    We've had this conversation many times, where you claim making low 6 figures is not very much. Housing costs vary greatly, within 100 miles you have major cities where houses are 6-7 figures, then you have an hour away in the country where houses can be found for under $100k.

    For your info, the average price of a house in your town is over 220K, with an average income of less than $40K. So yeah, pretty low.

    $224k is the average price of a home, and an average family income is $70k. I fail to see your point though, my point is that housing cost varies greatly depending on where you live here.

    Haha, believe me, South East Essex does not look like that at all! ;)

    It's a nice shot, WeatherMan. Looks like the River Rhine in Germany to me. Do you know which river it is?

    I reinstalled Windows 7 Pro on my old HP Pro box yesterday since dual-booting 7 and Ubuntu messed everything up. I got this wallpaper from one of the Microsoft themes for Windows 7. No idea where this was taken.

    Back when i was at High school,You couldn't change a damn thing on your account..iirc they ran either Windows 98 or 2000..and had this software called "Workspace Explorer"..(or something along those lines) that would show after the OS start up screen or something along those lines..once you login to that you got a Window with just the installed apps such as Word,Excel,Internet Explorer etc.

    Not just the regular Windows 98/2000 with start and all that,It was very weird. :p

    In my high school we had Dell Dimension 3000's that all had XP licenses on them, but we ran Windows 2000 (Ugh!). Couldn't change anything either. Couldn't even right click anything on the desktop. I would change my wallpaper though and I also ran Firefox portable off my flashdrive (that's how I'd change the wallpaper). Everyone I went to high school with was so computer stupid, so I was always considered very smart.

    Haha same here pretty much. Our computers aren't as restricted as Shane made his High School's out to be though. Currently running Windows 7 Enterprise on our desktops but upgrading to Windows 8.1 Enterprise over summer - I hope to be involved in that upgrade. :)

    When I started High School in September 2009, we had Windows XP Pro and a mix of Office 2003 Pro and Office 2007 Pro Plus. Then in 2011 we upgraded to Office 2010 Pro Plus and in 2012 to 7 Enterprise and then in 2013 to Office 2013 Pro Plus on Office 365. We're now a Microsoft IT Academy, so students get access to free Microsoft software and we also get the latest software and other good stuff like Surfaces too. :)

    It's changed a lot in the 5 or so years I've been there!

    Hey Punk...why did you cover those 2 folders with black lines (using Paint I suppose)? :p
    If it's what I think it is,upload it to me so I can watch too! :D:D:D

    Same here and unfortunately it STILL IS!!!
    And to make things even worse,most of the computers are still on Windows 95 and 98!!!
    Not EVERYWHERE I HOPE,but all those I have seen ARE!!! :eek:
    And in hospitals the image on the monitors looks like crap!
    The horizontal lines are all over the place...and it SUCKS! :(
    I don't know who set all those computers,but he/she/they suck at it lol!

    That makes two of us then.
    Everyone I went to school with was the same situation.All they knew is to go to facebook...lol...

    Ours have some sort of Deep Freeze software installed on them, so whatever change you make to the computer, it'll go back to a normal, untouched seemingly "fresh" install after you reboot. It's awesome.

    We use Deep Freeze on our PC's at school, makes life so much easier to maintain them.

    I am thinking to put Deep freeze on my mom's laptop.
    She complains it works slower every time she uses it to surf the internet...God knows what she does to her laptop and where she surfs.
    Deep freeze would solve that problem.

    Yeah, it's genius. Maybe a slight inconvenience for a user, but it must be amazing for the IT guys.

    We only use them on student machines, and we have folder redirection so the students never even know.

    Nope it's not porn but it's something that cannot be discussed here, hence why I blacked it out. :)
