earth-2.net is now blocked at work. So is Digg, youtube, myspace(of course), and the one the kids are mad mad about, the download site for the psp.

I was half an hour late for work today because ervey motorist in the greater Boston area decided it was important to slow down and stop, so that they could have their turn watching some hammerhead on the side of the road change his tire.

Aaarrrggghhh.

We're blocked?! Must be all of that werewolf porn.

I too am blocked from work, but only the main page. The forums are fine, hence me sending this note from work! Rather than the werewolf porn, the reason stated is that earth-2.net comes under gambling.

Am I missing a sub-forum at all??

That must be the auction for Mike's picture with Winnie the Pimp

Can't be. That's part of the forum, which he said isn't blocked. The porn thing I can see, what with certain entires on the site containing phrases that might be considered pornographic when looked at by a bot / blocker. The gambling thing, however, really bothers me. There's nothing to even suggest Earth-2.net is a gambling site.

Sure, two entires (Shenmue II and Chris Brosnahan's column about Superman Returns) have the worlds gamble or gambling in them, but if that's all it takes to have a site labeled as a gambling site, then I call foul!

The only thing I can think of is that there's a gambling site that hotlinks one of our images. Maybe the site blocker is thinking said gambling site is connected to Earth-2.net because it's using an image hosted by us.

OK, for the second time this month fucking dipshit crackheads have taken crowbars or something to my van locks. The first time it was subtle, and all the doors still locked and unlocked properly and there were just a few little bits of bent metal and removed paint. They got in the back and nicked my grinder, but the company has about 6 of those so it wasn't a big deal. They couldn't even get in the front. We didn't even bother getting it fixed.

This time they went to town on the front locks, practically levering the door locks out of place and making huge dents in the metal, and they STILL couldn't get in. The downside is now that the passenger door doesn't unlock from the outside. One more little visit from the neighbourhood vandals and I might not even be able to get into the damn vehicle.

It just pisses me off that I travel from one end of the country to the other working hard and some little shit decides to try and make easy money and in the process they wreck my only means of doing my damn job. Its not like I leave ANYTHING valuable in my van, that grinder was the only thing. Not only that, its a brand new van, I only got it last year. In 4 years living there I've not had a problem and just now this starts up. Just pisses me off...

That fucking sucks! Any idea who it might be? Can you rent a garage to keep the van in?

Sounds like you need a http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyuKEK7wmsw. :laugh:

How bizarre was it that I had the same first thought?

Sounds like Stavros needs to invest in buying some shit-kicking gear. Take those shell-suit wearing douchebags down!

No garages around where I live unforunatly, its all very old terreced housing. I've no clue who it might be either, the pub around the corner fills up with the scum of the earth on a regular basis (its been shut down by police order over half the time I've lived here). I've always know I live in a bad area but rising house prices and the fact that nothing really bad happened convinced me it was on its way up. So much for that.

I'd fucking buy that Magna-volt. Its advertised by Lionel Luthor for crying out loud! Theres a man who'd know some effective super-criminalesque way of taking my revenge. At the moment I'm considering some sort of device that spits stinging acidic venom at anyone who touches the door.

I'm actually filling a giant chunky deadlock on the back now, mostly as a deterrent. For the front I have no ideas but its totally clear that theres nothing of value in there unless these people want the tape player/radio.

I got my iPod taken away from me and that sucks because thats my crack... I'm an iPod junkie. I'm like guys who inject heroin in their testicles except I inject ear buds. So I have to listen to my podcasts and music through my computer. :cry:

I talked the IT guy into opening up a couple sites. He said they don't want people downloading kiddie porn. I wanted to explain that microsoft.com isn't a hotbed of kiddie porn, but I just shook my head and laughed at him.

At least I'll be able to udate the computers now.

Did you convince them to unblock us, or did they give the site a look?

I don't know what happened. All the sudden everything was unblocked. I first noticed that Youtube and Digg were unblocked because they are on my Google homepage, so I checked this one.

No matter how hard I try I can't figure out why fake playing guitar on a cheap piece of plastic is cool. It's Dance Dance Revolution for your fingers for God's sake.

Who says Guitar Hero is “cool”?

I enjoy the series because it’s fun, just like any videogame. Personally, I'm a fan of music videogames, because I like the simplicity of timing button presses to music. I just happen to really enjoy Guitar Hero because of how awesome the music is, although the controller does make things a little more interesting (same with the DDR pads really).

See, I was never a huge fan of the Guitar Hero song selections. It was always a case of playing 5 shit songs to get to 1 great one for me. Rock Band's sort of like that, to a lesser extent, but I find that I can hate a song and still get into playing the drum parts at the very least.
