    When we were doing GCSE English Literature where we had to do essays on prose or poetry, and I am certain that our teacher said that we could write it on a computer and print it out, although handwriting can only be done ion our jotter books of course. Mind you, the same teacher said that all she knew about using a computer was switching it on and that was that.

    I have to say that when it comes to using quotes and all that, the computer is great when it comes to different fonts and sizes in order to distinguish that from ordinary paragraph , and even in the early 1990s my school had such a good computer programme for writing things like that.

    Gone were the days when the printing paper had holes at the side and had a green and white "zebra crossing" design on them, and we were onto proper A4 sheets of paper to print out on.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Your School must've been way a-head of mine then George - in what they knew of PC's

    At my Secondary School's - though the first one was 1988 to 1990 - they probably was'nt of a standard of the old Micros from Auntie Beeb Days and we hardly ever had Computer Lessons anyhow and at my 2nd nobody got near unless it was for a very, very special reason - as I have said elsewhere on the Forum an old friend indtroduced me to this Club - one Luchtime and showed me a bit of stuf similar to PaintArt/Wizzard and even then quite franly as I had no interests in PCs never got the Art side to it lol

    I very very much recall the Paper you describe (and I can recall round my area/way) through Family working in Computers in such fields - that this was immensly popular until the mid 90s at least. They used to bring me bucket loads of rejected stuff home - that gave me much time to adjust to being in a Boat as you found yourself - at the Mercy of Bullies, finding an alernative. Sadly though for Prininting Reasons or the good old fashoined Pen/Hand Writing - the other side was often terrible unless you had a real qaulity Pen like a "Felt" or "Ball-Point" one

    Same here. A different thing, but I remember teachers printing out sheets for us on those Gestetner duplicator machines.

    I often wondered whether my Art teacher would have accepted me doing my homework on the Paint facility on my computer and printed it out that way - or whether that would be cheating?
