As it should be.

Faculty/staff have to perve the "fun stuff" at home, so why should students get special treatment? :)

Thats one way of looking at it, and that excuse would work if it wasn't for the fact that I often say I feel like some sort of Godlike being or evil mastermind when using the monitoring software to watch the students and take control of their computers at will MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

On the upside every time a student plays a game I do find interesting I usually take control of their keyboard and mouse :lol:

I'm working as a freight forwarder. Mainly concentrating on seafreight however with the current situation you have to be flexible if you want to keep your job, so I'm "branching" in to logistics as well.

I just found out I've been awarded Level IV (highest) in Fire Protection Engineering Technology (Fire Alarm Systems) by the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET). Basically the equivalent to a Professional Engineer specializing in fire alarms.
