    Each employee gets 180 minutes a day in quota time to use the allowed sites. Lucky me, I'm a supervisor so I have several log-ins and never run out. Even luckier, BDW doesn't count toward quota time for some reason so I'm good :o)

    we have websense as well, and we have found out you can go to kproxy.com, as well as many other proxy sites and get around it.

      Well I guess I'm not that bad off. We had restricted sites like youtube or myspace, but today was the first day I started to notice a MAJOR blocking of different sites. Even some of my buddies called to tell me they got blocked from Steve Madden.

      But now I just tried maggie sottero again and I can go there. Very weird.

        Oh boy! I'm debating on telling my staff that because they always run out of quota time....it may have to be a "you didn't hear this from me but..." thing because I'm sure IT would not be pleased if I spread that around!

              Our IT dept just blocked facebook and myspace type sites etc. Grrr. I mean I get why they did it, but on my lunch hour I should be able to go into facebook and play scrabble if I want to! I would die if they blocked this site.. since I'm the only one at work on it, it would be pretty obvious if they were monitoring my usage.. yikes
