Techies - HELP!!!

My arsehole IT jerks at work are planning to block Facebook (and probably Sharenator once the see my usage hehe). Is there any magical secret way that I can get around this? Layman's terms please as I am mildly retarded with 'puters....

Thanks in advance Share-bears :)

    I have an idea.
    Work. ;P
    But for realz, there ARE proxy servers you can use, they're sometimes unreliable, but you can try them if you want. You can subscribe to a mailing list, so when/if the one you're on gets blocked you can always have the new one.
    The most recent one is ''
    Make sure you uncheck the disable java box.

    Such hate. Jeez. Just trying to give simple alternatives like you asked.

    I got kicked out, trust me, best just stay out of it, either that or bring your own laptop in and change some simple settings

    You must have a strict school, huh? Plus. Are we thinking of the same definition of proxy? Yours seems to be a bit more criminal. Just a thought, sorry, :p

    it is illegal in England to do that, old men who run the country have no idea what they are talking about, so naturally ban everything approach is used

    Oh, well, I guess that explains it. I'm American.

    it is a miniaturized version of an operating system that can be booted up from a flash drive or you could use (plus side it is free downside it has a learning curve but less prone to viruses because no one really makes viruses for Damn Small Linux) try start page HTTPS and you can proxy your IPAddress through them (free too) lol.
    here is the site

    In a bad economy I would not give you boss an excuse to downsize people who surf the net when they should be working. Then again I like money.

    if it was school I would give you advice but it is not and I am a jerk in IT. So I think you should work and Be thankful that they did not block it sooner and go on this website at home, also don't go on Facebook.

    UltraSurf. I used to use it in high school and it worked for me.!

    I completely agree with MalverdeAI100, Ultrasurf is by far an excellent program. They frequently update it, it works for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, the works. I actually had teachers asking me how I got around the school blocks because they would want to show YouTube videos and such in class. It's been used in multiple schools with different proxies in place and even at a few work places. The only way it won't work, is if they restrict you from running .exe files except for known .exe files, in that case, I found a trick around that too. My class used Windows Steady State to lock down the computers, but if you rename the .exe to say, calc.exe (Windows Calculator), it would work. There are other .exe's you could name it to as well. Such as sol.exe (Solitaire), or paint.exe

    Hope this helps. Happy surfing.

    I agree with Zeon's suggestion as it's the most cost effective. My advice would be, if you have a smartphone capable of being a hotspot and a tablet capable of web surfing, to use the hotspot and a tablet to completely avoid the blocks. The other way, and my personal favorite, would be to hack your way past the blocks, but that's easily traceable by any IT basement dweller worth their salt if done at all incorrectly which I would assume isn't a viable option for you. Best case scenario though is that you're the only one going to the site so your co-workers traffic might be enough that IT may over look it because the traffic signature would be small

    Depends on how they block it. If they just block the name and not the actual ip address you can just type in the ip address. That's what I did in school because you know most it people think kids and other non it people wont be able to get past it like that. otherwise proxys or what zeon said. just depends

    Work block mine via DNS. Due to the nature of our business some of the techies can't be blocked so I simply copied their DNS Gateway.

    Wait if they block DNS couldn't you just use the IP address of Facebook and get on that way

    Probably but I'm all good now. Plus I wouldn't do facebook at work, as has already been mentioned why give them ammo in the war on the wage slave?

    My brother hacked the school's firewall in his computer tech class. I would have given him extra credit
