This was the last time I could lord my superiority with computers over my classmates, sigh. I still salvaged these two incidents:
- We were given floppy disks to save our excel spreadsheets. Someone asked what they were. I responded “1.44 megabyte thumb drives”. Stunned, the person then asked when floppy drives would become widely available.
- A question on the test asked for the common page that pops up when you load a student web page. They wanted index.html, although my answer of “404 Page Not Found” was better.
- I got bored, so I stirred up trouble by creating a data sheet full of randomly generated numbers increasing the file size to about 480 megs. I raised my hand stupidly complaining about the fact that the file wouldn’t transfer so he smartly emailed the file to himself. Temple has a 500 meg inbox limit. I hope he had some stuff already in there. tee hee hee
