~ website blocking ~

31 July 2003

at the place where i’m currently working, they just implemented a website block system a few days ago. first of all, i used to work in a web company. so, of course, this is the first time for me to experience such tight restrictions: no access to any instant messenger, i can only access certain folder in the intranet, can only enter certain doors in the office, and passwords are everywhere. and now, most of the sites on the web are blocked.

don’t get me wrong, i think security is great. that’s why i haven’t complained about it till now. until they just started blocking random websites, even those we need to do research on.
