Tim, when I was in the seventh grade, due to getting most of my _real_
education from the library at my own pace, I wasn't counting windows.
There weren't enough of them. I simply kept working out new patterns
for counting the holes in the acoustical ceilings, since the contractors
had installed them unevenly and that killed _some_ of the time until the
bell rang. Otherwise I let the teacher drone while I read something
useful or interesting and answered the questions it asked on automatic
pilot -- since I usually read the textbooks for the semester twice by
the third day of class.

Be warned -- if you go to a decent college that trick doesn't work. At
