    I left school nearly a quarter of a century ago, and even now I sometimes feel as if my father is about to tell me to get out of bed and go to school at 8.00 am on the dot, and the irony is that my father has been dead for 21 years! As an adult, to a certain degree I feel more like a free spirit, and I would have gone onto further education if it wasn't for the de ja vu feel that school had for me.

    I hate having that de ja vu feeling towards the area that used to I live in, especially that titan of so-called community spirit - the local school. I stopped taking local newspapers because I was sick to death of reading about people I went to school with either committing crime or being victims of one.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    I recall this programme upon my 2nd stint/attempt at College in 1995 and daftly thought at the time Windows 95 = the Year 1995, just like Jarvis from Pulp sang Disco 2000 in 1995 ..... which is equally as crazy on reflection!!

    I can barely recall the Computers at school that we had - though they'd probably be the "old BBC Micro" no doubt, and I can just about recall them at College in 1995 as so wth sides where you put the Floppy Disc in and we still had certain Drives like A and D, that served quick saving of ocuments etc etc and lesser so for the other one (though too I can not recall which was which)!!

    On the subject of Computers and school connections and the sad passing of George A. Cooper as Mr Griffiths, I fondly recall - not because it was Grange Hill - but as what it was about - a man of an older Generation asking a Pupil (namley Akik Raschim) in Series 13 about what does this Computer do and poor Erick fidgiting about with the thing not knowing even then what to do with the "said machine" ..... this too was "only" 1989/1990, but seems such innocent times indeed1!

    Yes, Windows 95 did come out in 1995!

    They used The Rolling Stones song Start Me Up to promote it.

    Windows 95 and 98 used to crash all the time. The first stable version of Windows was XP.
