Well, can't say they didn't learn a valuable skill - and learned it pretty well I'd say.

-Builds a well hidden PC
-Doesn't attempt to mask network traffic

Amateur hour. But then again, perhaps this is why they're in prison to begin with?

Gotta star somewhere lol. Now they know why they got caught, perhaps next time they will find a way to mask their network traffic.

It's nice to be able to build a computer outside of prison and not have to hide it, though.2cents.gif

 The computers contained applications for credit cards using another inmate's information, pornography, research on tax refund fraud, recipes for homemade drugs and message exchanges.

 

Not part of their rehab I guess.

The computers were found hidden in the ceiling of the prison in Marion County in 2015, prompting an investigation by Ohio's Inspector General.

wait what? so this is such important news that they reported it two years later?

Sounds like Simon Phoenix. Guess they didn't get the Knitting rehab program.

But... is it? They'd been doing this for how long... and still didn't get caught? Two years?

I get that's an issue that deems punishment to be necessary... but more so on the supervision than the inmates in my book. The fact that they could do this and get away with it for so long shows negligence on the people supposedly on constant overwatch. mad.gif

LOL I love that movie!  Only have it on a old VCR tape though, but I do still have one TV that can play it.
