Not trying to tell you how to circumvent the filters but the kids in the computer labs know every trick in the book. Proxy servers, scripts that disable them, if you really want to get in ask a middle school student. I block my space and they have spent hours working around the filters. If we could harness that energy and get them doing productive work they could get in any college in the country.

dang kids! They are smarter than the people making the proxy! Unfortunately, we have those same people making up the security settings that we are required to use. They don't realize that it is going to stop productivity. Then the big bosses are going to wonder why their "do more with less" mentality isn't working. Not that it worked in the first place, it will just be getting worse.

I could probably figure out a way to get around them, but I kinda need my job.

You blocked myspace from 6th graders???? Are you trying to kill them???
What's next? Take away their text messaging?

Yes, indeedy. And I'm glad I did! I would like to block all social networking sites. Get this...you are really going to think I'm mean. I block chat!

Seriously, the liability of these kids on those sites scare me to death. We supposed to keep the little darlings safe.

Currently having puerrh tea with honey in the attempt to keep me from sticking a fork down my throat and digging out my larynx. I sound like a guy with a electronic vox-box.

EDIT: Looks like my fishies are gonna get reckoned right after they come out. I'm ranked 24/27, and I need to sell down to 20 to keep it. Man!!!

My kids missed it. It got big when they were in HS.
We all had the same email address for years! I can still check the away message of kids they knew in 5th grade.

But, on vacation, the pre schoolers were on the computer in the lobby all the time.
Webkins. I don;'t know what they were doing. Two of them couldn't even read yet.
That can't be good.

Now, because of Zilla, I have a facebook account. I now know that one niece drinks every weekend. Well, she is in college, but her sister does too, and she is under 18.

They all wised up and don't put any drug stuff on anymore. Some of that is if the college sees a picture and can identify the campus, they come after you.
But they still post stuff.
Like there was a field trip when all the kids who stayed in NYC or home for school drive up to Binghamton (there are 6 of them up in the one school, so it is a good choice to meet up)
They seem to have found a bee hive.
They got a stick. A very long stick...then they poked the hive and watched the bees get mad.
Luckly they stopped before the hive fell or the bees found them.
Stupid boys!
Getting stung by one bee is not the same as getting stung by the whole hive!
But, school smarts doesn't seem to translate into real world smart.
Especially when you film it and put it online for your mom to see!

Someone messed that up. The simplified is exactly the same. Unless it was just a big ploy to keep the kids in Chinese school on the weekend.

Nooooo, complain! I want to see my fish. I might order another after I see him.
That isn't right. They should have a few days after smart post delivers.
I'm going to see if he even left yet.

You did sell 1,500 the first night. That is a ton of shirts!

edit....no, I don't have a tracking # yet and it is at least a week after getting the number till you get the shirt.

I don't have my tracking # yet either, but I just checked the FedEx site using my order number and it looks like I might not get my shirt today. There is a delivery exception - not sure if they are going to reattempt delivery or not. I wanted my fish - even if it isn't going to fit!

I next-day'ed my three, so the second I get my shirts, I'll take a picture of them and post them HERE.

EDIT: It was promised on Tuesday, it is now tuesday. I haven't gotten an Fed Ex number yet, but I assumed it would get here TODAY...

You should give your students bonus points for wearing your shirt to class. You'll also be able to easily see the "brown nosers" by advertising this plan as well.

If I order a few more later this week (if my shirt is scheduled to be reckoned I'll stock up), I can order an XL for a swap with you...

Yeah, I'm on a circumventor mailing list so everytime they set up a new website, I sent it to our Internet person to block.

Hmmmm. Will give this some thought, thank you. Depending on it's size, I might see how big this one will e on the girl kid and then get a new one for me.

You'll get your tracking order a few hours after it is delivered to your door. That's the way it always works for me.

I have similar stuff at home (Guiafenesin, and real strong). It's a dry cough, so nothing comes out even with the stuff. Wish there was something there... dry hacks are not fun, and hurt!
