He must be about 15/16. Cos there was the talk of him taking his final exams. I 
am begining to notice a trend in all the schools I support. We seem to have 
about 3 or 4 kids that are good @ things like that. Well these are kids we 
know, and I am thinking of suggesting setting up a special technology group to 
help them chanel thier gift constructively.
I might create a mini lab/ network with a dozen old pcs, and get them to play 
and reaaly focusing and directing  thier intelligent on good. Not sure how the 
principals would take that, but I sure will suggest this to the IT director.

Nice, and also rather ingenious IMO! 

How old kid(s) are we speaking?
