I just used those today on a computer at school.  It took 10minutes to load it. I had to use jwirc, only one that worked. MAC must suck at Java.

That's why you use proxy sites.

Almost everything on my school is blocked, or used to be. >> Someone in my Integrated Software class crashed the filter they use, so now all websites are accessible. (Been like this for a month now. The computer teacher is stupid and hasn't got it working again.)

My school blocked everything years (half a year, actually) ago.

You're lucky you made it this far.

About 99% of the internet has been blocked at my school due to a fear of everything. We can access Wikipedia, the BBC site, Google, oodles of career/university/college sites and other boring parts of the interwebs that contains nothing of interest unless you have to do a project on it. I could access Digg until a few weeks ago when it was blocked by the pornography filter.

I got banned from the swimming pool yesterday. My speedos were a bit worn so they threw me out. The ’s’ had fallen off.

Half the game sites on the Internet are blocked at my school, plus an art site I go to, and any chats they find.
