    Ugh! ...work web security

    My office is clamping down on what we can look at and our warning screen that pops up. Here is the bigbrother warning that pops up on my screen...

    I don't get that warning. I just get a Websense image with a description of the site and the category the site is in.

    Web pages come in three categories, open, quota, and closed. I have one hour of quota time a day, which means "hobbies", "sports", and "shopping". I can look ate open sites (like Cyburbia and Hotmail) all day long, although the number of minutes I'm on-line is tracked.

    Someday, I'm going to print the lyrics to Deutschland uber Alles and hang them on my monitor.

    I had websense at my old job.

    BTW: I am shocked that there are people who still use internet explorer.

    *Cough*

    I haven't tried this myself (haven't needed to thankfully) but it might be worth a shot. Good luck.

    Indeed... heck even in my uni comp labs where the only thing installed is IE (apparently Firefox is made by the devil), I run FirefoxPortable from my USB pendrive.
    It's also quite cool to go around with your bookmarks along with you, and of course, the very useful firefox extensions...

    a little OT but, actually I am surprised how many municipalities have absolutely no internet policies at all. No wonder a local city manager in ionia was able to get away with downloading child pron at work for years. And another communities fire dept was found to have thousands of sexually explicit photos on the shared computer in the fire hall. Their excuse was that it could have been any one the street accessing and downloading pron on the FD computer. The FD got all righteous and indignant with the female supervisor who discovered it and they had the gall to suggest she should be recalled.
