    That's downright un-American. Fun is over.........................

    Only management has access to the web where I work. I am not in management but I could be, I'm certainly good looking enough...!!!

    I suppose you could try a proxy website.

    I have a bet with my supervisor and a fellow student: we'll not use internet or our phones for a week at the university. I told my supervisor I'd bring a book, he was not amused. Also, he's addicted to his webmail, so I'm not sure who's going to be more aggravated

    Why not use a tablet. No breach of the bet there

    For two reasons: I am disgusted by the tablet hype and because I'm still not allowed to use the internet on it. I can use my laptop, just no internet.

    At my work the parent company has sort of a comical way of blocking sites. The Big Brother way is to show you a blank screen with one dialogue box with all the blah blah blah as to why you can't go where you think you should. The comical part is that on other sites you will actually see a fragment of the 'I see you' box somewhere on the page. I'm about as far away from IT as you can get. Metaphorically, I'm making arrowheads from obsidian, but they haven't touched SRP. Full disclosure: I never surf when there is work to do....dead time only. So I am grateful to SRP for many entertaining and informative moments in the 8:30 to 5:30 slot.
