Top-10-ways-to-access-blocked-stuff-on-the-web from lifehacker.com
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service. @themadscientist: I am living on the flip side of that coin. I work in the technology department of a city, and our IT security staff is both lazy and stupid. They set up smart filter and won't unblock anything ever, even if you need it to do your job. What is filtered is arbitrary, and their main goal is to do no work. Facebook? icanhascheezburger? Google apps? YouTube? Vimeo? Evernote? Dropbox? Access to my personal web server via ftp? It's arbitrary and retarded. Try setting up a youtube channel for one of your agencies when youtube is blocked, or all of a sudden having Evernote blocked, when you've been using it for your task management for months. The part that makes it so annoying is all the stuff they're NOT doing. So if I can find workarounds for their stupidity that make it easier for me to do my job, I'm all over it.
