The hs I went to got hooked up with qwest bitches... they broke every fucking networking rule there is known to man and God... Examples:
Who needs to run the cables through the roof... haning florcent fixtures are waiting for us!
Improperly hooking up switches (I mean... how hard is that to ensure you get all the systems hooked up to a freak'n switch)
Running one cable between wings (approx 100 computers in each wing)
Server is in a shack next to I-10 [leaks/padlock/no air circulation]
We had found 3 improperly done rj-45 connections
Still didn't have one room finished hooking up after 7 months, teacher gave up and did it himself in clear violation of contract...


Eh, 'nuff for now. We did get 40kb/sec transfers if you can belive... (incoming to school was t3... so it should have been at least 200......... minimally..........(on good servers too... known for 300kb/s +)

Anyway... yea.

well, mckinney is under the "robin hood" act. which means that their budget is so much more than other school's that they have to give money to the poorer schools. and even with this, MHS has more money than it knows what to do with.

spending money on fiber optics is total bullshit for a public school. their is no reason in hell anyone needs to download anything that fast, or of that magnitude in a classroom.
