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?”
