I come back from the holiday's only to find our technology team has installed something that blocks me from getting to MTBR.Com on my work computer :madmax: :madmax: (yes, I am double pissed).

that's great because now I don't know what they expect me to do with my time:madman:

This atrocity is certainly going to show up in the next Associate Satisfaction survey.

I know what you mean, because last week it worked until Wednesday, and then it started getting blocked. So when the site gets blocked there is a little report on how you can check why it got blocked. I copied MTBR.com into 3 different web filters and all three reported malicious code. But today I checked and it was not showing up as malicious, although still blocked. My guess is that there was some strange code that triggered the filters, but was then deleted from the site. Unfortunately to get it unblocked you need to have a valid business reason. So I think we are screwed :(

Get a BlackBerry! I rarely use a computer to look at MTBR mostly my phone. It probably shows in my spelling and punctuation because the little screen breaks your sentences up weird.
Yeah but MTBR doesn't have a BB friendly mobile version, does it? On my BB it's all hosed up.

If you have a blackberry, use it as a modem (attach it to your computer via the cord and search for the setup walk-through on google). It becomes your internet connection and you should be able to bypass whatever system IT installed.

Unnecessary restrictions force us to employ ingenuity and technological solutions to get to appropriate ends. Or something like that.

Its not very friendly but it works. It allows me to hit MTBR all day. I often find myself sitting in my truck on MTBR instead of cleaning pools but I don't get paid by the hour so I guess its all right. As long as my wife doesn't find out why my easy days take so long.
