I'm a medical resident and working at a Veterans hospital. I'm on call tomorrow during all the good college football games. The problem is that I can't even check scores online, as the net has a govt installed blocker that for some reason blocks all sports sites. Anyone have the same problem and found a way around it? I tried every site i could think of including espn cnnsi yahoo-sports, excite-sports. Please help.
thanks.

Yup, the only sports info i get is from newspaper home pages. It works, but not all work bcause of the URL contents.

I've found that if the home page URL that ID's it as a sports page doesnt exist in the URL for the specific page on that site you want to get to then you can access it. I copy the links and sent um to my work E mail address, then cut and pasted um into the file, open, function. add um in to the favorites menu if the link works.
nice try, jackboot!dr hoo

Sure, first someone gives you help on this, then next thing they know agents of the state are knocking on their door. I can't imagine what kind of charges people are opening themselves up to by "subverting federal security measures."

Excuse me while I go read some patriotic news:

Now if you every use google news, don't you dare look at the sports section!
