comment Sharing files between multiple computers?
That said, you're apparently using wireless connections. Assuming there's an Ethernet port in every classroom predating the wireless network, you may see if someone can requisition a network switch and some Ethernet cables so that everyone can at least be on the wired network. That might not solve all your speed problems, but it would help. So perhaps lobby for hardware.

Looks like you should get together and lobby at broward.k12.fl.us/Ets_Web/index.htm then. Part of the problem appears to be that within that organization, there's some major overlap between the different operational units, who might not be coordinating well with each other. But that's far too political for here.

Also, Dropbox will attempt to use internal local copies over a LAN to distribute rather than pulling all copies from the upload to Dropbox.

I'm going on the assumption that due to pictures being mentioned, opening each one from thumbnails to find which one to work on for whatever purpose is the actual part being perceived to be slow. While all the copies are being distributed for the first time, that can be done while the computers are not even being actively used.

comment Snow Leopard Server hanging during mysterious IO spikes
Indeed. I suppose I'll buy it after my computer gets back. In other news, the "genius" of my appointment earlier today confirmed that they had indeed not actually replaced the drive, but assured me it would be this time.

comment Mac Office PowerPoint save as PDF with hyperlinks
I went back and tested some more. It only carries over if the link itself has the URL in the text.

comment Mac Office PowerPoint save as PDF with hyperlinks
And you're using Office 2011 for Mac? I personally tried this right before recommending by making a hyperlink in a Powerpoint and then doing a Save As... I then opened the saved PDF in Preview and was able to click the link.

comment Skype can’t be uninstalled completely on my PC?
Do you mean to say you got a "Some elements could not be removed." type message after running the uninstaller?

comment Is there any problems caused by having Windows XP installed to a drive letter other than C:?
This was precisely my experience on a Windows 98 machine many years ago, where the OS was running from the D: drive. Lots of programs were just fine and conferred with the registry for proper paths, but others got testy. It was both sad and amusing to see files turn up in an otherwise empty "Windows" folder on the C drive as programs attempted to dump their crap in the Windows directory.
