    So Speedguide is blocked from work.

    I love how the Novell Border Manager splash comes up with the heading "Enhancing your Internet experience" whenever I try to access a blocked site like the SG forums.

    Shouldn't it be "Impeding your Internet experience."?

    Talk to your sys admin....

    Explain it's an invaluable source of technical expertise, windows expertise, good advice on everyday things and not a time waster at all.........

    Maybe he/she will buy it.

    Oh, yeah. Good idea.

    Seriously though, somedays I just sit there and collect my $105 dollars for the day and do jack nothing because my superior doesn't assign me any work.

    Friday was the only day this week like that. I basically added some gray background to some table rows and built a simple HTML file consisting of nothing but text. I was there for 8 hours but only had some actual work to do for 1 hour.

    Luckily Monday thru Thursday was ok and I still can get to Ars and Rage3D for some pass-the-time-posting, but I want Speedguide too darnit.

    My bosses (well, till Nov. 20th anyway ) fully appreciate my during-work visits to SG.

    I work at the United Auto Workers' HQ (Solidarity House).

    I am an intern for the org's public relations division. I pretty much strictly worth with HTML and Photoshop at the moment (and I have copy edited some research docs too, so far). I'm kinda hoping to get some writing gigs for the site and write for the org's in-house PR publication "Solidarity" later on.

    kind of a cheap-and-dirty way of getting around that........ pick up an analog modem and dial-up to whatever sites are blocked. will probably be excruciatingly slow by comparison, but anything to cut through the boredom, eh?

    Someone said that using a translator(french or something) can occasionally beat those blockers. Proxy has been known to work as well.

    Are you running WinXP at home?

    If so, install remote desktop on your pc and work, connect to your pc at home, and browse the web through your pc. Your very own proxy server

    I connect to my server at home from work and download stuff from WinMX all the time, through ISA server at that. There's a little lag this way, but nothing like going through a dial-up modem.

    SG was blocked at my end about 2 months ago, very disappointed until I installed a modem and started using my friends Prodigy account.

    Works like a charm!

    My Chief suggested I ask the admin to lift the block...lol I thought, NO WAY IN HELL!!!...I like my job too much!!!

    besides, I don't have all that much time at work to browse SG these days.
