    At school there are certain websites that are "restricted." Is there a website where you can put in that restricted website link in a link box and it lets you go to that site? Do you know what I mean?

    There are online proxies and such, but they'll probably find out and you'll probably get in trouble. Plus, if it's a decent filter, the proxies will be blocked too. There's no good way to get around it other than just looking at porn at home instead.

    At my school, they block websites like www.espn.com. But if you type in only espn.com, it will work. It works for most sites they blocked too.

    Yep. I knew there was a reason that threads are stickied on the top of the page. And people still dont see them.
    Peabody, there are reasons schools put block certain websites. They offer the service, and have the right to alter it if they so please. Respect that, and the others using the same bandwidth.

    Perhaps you are right, but I'd rather they just not offer it at all if they're going to block specific sites. I can understand blocking or throttling p2p due to insane bandwidth usage. This issue is further complicated by the fact that most schools do not allow students to purchase alternative service that allows them less restrictive usage (like buying from the local providers directly).

    Meh. I would help, but they say not to. I was lucky at my school, I could pick up wireless networks and just use thoose instead of the schools connection :) Yaaay for the little USB wireless gizmos!
