So I created this really cool messaging program for my CS class in high school. Though when I say for - I mean for the students which were bored when the teacher told us how to "resize images in Word".
I used python and tkinter to create it all, and didn't even need to touch sockets. (Mostly because I didn't know how to use them back then, but also because I kept the messages in a file on the school nas.)
Anyway, the program worked and we used it every week, with me listening to suggestions and improving it each week. I even managed to create a sort of notification system.
But sadly, my teacher found out about it and shut it down.

Have you ever had a similar experience?

    Why did she shut it down though?
    Sounds pretty damn awesome, must have taken a lot of time and effort.

    Well done and keep up the good work. And don't care about this thing called school. Teachers there are mostly stupid.

    @rayanon nop, teachers are mostly quite smart. They just have students viewpoints and agenda than students. Stop gratuitously bash schools.

    Was it shut down cause it was using school resources?

    He didn't specify why he shut it down, but probably because some students used it to complain about how boring the lesson was.

    I never did, but in highschool one of my friends redirected our schools website to a gay porn site.
    It was live for a few hours, next day the website and our schools network was shut down, for over a week.

    @nicnaknic Did they change the configuration of the webserver? It seems like you should require a password to do such a thing.

    @sebh0602 I'm not sure really. I think the school just ran it off a local computer, they forgot to lock the computer, he got into the Sites file system and changed up some of the code. I still don't know exactly what he did and how he got Access
