RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

PC Modding For The Holidays

Yep,the holidays are upon us,and that means its time for me to get some stuff for my PC..

I got my Dell PC last March for my birthday. The only non-stock part it currently has is a GForce MX 4000, and I've been eyeing window kits for it for a while,as well as LEDs, maybe a digital thermometer and the sorts.

Why I'm gonna love doing this stuff is because its a lotlike modding cars in MC 3. Im hoping for the whole Computers Color scheme to be Orange,Black and Blue.

Discuss
..............
Any Ideas you may have
Any PC Mods You've all got
Any Aftermarket Parts you've got
Etc...

i've seen quite a number of funky case mods in my day....

wooden case built from scratch
cases modeled in all sorts of shapes and sizes (think large statues of game characters)
cases built into briefcases (portable and sort of like large laptops)
cases built into remote controlled cars that still work
various things inbetween, most with lights and some light shows

my case is black with some silver bits, a side window with lots of blue lights and blue fans inside

i want to mod a different case though with orange lights, can't decide on the details, maybe camo, or maybe 'urban junk metal' style... with chromed bones Biggrin

3 options there:

1) buy a pretty one
2) buy a boring one and decorate it
3) buy parts and build one from scratch
