    Don't feel so bad....they did the same where I work, but to an extreme. They have a program ridiculously named "Matrix". It may as well be an AOL parental filter. The Allspark, for example, is blocked due to being a "Message Board". However, the TFW2005 forums are not. Youtube is blocked due to being "Streaming Media". Nice when we try to view streaming video on sites where we want to get professional education credit, as you can imagine!

    ROEmpire, a fansite for the game Ragnarok Online, is blocked due to being a "Gaming site", yet the OFFICIAL SITE for the game isn't! :redface2: 

    Best yet to date though had to be a photohosting site someone on here used once to post pics of a newly released toy being blocked as a Porn site! :banghead:

    What program are they using to block? Some if you leave the www. off it will still work. And if you google, it will go through, some times.

    they blocked myspace in my school system yet some how we can still find ways to get to it.

    They can always put the videos on Photobucket too.

    Yet, you can still post here :p  Time waisting is still assured!

    (Thankfully nothing at work is blocked. I always feel a little guilty being on gaiaonline at work though...)

    I'm sorry if that came off as terribly snarky, but there are plenty of us out there that don't get any significant internet access at work.

    This is the only site I get to look at while at work: www.armstrongmywire.com

    Anything else that isn't work related, we get in trouble.

    Just use a proxy site, or run the page though a translation site, like google or babelfish. Set it to Spanish to English, and it should work.

    Youtube's blocked at my work site too. Ditto most message boards and blog sites. I can still get here though, so I still have an assured way of wasting time. :D  They tried blocking Yahoo.com at one point too, but that lasted about an hour before a VP got ticked off.

    Yeah, it's kinda hard to look at the interweb while you are working on a factory floor.
