We could probably help block your work access on our end. Let us know.

SunMonkey,

Don't bother showing up for work on Monday. You're fired.

It's always interesting when a site gets unblocked...

So do you think that it got unblocked because there were so many complaints, or do you think that they are setting a trap for you?

We have had a very liberal IT Director who doesn't block sites. He has turned in his notice and I'm a little concerned about what will happen with someone new coming in.

typically has to do more with a software upgrade, firewall change, etc..
there are a milllion reasons why dvdtalk could have been unblocked
and its a million to one that they specifically meant to unblock this site

Symantec is (was?) handling my school's firewall, and up until yesterday (or whenever DVDTalk was unblocked), it was cited for Adult Content.

I found out because I use my laptop at home, too. I missed clicking a bookmark to hit DVDTalk. I will just have to restrain myself now.
