I don't know what happened... I have been working here for 2 months now and s10forum has worked every day since day one. I can access everything online... even NWS websites. We have a firewall, but everyone here uses the internet and nothing is blocked. As of yesterday, I can't access s10forum or gmtruckhq without going through one of those proxy bypass things i found on google. what gives? Was it something that happened at work that they are now blocking me from it, or did something change with the website? Also, does anyone have any suggestions on a good proxy bypass to use that isn't annoying and slow? Thanks in advanced...

Nothing was changed on here. Clearly if your company just changed something like the firewall then clearly it would not have been anything on here. It is not like we would have magically changed the settings on here the very instant your company changed a FW setting or added a new FW.

As far as proxies I do not recommend any of them. I get in trouble when i do such things.

my advice just keep changing proxies. we did that in high school cause every week they would see the new one we were using. If your company has any kind of IT department, they probably have every site visited saved and can be reviewed. They could have it setup to be flagged if visited X amount of times. You might have just been getting on the forum too much. It was like that with myspace in high school til they figured it out and blocked it.

hmm, yeah maybe you are right... when I walk around the office, everyone is on the internet all the time. People even keep it open like it's no big deal... i try to minimize if someone walks by.
but yeah, i have pandora open all the time too.
and we only have 1 guy from IT... he seems pretty cool, so ida know if he would do that. that sucks though...

SNC-Lavalin America, on the corner of 5th and Penn ave... near East Liberty.

It's formally known as Eichley Engineering. They were bought out by SNC back in 2002.

Im not too sure where West Mifflin is... I just moved to Pittsburgh back in May, lol
