    No no no... I'm not talking about tpf admins.... I mean your workplace admins who constantly block websites.

    Well I was just surfing around wherever the waves of nettiness took me and I found this: http://www.hiptechblog.com/2005/12/25/use-google-as-a-free-proxy
    I haven't tried it but thought you lucky people with the net at work might appreciate it.

    I'll have to let your admin know about this.

    We have a Firebox firewall. They have a web blocker installed and I do not have to do anything...:wink:

    I once had to bust a guy for surfing gay porn during work hours (not even just on his lunch break). Packet sniffers work no matter what you use.

    I hated doing it since he was a nice guy otherwise.

    same thing happens at school, except they are less discreet and lock your mouse and keyboard movements. they even banned TPF temperally until i persuaded them that it was educational...

    When a user hits a blocked site the system sends us admins an email. Plus it is in the firewall reports.

    Steve :wink:

    Us admins just smile... We have not gotten anyone in trouble.
