    I work in a school and I was locked out of TB at work because it was on the firewall as a general entertainment site. I put in a request to have it unblocked stating music teachers use it for teaching material on bass and they actually unblocked it. Im happy I have something to entertain me while waiting on microsoft windows updates LOL.

    that is all

    Exactly! I feel your pain. My company recently installed Barracuda. I was ready for them though with my Verizon Mi-fi. :D

    I'm happily playing Blitz while sitting and waiting for a 100-some odd page brief to OCR.
     
  10. Ha! Read a lot of threads over on gearslutz.com about having issues at work. . . :D

    I took my dog to a vet once that I feel TOTALLY over charged me. he was known from that day forward as "the rapist" and I referred to him in an e-mail to my friend (my ex who I got the dog with) and it triggered a red flag in her firewall - caused a BIG stink, had to explain to her boss why she had an e-mail w/ the word "rapist" in it. methinks I'm glad I'm not in corporate america LD

    My school doesn't block TB. It does block Gearslutz and Guitarfetish though. That was annoying when I was trying to help a friend who was working on building a guitar.

    I almost quit my job earlier today because I couldnt access TB! All the sites I usually check were blocked at work. It was fixed a few minutes later though, before I stormed the IT office.

    Er, uh, do you believe it's really prudent to storm the IT department? Um, we have ways of making a user's life a living hell. :eyebrow:

    If I were quitting it wouldnt have mattered. I would have done the inverse and opened up my computer to every virus on the internet (if I could get a damn connection!)

    Mr. Mania, are you one of those troublemaker types?

    Like the guy who tried to copy his ENTIRE inbox to a network drive and crashed the server so about 100 people were idled.

    Are you one of thoooosssseeee types of users? ;)

    Or, are you like the guy who set up his 'out of office' message and did something weird and the thing went in a loop until the mail server crashed.

    Not that I would suggest you do either of these things in lieu of setting off a virus, but at least the trouble would be contained within the company . You wouldn't want some innocent civilian to get caught in the crossfire from an infected email or file . . . would you? :cool: *insert more maniacal laughter*

    Haha, are you giving me suggestions? Sweet!

    Actually Im not a troublemaker type, I was just furious that I had my craigslist and TB taken away from me (after I just paid my dues, too!) for what I thought was forever. Turns out we just had some weird server problems.

    The IT dept. here is pretty cool, with the exception of one stickler, who is the one who would have blocked me as well as the one my wrath would have been extolled upon. I also rarely need their help, as Im capable of fixing most of my own computer problems.

    I will keep your suggestions in mind for the day I quit, which shouldnt be too far off now.
