    I agree that this is cool.

    Ages ago, I used to work in IT and there are redundancies to monitoring. Not because you managed to circumvent a blocked site...does it mean you can go there. I AM NOT SAYING I SUPPORT THAT but it is what it is and you can get fired (depending on your companies policy).

    My question to anyone who plan on using using this "feature"...IS IT WORTH IT? If you answered YES, then surf away.

    My advise, just like with guns, stay safe!

    As long as the blocking is based on 'site name' instead of IP #s, and there is no checking of web thumbs under browsing history, this should work for most.

    Very nicely done.

    I gotta agree with buck here! What he said makes good sense guys.

    Besides, if you are at work and you ARE on your employers time (not your own) then you should be WORKING and not surfing anyway. Just my up-bringing. No offense.:)

    So, while you are at work, you do nothing but work? Only use the restroom on scheduled breaks or lunch? You never have a conversation during work hours that does not pertain to work? If so, then you must be a robot. I'm all for making my employer as profitable as possible, but I am human just like most non-robots. I'm fairly certain that if anyone's employer is unhappy with their performance, it is brought to their attention. Not everyone works for the same company, and many people can multitask without much effort. Just sayin.

    It is not like those gubmit workers who have been busted viewing porn during work hours over the years. This is a social outlet where people can unwind, relax and talk about one of their favorite subjects.

    LOL, I just was thinking, isn't a porn site an "outlet where people can unwind, relax" with "one of their favorite subjects"?:D

    LMFAO! Yeah, you are correct. I guess I should have clairified more about those who get paid by our tax dollars and have been busted spending more time looking at hey-nanner-nanners than doing what they are paid to do.

    I know how to bypass my company's firewall, but I still think that this is brilliant!

    I try to register, but it won't let me, top of page shows "The string you entered for the image verification did not match what was displayed." Registration page does not ask for image verification:confused::confused:
    Anybody else have the same problem? Or I did miss something????
    Don't know.

    Notdku,

    Never mind. Didn't fully read the PM. Guess I was not awake yet. Only thing that popped out was GOVERNMENT.

    Haha, very tricky, FTF. Just what's perfect. Now I have (another) way to bypass my school's security systems... Well, they aren't that great in the first place but this method isn't illegal!

    Recently here in Victoria Australia there were several Police officers who were given the option to resign or be dismissed as they had sent around, "Inappropriate" emails (these were of a derogatory nature regarding victims and criminals), some of these were on "private" email accounts but using VicPol laptops or systems, there has also recently been a group of employees of the ANZ Bank sacked, arrested and charged as they were using the banks email system for arranging drug transactions.

    Everything you look at on a system linked computer, whether intranet or internet, can be seen by your administrators, all they need to do is choose you for a random audit or as a target of interest.

    If you think that employers are not that hard to fool you're wrong. if you opened the email informing you of this method of getting here covertly at work, then your employer has all the same info as you, it's just they haven't had a reason to look at it.... yet.

    Yeah, I read about that with the bank employees, you can't legislate against stupid huh :rolleyes:

    As far as the whole 'covert' thing goes, I guess a lot depends on just how vigilant your employer is going to be. We are about to have a net filter foisted on us (unless the Govt crashes in a burning heap electorally, which looks ever more likely) and a 13-yr old manged to circumvent the trial pretty efficiently...but I can imagine private business being more switched on than this excuse for a Govt we have atm.

    [Hey Dave, why don't you drop in at the Introductions sub-forum & let us know a bit about yourself? Not nearly enough aussies here, imo :D]

    VERY clever! Very cool. Up to users to know their employers policy... and of course do their relaxing on break time. As with everything... USE AT your OWN risk.

    Clever though!

    Nice Job

    That's a good point. It's unfortunate that this kind of blocking happens. It also drives me nuts on the restrictions against us as FFL's in being to advertise on Google and the like as well as difficulties getting online credit card merchant authorization for the sale of firearms and related items.

    The list just keeps growing out there. Amazing to me that we are singled out yet it's one of our enumerated rights.

    Sigh

    Good job providing a means to do this.
