    I finish early in 3d modeling alot so I have time to kill most days, school blocks the temp but it doesn't block "secure"s site's i.e HTTPs. Any chance in setting something up? Never set up a secure site myself before so I don't know the steps, if its hard or not.

    So you want the site to be set up on a secure basis on the premise that you can access it from a specific location, you know thats alot of work for little motivation, why cant you just use it on your cell while your away from home

    I'd think that a proxy would be better. Any https proxies you could you? My school doesn't block the Temp, so I'm not sure.

    If all you want to do is get around the firewall then you could use tor or a proxy. As for https its not really necessary for the site so its not likely to be implemented.

    I forgot
    Download tor and bring it in on a flash drive. Problem solved. Gets around my schools blocked sites, and they block almost everything, you can't even google Playstation.

    Running an HTTPS site that won't throw up cert errors costs money yearly for a proper certificate.

    If you were like my school and im sure most public schools use m86 tech internet filters called the R3000 the best thing i have found that bypasses all intnet filters is ultrasurf they use it in china to get arount the government firewall you can find it and info about it at http://ultrasurf.us/ but you will need to download it from home or somewhere and put it on a flash drive cause most internet filter block ultrareach.us but they cant block the software
