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.

Re: PC or Mac?

I'm using Windows XP on a Mac through Boot Camp. I still prefer OS X though, it's faster, more stable and requires less maintenance.

Re: PC or Mac?

I swear to god, I was just about to make a topic exactly like this. The options would've been "PC, because I like program support", and "Mac, because I'm gay".

Re: PC or Mac?

I love it when people say Macs are better than PCs because they have no viruses. The reason there are no viruses is because nobody would make one just to infect 9 or 10 people. That's also the reason there's barely any program support for them; people wouldn't waste time porting programs from PCs to Macs just so 9 or 10 people can use them.

9 or 10?
Well, all that growing market share is for nothing, amirite?

Also, I do realize Macs aren't as secure as they're advertised to be. Some times they're just as fxed up as a PC running Windows.

Re: PC or Mac?

I prefer mac's because they are like x9000000000 easier to use, doesn't get viruses (there is a mac virus out there but its rare) and I don't like crashing every 10 seconds or having to click allow to do anything.
So basically I use PC to play games or hack shit since mac sucks balls in those departments and a mac for everything else.

I do know what you mean with the snotty liberal who thinks he is better than everyone else because he has a mac though. my uncle is a shining example of this. he has all the new mac stuff, snow leopard, mac TV, iPhone, macbook pro, macbook air, an extremely powerful mac desktop, the latest airport, an ipod touch. it's ridiculous. though all of it is really awesome when its all networked together like he has it. the only draw back is listening to him drone on about how much better mac is compared to PC he always watches these gay little videos attacking PC in some retarded way. it's just so disgusting... It makes me want to throw my mac out the window.

Not much really but most mac users tend to lean towards the left wing side.

Re: PC or Mac?

Because Macs are like $800 more than PCs. All you're paying for is "reliability", which is bullshit in itself. Just get McAfee for your PC and you'll be fine.

Re: PC or Mac?

One thing I've noticed about people is that as soon as they get a Mac, they turn into ignorant assholes who act like they are superior to everyone who doesn't have a Mac.

Re: PC or Mac?

Mac fanboys are idiots anyway. One thing they allways talk about is how a mac is easier to use because you don't have to "assemble" it. What the fuck. No. It's not like you buy a computer and get a pile of boards or something. All you have to do is computer screen to a computer box... is that realy too difficult for you guys?

Lolwut? Assemble it? When I got my new HP I pulled that motherfucker out of the box plugged it in and turned it on. I didn't have to do jack shit. All of the easy setup shit pissed me off though "the this is how you make an account" "blah blah blah" shut the fuck up I know how the damn computer works. I'm not some stone age dumbass mac fanboy.

garageband is kickass. another thing that is artsy about the mac.

life is just blah blah blah. we hope for blah, and sometimes we find it. but mostly its blah. and waiting for blah. and hoping you were right about the blahs you made. and when you think you just got the whole blah damn thing figured out, and your surrounded by the ones you blah. death shows up and blah blah blah.
