How do I get Notepad up?

Okay. So apparently, my school has figured out how to keep you from deleting the source from web pages so you can use the empty source thing as notepad. Does anyone know any other way to get notepad up? The regular notepad program is blocked too.

Yeah, thats pretty much it. Some kids figured out how to do this a while ago and got caught. They were morons though and they told everyone about it.

You can save a wordpad document on your desktop called notepad, then, after saving, rename it to notepad.txt. Boom! Notepad. Or, at least that's what Sowders showed me.

Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 (On your computer) and copy notepad.exe onto a flashdrive/floppy, and then just pop it in at school, and open it.

Yeah, but I'm pretty good at not getting caught. And if I do get caught, I'm pretty good at getting out of it.
