    For all the Merril fans: often filtering software cannot block the RSS feed. So subscribe using your favorite reader and enjoy LoS at leisure.

    random-web-blocker tip – most places that use “websense” don’t properly set it up, so that “https” (http-secure) goes unblocked. A lot of sites that have any kind of login page will accept ‘https’ connections, like gmail or kodak’s easyshare or, all you have to do is add an “s” right after the “http” to your favorite blocked website and voila, you can browse all day.

    example: blocked, not blocked

    You can also try the babelfish workaround, it’s ugly but works for a lot of sites. Just translate a page from any language to english, works just like a proxy.

    What industry do you work in? If that happened at my company, we’d be screwed, since a lot of what we’re looking at isn’t on Bloomberg. got blocked last week though, the head of our department was very upset.
