IBM PC’s and the Prep School

This dream was clearly set in the late 1980’s or early 1990’s.

Dreamed that an old friend of mine had been hired to install IBM PC’s in a prep school  At first, they bought ONE pc (aka “the” computer) and it was in the Headmaster’s office.

This only worked for about a year (dream was in multiple pieces) until the school decided to buy a few more machines.  Eventually, they decided to build a network (and you know what happened next).

Once a dialup link was put in, and the students (predictably) cracked the inadequate passwords (“secret” and such), my friend had to clean up the mess.  I had the distinct advantage of being an observer and not having to clean it up myself.

Now that I am awake, I have to wonder “just how many times this drama has repeated in real life?”
