Short Computer Period January 27, 2005
Today is thursday, and thursdays have always been easy and carefree. This semester is even more easy than the last, because instead of Sports Fiction (where we just watch movies), I have TA for my networking teacher, so I can work on my website study for my other class using the computers. My form hasn’t been processed yet, so today, I left at around 10:15 with joseph and he came over. I shall talk about what I did in class.
I pulled a slight continuation of the Rogue Computer Mouse prank today. I once again took an unused mouse from an unused computer, and then Joseph and I stuck it into Tyler’s (the guy that sits to joseph’s right) computer. We put joes computer over the wire and put some computer cover up to his computer, so he wouldn’t notice the wire.
Since I pranked both of them a mere two days ago, and since they’re both still licking their wounds, I didn’t do anything massive with the new power I had over his computer. Instead, I started off making slight nudges while he was doing stuff. So slight that he didn’t even notice someone was doing it to him. When he tried clicking windows closed or clicking buttons to continue, I would shift it ever so slightly at the last moment, so he would miss whatever he was trying to click.
Finally he got to his reading material and started reading and taking notes. While joseph spectated, every time he looked down, I quickly moved and closed the window he was reading, from the comfort of a seat two chairs away from him. When he looked up, his reading was gone. He muttered some “what the…”s and reopened his work. Once he started looking down again, I did the same thing. Its a wonder how he didn’t put the pieces together and realize his disappearing windows was my doing.
Then I got busted.
The teachers assistant that helps out our teacher was walking around, when he noticed that the optical mouse on one of the computers was gone. Since they’re so easy to steal, he assumed someone had just pocketed it. He called out to the teacher across the room and said that one of the mice (?) was gone. She started getting angry and annoyed, and it was at that moment, I quickly reached over and yanked the chord out of tylers computer.
Standing up, I raised the mouse in the air and said “Oh, we were using it over here”. The teacher replied that i should “never take things off computers” and that “I could be expelled”. I said sorry, and sat back down. But that was not the end of that.
Joseph and I always make the most out of our educational opportunities. To my left, two chairs away, was Avery. He was talking to his friend, leaning to the left, with his mouse just sitting there, ready to be taken advantage of. I motioned to joseph, and then reached over and closed his window.
When he turned back and noticed his screen cleared, and immediately looked to the right and accused the innocent me. I once again pulled an academy award worthy acting job and threw off all suspicion, with a highly controlled face, and a “wow… it closed by itself?”. He then shrugged, opened it again, and started talking to his friend.
I whispered a new plan to joseph, and the reached over once again. With a few swift and silent clicks, I completely logged him out of his computer, until it was the windows 2000 login screen. I kinda forget what happened after that, but I was never accused, apprehended, or convicted. We left shortly after.
Joseph came over after school at a little past 10, and we sat and played playstation while I got my website transferred to a two server setup. It was down for a night and half a day, so for a while I couldn’t post pics. Now I think everything should be a lot faster.
There was tennis practice today at 2:30, but joseph and I were too involved in our nice little playstation adventure, so he said he’d leave at 2:45. When that time rolled around, he said he’d leave at 3. Finally, he died a stupid death, which brought us back about half and hour of hard work since we last saved. So we both screamed in frustration, and he got fed up and left for practice. I’m lazy so I stayed home working on some stuff (my employment of course). I’ll play later tonight probably.
I didn’t go play tennis today. Eh. Season starts next week, and if weather isn’t good in the very near future, then I’ll have to go into tryouts in the condition I am. Confidence. Have confidence.
Too bad I can’t blog smells. My desk drawer and my backpack both smell VERY weird.
