yeah, Photobucket has been blocked for a while. Half the links posted in Foo seem to be blocked by work, and like you said, trying to do a proxy server isn't worth it. Why risk the trouble?

Youtube - blocked
Any url with the word "game" in it anywhere
Most video or fun website links (like the anagram thread link)
You name it, they block it.

And here I figured you were going to say you realized who you were, or that your inflatable girl friend had sprung a leak.

Sounds like you work in the company I work for, I block pretty much everything that is automatically not work related.

Yeah those suckers at websense... I hate them.

They even blocked the real estate / apt & house renting sites. So I'm supposed to do my home hunting on my own time now? Gee!
