    So I went to the metro center today and pulled my iPod touch out to see if they had Internet.they did so I hooked up and tried to go to gbatemp and guess what?they blocked it.their web security blocked that along with most websites that you can get roms from.I did find a way to download games on it even with there system to block it.to bad I had to leave when j found a way to bypass it. Why would gbatemp be under blocked?

    Is it really blocked or was it just down?

    Yes, our poor, poor 'Temp was down for a while today. The fabled Pokenvasion, as well as some sort of quirk with the inner workings, was just too much for it. :/

    A lot of places block this site. My college also does...it says "Banned for Games".

    Yeah it's a blocked site because it's both a forum (social networking) and a game site (gaming). I can't get here at school either.
    So I just watch YouTube.
    YouTube is blocked, obviously...
    but il.youtube.com isn't.
    yay jewtube
