Last month, I've found out it was possible to change the number of pages available for the printer users where I study. I've told about it to the administrator, which already knew about it, and since there were many other things to worry about, they simply ignored it. They were promising to migrate to CUPS and Pykota since november. (They've told me this then, because I couldn't print using Linux systems, only Solaris, which I did not accept.) Last Wednesday, I've decided to write a hack that would allow people to transfer pages, without this security problem. The administrators suspended my account, and claimed it was not a right, but a privilege. Now, my hack is quite ready (except for some authentication decisions), but it's kinda useless, unless for my learning. I'm going to claim my rights in some higher degree, instead of discussing with the administrators using e-mail (with copies to every class list).
