Work took my cafe away :(

Postby joejlitz » Wed Sep 30, 2009 6:43 am

So I went to log into the cafe at lunch and eat at my desk like I do every day and I got rerouted to a screen that said the cafe was now "content filtered" for "games" and I can't log in at work anymore. This is one of the most depressing things to happen in a while. I tried to tell a coworker about my sadness but he gave me that "fantasy football? you're 36 years old, dude" look and quickly changed the topic.

Today is a horrible day. I don't want to go back. :~(

Maybe I should look for another job. IDK. :,-(

or maybe if you're friendly with one of the IT guys you could get a work around... otherwise, it's iPhone time, or some other phone that can handle browsing.

Sucks, dude.

Sometimes a proxy server works. Give it a try. You might not be able to log in, but you might be able to cruise the cafe.

I can get onto facebook/twitter/blocked sites on my school computers by putting stuff in as https://__________. Dunno if its a similar block, but ya never know if that might work...

No way. The computer nazis are terrible. I have no admin priveleges and without admin priveleges, I can't download any other browsers. Maybe Menyak should organize a protest outside the Pentagon. We'll all meet there and hold up signs and get our pictures taken and we could run away when they shoot the tear gas at us. But in the end, we might get my Cafe back and the web-site would get a ton of publicity! ;-D
