false. fortunately my small school supply all the high schoolers with MacBook Air's (Early 2015). Right before apple laptops took a turn.

Our school has some Macbooks (Air, early 2015 and Pro, 2015, which are used for video editing) but otherwise our computers are dust-laden Sandy Bridge i3s or E7400s.


I can crash a computer in 30 seconds by running a .bat file with the contents %0|%0.

I can crash a computer in 1 second by yeeting it.

I also now have about 7 GB of viruses on an autorun flash drive.

I got a good one here boys. Its short, but should be funny.

 

My neighbor isn't the smartest, but she's a fellow Missourian and probably one of my closer family friends. She stops in my work (UPS Store, she was shipping a package) and we chat while I enter info. Nothing all too interesting, but I asked if her husband had came across any abandoned PC's or the like at his work (Storage facility). She says no, but that she has a couple laptops for me. One of them was an "Apple laptop" that doesn't turn on. She says if I can fix it I can have it, so I go aight, worse case scenario I can sell it as spares. 

 

This is a 2014 Macbook Air, which has the power button next to volume up on the keyboard.

 

I take it apart, clean the dust bunnies out (needed, it was filthy), and press the power button for 2 seconds (as you need to do on these. If you just tap it it wont turn on.)

 

It turns on no problem. Dead silent, just as it should be.

 

I was expecting water damage, as this woman quite literally has a liquor stores worth of booze in her house (I am her dog sitter as well. I do take a sip sometimes). This laptop is also often left outside on her patio or under the awning by her pool.

 

But nope, got a free Macbook Air and 2 other laptops to clean up and sell off. Feelsgoodman

I used a pre-intel Mac, I can't even tell you which software, but we animated frame by frame and pixel by pixel for some projects. I could have hand drawn things faster I swear! It was the era of Macintosh that was a beige block shaped tower, possibly PowerPC architecture, before the curvy towers. When the Macintosh logo was a rainbow apple man, that old.

Rainbow apple is early PPC or Motorola.

 

My first PC was an iMac G3. It was brand freaking new at the time (that dates me pretty well)

Well it was a good bit newer than my dads Apple IIC+, but certainly not OSX era. You know what, it may have been something similar to the Performa and not a tower actually. It was under a glass desk top at an angle you looked down through the glass at it (looks nice but shitty to use in practice). Maybe that was just the monitor and the tower was to the side, maybe some were AIO and some were towers. This was almost 20 years ago now.

This was 2 years ago: The daycare that I used to attend had WinXP machines connected to the internet without anti-virus, in the hands of little kids. I had a copy of Malwarebytes on a USB, and I scanned all the PCs (which were IBM Thinkpads) and I found like 4000 problems on each laptop...Needless to say, they got rid of them 3 months later...Now that I volunteer at their sister company, I hate Win8....Usable but I still hate it.

The thing is, Malwarebytes is very good at some attacks but less good at others...so there could have been a lot more.

 

And yes, preschoolers will instantly click on "Get free smilies! Just download WannaSmile.exe!"


I can crash a computer in 30 seconds by running a .bat file with the contents %0|%0.

I can crash a computer in 1 second by yeeting it.

I also now have about 7 GB of viruses on an autorun flash drive.

I keep remembering random things.

You can literally reset any user account password on OSX from a certain version, idk which one though

My mom changed the admin and my password on our Mac Mini to stop me from using it, I changed it in recovery mode and she wondered why I could access my account. And I changed the passwords on a iMac in elementary school and left the password on a sticky note and the IT dept wondered how I could change the password...ffs why does a 8 year old know more than the IT dept

The IT team at my school hasn't figured out to set a BIOS password, so I have installed Windows 10 on three of the computers. The wifi password is also pretty insecure, so I connected them with a simple brute-force password attack.

Luckily our 1 person IT dept at my school knows what she's doing. When every classroom has at least 1 Mac and no one uses them...time to install Windows

Back when I was younger, I accidentally set a BIOS password on one of the newer laptops (Latitude) they had. Nobody ever found a way to fix it. (Well, at least that school year.)
