Forum is blocked at work!

Mon Aug 27, 2012 7:35 pm

Code, help me please. A year ago the company I work for blocked me from the BN forum with their web filter. You suggested I try Terrencetheblack to get in and bingo, I was back. Now they have blocked that too and I can't find any link that will bring me here when I'm at work. Is there another back door entry :shock: to the site or another work around of some kind? I'm gonna go insane without the BN forum to get me through my work day.

You might try a proxy server, like https://freepublicproxy.org/.

You could always get a 3G/4G device and use that.

Maybe the other way in doesntvwork anymore is cuz they saw you were spending 90% of your time at that address :-). Maybe they are trying not to fire you lol. I bet if you found another way they would eventually block that as well it is pretty easy to keep track of workers activities on the web if they want

I'm self employed, and I usually work from home, that makes me my own IT guy

...unfortunately, I'm shitty at doling out benefits :( I have a crappy healthcare plan, and currently no retirement.

but I can hit up youjizz.com at 10am if I want :mrgreen:
