Okay so basically in our school we have a program up called Ranger 5, stops us doing alot of stuff, we can't run .exe files, go on certain sites, it logs all of our activity and stops us accessing properties of most programs.

Before now to run .exe files we saved them into the actual Ranger file system on the server by doubl clicking on programs we could scroll back through files till we got there. This has now been shut down to us and we can't run any .exe files. I was after some suggestions about how to get into the file system?

We've tryed typing C: etc. but it closes as soon as you doothe double dots, we've tyed in \\Ranger\SCHS-SERVER which is the file name but it says access is denied from the adress bar.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Go to your staff paper and re-write this song a half step down so on the paper it'll be like you have a "C" just move it down to a "B#"




Know your theory, then play like you don't.

...How do you run any word processing, browser or ANYTHING without running .exe?


Sorry i meant we can't run anytihng off our files, the files for taht are saved in the C; drive which we cant access atm. Theres a common drive, a pupil to staff drive, our own drive and we can't run .exe off any of them.

I would assume there are certain programs that are 'permitted' to run by this 'Ranger 5'.
I wouldn't try too hard to get round it, kid, or it might have to go all SkyNet on your ass and kill you.

I think he means exe files that install stuff, or maybe those programs like browsers, etc....are unblocked.
Looking for a new sig!

I'm more woried about getting suspened tbh We tryed lagging up the server long enough for a window to stay open by d/l a tonne of pictures into a file and copying it thousends of times, the server is only 250gb and we got to about 17 on the file, then got caught. We got our asses whipped for that one That was last year though...

If you can get by without internets for what you want to do, why not just pull the network cable?

sounds like my school...we have this new keylogger program that when you type a bad word its sent to the principal and Head computer guy who typed it, when, and what computer and usually you get called down to the office for it or the principal comes in the class running to find out what you doing. We just got it this year so we're thinking of what could we do with this.

So a bunch of people in our class typed in words that would come up into google like.."big titties, porn, nude, pussy, ****, ****." other assorted words to see how fast the principal came running..and damn was it fast!

Because then we have no accounts on the system, it wont let us log on. Although maybe we might find someway around it so ill have another look into that soon, cheers for that one. Im just after a brainstorm for ideas, they dont have to work, or even look like they'll work. All we want is a way to run a SNES emulator for bomberman we tryed a N64 emulator as well but there just crap

LOLZ @ the key logger!!!

As for blocked sites... could you start your own site, with the SNES emulator running on the site(rather than a dl version, like online manic miner), using an unblocked address?

Well we've managed to find a proxy site that works so we can get on any site for the moment... 99% of proxy sites are blocked I think, all of our working ones have been in other languages...

We tryed searching for online SNES emuators today, there don't seem to be any, we also tryed DOS ones except we can access DOS or command prompt to run it.

We found an online NES one though. We can get internet and flash games so tbh we'll probably just end up sticking with them if all else fails

EDIT: we thought of the linux thing, except with DOS, running DOS off a disk and using a DOS emulator. We can't run things off flash dirves/memory sticks we've tryed that We don't want to accidently screw up the PCs and want to avoid getting expelled so don't want to try anything too radical...

Best thing to do if they have a keylogger like that is to type something rude on your friend's computer when he ain't looking, and then you can laugh when he gets in trouble.

My school luckily asked the school board to unblock all the sites, except porn, so we can access all sites, and some kids hid some emulators like SNES and N64 on the Z drive

and I typed boobs into google on my friends computer and he got called down to the office.

Damn you people get a lot of computer access during school.

We only get to use them on rare occasions, when the subject calls for it. On average it's probably once or twice every month. 50 minutes each time.
Not only would it disrupt the fabric of time and space, but it would totally ruin the surprise!

I asked my school for admin rights so I could complete my computer class course work and I got them =)

Are there CD/DVD drives? If so you could use a Linux Live bootdisc and then setup whatever emu's and **** you wanted to play on that.
