I have a semi-interesting story to tell:
So a few weeks ago back in mid-April during programming class, I had just finished my assignment and I had about a half an hour left in class. I decided to go romping around through the registry files for the remainder of class time. So I do, I figure out how to turn off the proxy without deleting everything, which is quite difficult without admin privileges, I unblock firefox, opera, and a few other programs and in turn I block internet explorer and a few other semi-critical programs. After that, nothing I found was all that interesting, so I just started deleting random stuff and changing everything. Then class ended and I left, and didn't think anything of it.
So a couple days later during my literature class, my teacher was lecturing us on the book we were reading. After about 20 minutes, a security guard pops his head into the classroom and is like "Mr. Teacher, can I speak to you for a moment?", the teacher turns and says "Can it wait?", then "No, it needs to be now,". So the teacher steps out into the hallway for a few moments, and then steps back in with a manila folder. He opens it and begins reading. I don't remember exactly what he said, so I'll paraphrase: "Okay, so a few days ago, our technology department informed the staff that some severe damage has occurred to one of our computers. Some important things on a computer were maliciously deleted, causing an operating system failure and sever hardware damage. And most unfortunately, due to the network that our computers are built on, the deleted files also affected the entire computer lab. Needless to say, the damages total in several thousand dollars. We happen to have a few suspects, so we'll call you out into the hallway and ask you a few questions."
It was about then that I started getting worried. I noted the fact that we were reading the Crucible at the time, and sure there were a few discrepancies in what he said, but you can't really get in a situation like this without getting totally worried unless the story is completely ridiculous. Anyway, as I expected, I was the second person to be called out into the hallway. There was my teacher and the security guard out there questioning me. I think I remember all of the questions asked to me:
"Have you ever hacked anything or hacked into anything in your life?"
-"I guess not." (technically not a lie)
"Have you ever gone on to any banned sites while at school?"
-"I went on youtube before it was banned" (I didn't really answer the question, at least not wholly)
"Have you ever checked your email at school?"
-"Yes, but I'm allowed to for programming so I can do homework at home." (the truth)
"If you cooperate with us, you will only be expelled for a single year. Do you want to tell me who you've been working with?"
-"Everyone. You'd need to search quite a long time to find someone who has never visited a banned site or checked their email at school" (pretty much the truth)
"We know that you forged your parents signature on the technology liability form. We had experts come in and examine the handwriting on the form and you parents handwriting. Are you aware that your parents are still liable for damages that you cause?"
-I just laughed. Anyone who has seen my parents handwriting and my writing knows that I couldn't forge it.
Then the teacher told me to go down the hallway, turn the corner and wait for someone to come get you. So I did, and I was just as worried as I was before. When I turned the corner, another person who was questioned was waiting there as well. So we just stood there and waited. then a third person came around the corner, and finally the teacher and security guard came with him. The the teacher pointed to the first person and said "Okay, you can go back to class and sit. You two (pointing to me and the third guy), go back and get your stuff and come back here."
By then, I was really worried. Really worried. I got my stuff and walked back, but he said it was all a joke and it was an exercise to imitate the setting of the crucible, and he went into another lecture about the situation. My vague hope was correct, but I figured that I wouldn't have been scared at all if I hadn't played with the files on those computers.
