  Web filtering

You may have noticed over the last week or so that some web sites won't load in your browser, instead giving you the pop-up message "Cannot load websense.____.com" or something to that effect. This is part of (THE COMPANY)'s effort to filter out web sites we naughty boys and girls shouldn't be visiting -- porn, gambling, illegal downloads, copyright infringing (let's not even begin discussing the hypocrisy of that), etc., etc.

I don't know about you guys, but I've found that the only sites it's blocked on me so far have been ones that I need to get to for legitimate research purposes. It's hardly crippling, but I find it darn annoying. Therefore, I have a request. Any time you get that "websense" pop-up message while trying to access a legitimate research site, please send me an email with the URL of the site, and we'll try to add it to the list of places we SHOULD have access to. I'll maintain the list and send it up the chain so that we can hopefully get them to allow access to more legitimate sites. Thanks.
