fell for it every time and used to send him up to the server room to see if we could help him. We used to let him play Quake with us over the mini lan we had installed in the server room.

    Re: Free Internet Hard Drive from Microsoft

    I've had a kid snap his/her USB key in a USB port before (actually a number of times) then said to the teacher "hmm usb's b0rked." It's then been brought to me in the IT services office and i've gotten out a soldering iron...fixed it and watched the kid stand there bricking it trying to think up excuses why he/she/it STILL hasn't done their GCSE coursework on the third or fourth chance.

    Most amusing.

    We get kids handing in blank cd's saying their courswork is on them. Ah, I wonder if they realise that we know all these excuses, as we invented them when we were in school? :P
