[ale] a specter is haunting our school systems!

I have to say that I just now picked up this blog spot and I have to  
wonder one of two things...

1). First this is a fake. Can this be real? Come on....

2). If it is, then I have to say this is the funniest thing I have  
ever read!! and I am not kidding. It sounds like some time warp out of  
Leave it to Beaver. Anyone that would say that the whole world runs on  
Windows, is well ignorant. Next, for her to say that she tried Linux  
in college as have a whole lot of other people sounds like something  
out of "Reefer Madness". I feel really bad for this teacher because  
she sounds like she will actually research this "linux" thing... and  
when she does she is going to feel completely ridiculous. Who hasn't  
sent that email that you just wish you could reach through the ethers  
and retrieve... W'help this will be hers.

I suggest we all take a moment, contemplate, and then thanks whatever  
creator or power that be that we aren't this person. She can take  
solace in that a good laugh was had... at her expense, but a good  
laugh none the less.

Let's all send her our old M$ disks so she can have them to hand out  
to folks. Then she can find out what M$ will do to someone that hands  
out old copies in violation of the EULA. They are good folks in  
Redmond, they won't mind. Just ask the Philadelphia School District  
regarding a little old potential illegal load of Windows 98 on one of  
their systems. I am sure it was fun producing all the documentation  
for every windows system running in their district, and not too too  
expensive. No raise for teachers that year as someone in Redmond's  
License Security Department got a bump instead.... Not a bad haul for  
them kindly folks @ M$.

Merry Christmas to all from Karen XXXXXXXXX of XXXXXXX Middle School  

PS maybe we can build a reality show around this Karen and her  
exploits in the realm of computer policy enforcement.
