    Even at College doing this we'd have probably been in "nearly" as much trouble as at School

    Fair play to you here though Mulletino!

    Same here - but i wish I had "dreamed up the idea lol - that would of been awesome I think - to be frank

    I recall that on Grange Hill in 1992 when Robson gave Dennis and Andy lines - they did this (allmost in the same vain as Freddie's PE Kit Reminder Service) by priniting it out on Computer!

    It is strange to think - that thinking back that 1992 was modern times (with the Internet and Computers in the full throttle of really getting going) I think at leasrt as I got to know the Internet 6 years later in 1998!

    We were allowed to print out homework

    Either on a typewriter or more recent; a PC printer

    Nowadays a lot of schools wont accept it as the homework could be copied from the internet

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    True Twocky yer - though we could do a-similar in later years at College - eg after the 'net became popular (though they'd not be overly keen) I'd sense mind, but I guess Homework printed is "accepted" as though it's wrong - many can "copy + paste" to much more of a degree than even 10 years since (and though it's wrong copying from the et of course), to me even seeking out "Homework" on the 'net is equally as wrong/bad!!

    Just as long as you edit it, such as changing a word here & there

    & of course writing it out from the print-out makes it look like it's your own work
