    College Humor

    Funny site! A lot of it is not work friendly... websense doesn't like it.

    www.collegehumor.com

    Another good one... www.skoopy.com
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Not according to websense... "tasteless"... lol

    I hate the ****ing software. I don't swear often... but that **** gets on my nerves!
    Thankfully I've got a vpn setup at home so I can surf unsensored at work and nobody can see what I'm seeing.

    I was recently added to a new group that blocks me from "file download server".

    Now... as an admin... how the hell am I supposed to do my ****ing job if I can't get to the **** I need.

    I'm complained to mgt about it... they just laugh and I can't get removed.

    Their excuse "You need written permission from the IT department to download files..."

    I AM the IT department!

    Easy enough... I switched IP addresses with my boss.
    Now he is blocked from everything and I can get to whatever I want.

    We'll see how funny it is when he can't do his job...

    LMAO! Thats a nice hack-of-a-solution to the problem. Let's just hope you can still do your job...because you still HAVE a job, once he figures out what happened.

    Are you kidding me! ROFL. We're a two man IT shop. Well... one man. me.
    He doesn't want to do any more work than he has to.

    To download a file, I have to ssh into a remote box use links or wget to download the file, and then ssh it back to the box I need it on. Now it takes me twice the time to download a file... Talk about a loss of productivity. websense is supposed to "increase productivity" because people aren't surfing non work related sites all day.

    Oh, but no worries... I still get 30 minutes of "quota time" to visit sites like wired.com or news.com because they are "entertainment"

    ROFL!

    I think that from now on I'll just sit there and play solitare until he answers my email and downloads the file(s) I need and puts them on a shared drive for me.

    How long do you think that'll last?

    I can see filtering me from porn and adult and etc.

    But to block me from entertainment, file download servers, etc.
    Just crazy!

    ROFL... Our Human Resources department is blocked from "Job Sites"...
    They need the job sites to find new employees! ROFL...

    LMFAO!!! that is great, I love the work arounds
    They think they are being so sneaky until you get a user who knows what they are doing and can still get around it.... I had websense at a job I once worked and I hated it as well....

    What I dont understand is if you are the IT guy then who locked you out of stuff?

    Managers. Phishphreek, I wonder if he's sending you a message...just a thought.

    Actually, the workarounds are pretty difficult UNLESS you have a very technical user (or in phis' case, IT folks). Websense, annoying as it can be, is pretty robust. 'Feature rich' is the sales puke line, I think. I mean, honestly, how many NON-technical types are gonna have their own VPN gateway setup outside the company perimeter? Besides present company, of course...

    BTW, collegehumor.com is great...and is on the long list of tasteless sites.

    None of these are considered safe-for-work by many people. You have been warned.

    Like http://www.consumptionjunction.com/

    and http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/

    and http://www.ilovebacon.com/ (This one is a personal favorite! I love the 'hacked' marquee signs.)

    and many, many more.

    damn!... phishphreek80

    What a sorry place to work. You deserve someplace better to work. With that company mentality, I'd be looking elsewhere.

    Yup... its managers who locked me out. I don't have access to it either.

    It all started when he applied a patch. He's like "Hey... go out to some porn site and see if you can access it. So I did. I could. The next thing was... oh... let me put you in another group. Now try it.

    Yup.. it blocked me... now put it back!

    Never put it back...

    I've been fine for the past 4 years... so why block me now?
    I don't think its a "message". he and I are "pretty close". He'd just tell me if there were some "message".
