and shopping sites, and email sites, and we aren't allowed to download anything if it isn't for a school project. we can't even right click anymore!!! we can't have a background, nor a screensaver, and we can't edit those anyway, even if we did have right click, because we aren't allowed to. They even removed the crappy games in the start menu!!! and even when we are allow to play games (ie: after school) we can't! cuz they're all blocked and/or deleted! Sucks, right?

That sounds reasonable. It's their hardware. It's their Internet connection. They want you to use it for educational purposes. You are not there to play games. You are there to learn and read books and take tests.

i found it on a list of free games on Wikipedia. Turns out people have been compiling tons of lists, from free FPS's to free MMO's. If you're looking for free games ,they got a bunch there.

My friends and I used to play a lot in school, mostly during our A-Level computing classes (we always sat with computers facing the teacher so he couldn't see ;)). Although we would only play on local servers, and I don't think any of my friends play anymore, I started played online, and I guess I just got addicted :roll:!

When my dad installed Fedora 5, he went to the "extras" repository and found BZflag in the games list. :D
