Welp, the school IT department probably hates me now lol

I've been coding during class (Cuz bored) and the teachers, school administrators, and even the IT department try to block AHK
Problem for them is that I have it on a flash drive, so they can't do anything to stop me besides completely forcing me off the computer... or just giving me a chromebook lol

- @Bobo: I think you missed one, and it's kind of relevant to this website. Cheers.

- @Bobo (ii): Yeah, maybe the best Google Doodle ever. Cheers.

- @Delta Pythagorean: First of all, good use of the word 'welp', which I'm not that familiar with.
- Is it that simple, one student is using AHK in class, and thus, every teacher in the school knows about it and wants it banned?
- What's so bad about lessons? Subjects you don't want to learn, slow or unengaging content delivery, something else?
- I would recommend enthusiastically embracing any opportunities you get in school, and studying maths and/or science and/or any special subjects you like where possible.
- Sometimes I like to watch the way that teachers try to explain things, and some teachers can be entertaining to talk to if you find some common ground. Teachers generally want to help their students, I do find it a bit amusing the idea of 'oh I'm a problem child, teachers don't know what to do with me'.
- Do a YouTube video demonstrating AHK skills maybe.
- I would also recommend reading at least one short book on any subject you like. Self-teaching and reading books in advance is the key to success at university interviews and degrees. Also, if you can find any mentors, e.g. ex-students for occasional subject discussion/tips, that can be great. Cheers.

Well, bc MosaLingua's language teaching premium app for Italian (iOS) went free (discovered using 'App Advice's > 'Apps gone free')
„Learn Italian with MosaLingua“ by MosaCrea Limited
https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/italien ... 80275?mt=8
... so, once I started watching one of its introductional videos, that was linked to YouTube ... I saw this
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4A244bn4WG8 ... simply to be advised there to have a look at that as well ...

I guess that means you all have to learn German soon :!: ... and if it's only to post your next request at AHK's German section :mrgreen:

And yes, YouTube's "Polyglot Gathering"-channel looks quite interesting too :thumbup:

“Yes let’s definitely encourage quantifying a person’s value to society. Let’s encourage what is at its very essence, segregation. Everyone is equal. Some more than others. Fundamental rights are a privilege.”... this is a horrible idea. I see the drive for it, but this could be catastrophic. This is encouraging social classes, judging people on what others think of you, not judging a person by yourself.... this is in part critiqued by blade runner, aldous huxley’s a brave new world, 1984, animal farm, black like me, the list goes on...
