    i go to school today, try to log on to TB as usual, and i find out that the network administrator blocked TB from all the schools computers....its not like we show adult content or drugs or anything like that...

    ....i just don't understand why a good like TB needs to be blocked...:(

  2. It's the system man...designed specifically to indoctrinate you and assimliate you and disassemble you to your lowest common denominator. It's a vast plot against the bottom end community perpetuated by needlessly greedy instrumentalists. My suggestion is to rally around the family with a pocket full of shells.

    Exactly!!

    .....or...you could tell yon bass-hater administrator that this site rocks for the good lord and if it remains blocked he shall be smote by many a bassist.
    that'll learn him.

    i'm gonna start using that..."tritto."
    i mean, "di" is the prefix for two, so "ditto" is what you say second. so, since "tri" is the prefix for three, wouldn't you say "tritto" for the thid time?

    i'm not crazy.
     
  13. Talk bass is cool. We all know this. I know it sooo much that I will be sending in money to become a member soon. Maybe you should tell them that fishing is really about nature, and being one with... oh... wrong talkbass.
     
  14. Or maybe you are...after all you're one of the millions of people living as foes. Still...I hope it's not to learn how to love and for all of us to forget how to hate. But with all these mental wounds that aren't healing, I mean, life's a bitter shame.

    Sometimes I just feel like I'm going off the rails on a crazy train.

    We gotta take the power back, y'all....Ninja Style!!

    Why don't you politely ask him why he blocked it? Maybe if he has a lame reason you could convince him otherwise. Maybe he has some misconception about TB. Maybe he really hates Orlando Wilson and thinks this is a a bass (as in rhymes with "ass") site. Maybe you've been skipping class to read TB too much.

    Hmm...every so often at my school(where I do 95% of my Teebing). I'll try to load a page at Talkbass and it says that the page is blocked and a message appears written by hte system admin(preset message) that tells me what to do if it was blocked incorrectly...i just click on the refresh button a few more times and it loads.
     
  18. In public schools, They do a usual check of the network and see what sites have been visited. If they find a site that is not related to school in anyway that has been visited alot, they will lock it. I know how to evade the school's network blocker majigi, but you probably have a different network than we do at my school.

    That gets my vote. I mean if it was an accident or something then there's no point in getting all angry and making the admin all defensive.
