    I don't hate it because my school has no websense.

    If you can't ask for, and get, unfiltered internet at your school/college/educationalwatsit then you're not old enough to have it. Watching Youtube and playing flash games is counter-productive, obviously.

    Get broadband at home, school is for studying and work is for working, not wasting time and bandwidth on the Internet.

    I'm so glad the technicians don't mind me using my own unfiltered proxy hosted at home [​IMG] Especially as I'm allowed to use my Eee PC in lessons!

    I hate websense. Such a bitch when I'm at work and someone needs a password reset for an Excel document, or something happens to a machine that we're testing and we can't download a tool to hack it.

    Websense blocks so many things at work that really keep us from getting work done, but it also prevents Youtube and other video sites which can seriously screw with the network speed. In that sense, I'm glad we have it.

    It sounds like a good idea to me. It is not that you need flash and stuff like youtube for your education anyway. At my university everything is open: IM, all websites, you can choose your own browser etc. [​IMG]

    I recommend you tunnel out. If you have a linux box at home, or better, a server running linux, it's easy to do. It's probably possible on windows, but you'll have to jump through hoops. (The PC you're using can be any OS)

    Please stop being racist towards Americans. It's starting to bother me.

    I am American [​IMG]

    I just don't live there.

    EDIT : You also might wanna look up the word 'racist', and check out 'tribalism', while you're at it [​IMG]

    There is more to being American than just living there at one point. Stop this crap. No one finds it funny, and it makes you seem like a 10 year old french child complaining about big bad America on the internet.
