It turns out his class is still using my graphics editor ("picedit") for creating sprites, and my library to use them from their programs. (Their final project is to make a game) Makes me proud. :-)
In all this time they're still using the same computers. I guess Microsoft had the school district install some "NetOctopus" program on all the machines so they could monitor their usage. That disturbed him. He wants to put Linux on there (for a free development environment, too!) but doesn't know how. I volunteered to convert the lab to Linux and he got pretty excited.
