    Hi, I got this email in my student inbox from a student (its been sent to everyone at the college):

    "if any1 wants any copied DVD's, Video's or CD's E-mail me at 22480! i can get any u want! 2 quid each wot eva it is!"

    The a few hours later:
    "i can even get copies that arent out yet e.g. the ring etc..."

    Highly illegal might I add. The simpleton also emailed it to every college staff, including the network administrators and principal! I'm certian he'll be banned off the system now!

  3. He'll probably just get a minor reprimand for the piracy thing, it's his spelling that'll get him kicked out.

    I lost that a long time ago, but then I had pancakes, and everything was better.

    Oh, and just to clarify--I couldn't relate to half of the comments because of anything I did--I just work with a bunch of people who can't seem to distinguish between "reply" and "reply all."

    To make matter worse, I work for an internet sevice provider--IOW, people who should know better....

    Bacon pancakes?


    They don't actually give you hope for humanity, but after you eat a full order at the Pancake House, you don't care anymore...
