Title: Whoops - Got the site blocked at work!!!!
Post by: mikeypedersen on August 18, 2010, 10:00:50 PM
Whoops.  I guess I'm on here too much.  I work for a school district so they have the tendancy to block stuff on the web pertaining to alcohol.  However, they have to be tipped off to a lot of things due to traffic.  Well, I guess I'm on here too much, because I just got back from a 2 week vacation in europe and came home and I can't get onto the site....    >:(  :(  :o

Boo-Hoo.  I'll miss you guys while I'm working!  :'(

I fear the same for me. There is a pretty fierce firewall here. I have lucked out. Some days though,
I am in a position where I sit at a desk all day. Other days I am running like a headless chicken.

Find the person in charge of the web filter and bring him/her a six pack of homebrew.  ;)

I suppose a proxy server is out of the question?

If the IT folks have even half a brain, the first thing blocked is proxy servers.
