Web-filters like WebSense block off the well-known, socializing central, MySpace. This disallows most people who are stuck doing their shift in the office access to the popular website. We recommend that you notify the billpayer that you will be using their resources for personal pleasures, at the same time as completing the allocated work (otherwise there could be serious consequences – you could even lose your job).
- Internet access
- Firstly, you will need to find what is called a “proxy.” A proxy allows you to browse Websites anonymously (in technical terms: it is a script that is able to hide your IP address by using the server’s that it is running on). Using a web-based proxy is the simplest way to gain your freedom (and to access MySpace), without access to the backend of your company’s web-filter. The best way to find a new proxy that would not have already been blocked by the filter, as had MySpace, would be to visit a “proxy top-site” – @Proxy is not a bad example. On the sidebar, select “New Proxies” and if you can access the first one at your workplace, you’re away laughing. Proceed to the next step.
- Find a form on the page (which will be located on the left-hand side of a button printing the text, “Browse!”). Enter “http://www.myspace.com” into the form (excluding the quotes).
- Press “Enter” on your keyboard, or click the button located next to the form. Login to MySpace and get surfing!
