    By that i mean, if certain websites are blocked at work, is there a website that allows me to see other websites, like a browser within a website?

    Thanks

    Sadly if you try to do that you could be sacked.

    I was just thinking of this recently, maybe you could use that babblefish site to "translate" your site. I believe it still keeps it open through the babblefish site.

    http://www.the-cloak.com/ (some workplaces have caught on to this, though)

    Also, doing google searches for what you want and clicking the "Cached" link will often let you read whatever you wanted to read, sans pictures.

    Google around for an "anonymizer".

    If your admins are up to snuff don't even bother.

    They can track it all - just cache all the http requests - and you've got everybody's surfing habits. Force them to use a password to go through a proxy and you know who's surfing what. Everybody is expected to 'try' to get where they cannot, but don't make a habit of it. Test your limits occasionally, or befriend an admin that can let you bypass the security.

    Hehe, if his admins were like the people at my old High School, he could use any anonymizer out there and bypass em without knowing cause the people are too stupid.

    I would suggest just using a proxy, though I also suggest strongly that you don't do it. :p Unless your chummy with at least the admins it's a silly way to lose you job.

    However you call them (people who want to tell others what they can and can't do on computer technology). I just call them admins because to me, that is what an admin is around the net (not saying all admins are bad, just a majority). And I don't mean just internet admins, I mean administration in corperate worlds as well.

    A forum admin and a admin you might find at work are much different. ;)

    the hardest job of an admin is keeping something secure and running quickly without impacting the usability of the system, some uses of a system are often restricted or denied for the benefit of the user population as a whole.

    Indeed. You could be putting the whole network at risk. Admin have created rules not to be mean (as most think), but to keep "bill" from surfing whatever because "it's not his computer". What happens if "bill" should happen upon a trojan, or some malicious coded page? Also some employers see what could possibly be a decline in work time if your say surfing forums, pr0n, ect. instead of doing your work. ;)

    Oh and the biggest deterant, if for chance you care not about others. YOU CAN LOSE YOUR JOB!
