Just use a proxy server... like : there is all kinds of them and they are a pain to try and block. I am a network admin at a HS. and I cant block most of them. The kids use them to get to sites I have blocked like My Space.

it seems more and more places are cracking down on teh interwebz surfing :(

our work sent out a Memo asking people to reduce the amount of time they "surf" the web due to bandwidth limitations.... apparently we've been going overboard here....

must be all the porn.

Doesn't that just send a red flag to big brother, that you are surfing the net or visiting banned web site? - Dirk

It could if they are spending all day checking the firewall logs, if they have them enabled that is. I know I have better things to do then that.

I work at a university... so we have to have full access to the internet for "research" capabilities :)

Trust me they already have all the proxy sites blocked. Bluecoat is extremely effective at filtering 99.99999% of everything

HBT is one of the few beer related sites that's not blocked at work. If they end up doing that, I will be so insanely bored you have no idea. Hmmm.... I wonder if one of the admins is a member here....
