Firewalls

Most of you PSer's at least the Shop Talk and Lounge people are accessing PS at work.... I wanted to know if you know of any sites that you are not firewalled from, of course we are all not firewalled from phonescoop. Maybe we have other similar websites we are not firewalled from.... Just an idea.... Here is a list of some we can access here.

wikipedia.org (all version including wikibooks, wikitionary, etc)

foxnews.com

foxsports.com

howstuffworks.com

digitaltrends.com

discovery.com

wthitv.com

weather.com

etonline.com

I will add more as soon as I figure out what we can and cannot access... add more if you can think of any.

Some of these I don't know why we can access here, but we can.

hasbro.com

mattel.com

ask.com (search works, but can't bring up a webpage using search)

One of my coworkers helped me with these:

pollypocket.com

barbie.com

monsterhigh.com

hotwheels.com

Yup. I will add more if I can think of any or if I find any... I would appriciate if anyone can add anymore onto the list to help.... I think I may have cracked the code on mine....

Based on the results they are just using a content filter, and then blocking some specific sites.... This is why sites like Hasbro, Barie and Mattel show up, but others do not.... Those particualar sites are not getting blocked by the content filter... so any sites that will be added to the list are probably either phone related or are "Family Friendly" while sites such as Facebook, google, etc are being blocked by the site itself.

Thus different variation of facebook, google. etc, may not be blocked.... I will test this theory tonight...

like facebook without grammar nazi's, actual friends, or fear of std's, intended for easy access from dumb phones, but can be accessed from a computer. Just got a big corporate red nasty gram. Was nice knowing ya! Wink

Apparently we do have a pretty light firewall as compared to others. I'm still working to find more... I guess this list is more or less for my other Co-workers for when we have down time.

I was able to get into circuitcity.com here, but I was written up and got a final warning. I really don't understand, and I don't think I ever will.
