F*** this

Fing mother fer god dit fing horse s... Which brings me to my latest outbreak of unending cursing. Here's the basics... My engineering graphics teacher requires the final to be turned in on a burnt disc. In a normal school this would be fine... But there is always a catch. Thanks to the Dept of Transportation and Defense our computers are completely and utterly useless... We did in fact pay $3000 for a Dell (supposedly for program licenses) that is in my opinion not worth $100 because of how much they've restricted it (even though they're ours). My computer got the worst of the "security updates" since it is now rendered useless. I cannot burn discs, defrag, install/uninstall programs, send emails containing excel spreadsheets, look at any website with words containing game, adult, adult content (yeah that wallpaper site we have), curse words, firearms, weapons (makes ordering paintball supplies hard), fun, entertainment, and other sites containing remotely useful information. Granted hackers could probably somehow break into my computer, hack into the network, find out our academy has ridiculously low funding, and come to the sad conclusion that even government officials working for the DoT don't know this academy exists... Which brings me to the other dumb topic. The instructor is too stubborn of an a to change the policy so that I can hand it in on a thumb drive, or through email... Apparently that is too hard. Hell I could even print out the damn thing. Thing is all of this could have been avoided if I followed my psychic intuition and had emailed him the files immediately afterwards because there was this feeling in the back of my head that the files did not quite burn right... All in all this has been a huge waste of time and caused so much frustration over something that can be simply overcome but cannot due to incompetency of a few people... (I have corrected my teacher on a few things in that class). This has resulted in me having to take the final all over again during a normal school week and my computer still doesn't burn discs properly. If you have suggestions about burning a disc without using roxio, or windows, or anything that requires an install, please tell me... The only thing that is keeping me from freaking out is the fact that I know I can easily pass the final...

EDIT: forgot my emoticons I was so angry
