Playing Sven Coop, gMod, Battlefield, Command and Conquer Generals and many more...

My PC is the one on the log-on screen. We even have a fellow female LAN Party'er! That deserves respect

Maybe we should organize a giant cross-world LAN party using Hamachi or another VPN system.

That would sound about right, I could see my Uni letting us do this but never our school... we weren’t even allowed mobile phones back in school

I can see this becoming the official post your Lan party photos thread, might have to dig some of mine out... we had a crazy 3 day one last summer... can’t remember if we took any photos or not!

Actually this is was at my school, we were about 45 people, we also had another lan in february with 30 people. The entire network was done in about 10 minutes, which explains the cable mess.

The Uni events are in february and october, with 300 and 700 people respectively.

Wtf was the reasoning behind this; at our school we are required to have laptops for work and the last 2 weeks I've spent surfing the internet in class.

By school I mean high school where you go from 11-16, they caused a lot of trouble so the school banned them, although everyone still brought them in anyway.

In university, which I think your referring to as school? We can have whatever we want, people often walk out of tutorials to answer their phone and a lot of people just mess about on laptops.

Ah that makes sense, what I'm refering to as school is what the Americans call high-school, i.e. 16-18 (or 19 depending on what you choose).
This year I'm taking a general electronics (electronics, house installations, automation and everything electrical) class; next year will be just electronics (computer hardware, (CC)TV, some programming, AV).

Actually I think my last school (13-15) also banned cell-phones and MP3 players in class, but nobody really cared there either.

If the teachers see you texting in class, usually they'll just tell you to put it away, but in middle school (age 11-14, grade 6 - they'd take your phones.

The administors (school staff, principals, etc) will take your phone on sight...

I bet you didn't know you can refuse to give them your phone if they ask?

If they ask for your phone, and you don't give it to them, they can't do anything. They can't take it by force. If you do decide to give it to them it must be returned as soon as you ask for it, end of the lesson/day or not. If they don't, its classed as theft. Seriously, I should know. I did it once and got the teacher into trouble once I made a formal complaint. Needless to say we never really saw eye to eye after that day but it was fun from that point on. She never picked on me again

Seriously though. They're not your parents. They have no more rights than any other person. Your parents can probably take it off you if they wanted If they (teachers) use any force to take it, its theft. End of. You have to be willing

At my last school phone's were taking from students when they saw it, but they got it back after school.

But there was 1 student that refused to give her phone, and after a times asked, she was said to leave the school for the rest of the day and the next day she would must reported to the school head, but even after saying that she refused to leave the school.

After a few minutes the police was called and after a few minutes they arrived but she still refused to leave the school and she was removed by force and was banned from that school.

But she was known as a trouble maker, and this was the last school for 12-16 in our town so she had to go to another town to go to school.

Yup. If they want my phone, they can get a court order. I'm not handing it over.
