    Gaming the system. Go into Starbucks. Order a drink. Sit down. Go back to the counter. Order a cookie. Two stars for the price of one. Reach Gold or freebies faster.

    ​Dumb, Starbucks, dumb.
    Very cool and not a bad idea for the cookie too....LOL

    Oh Jag! Gosh I don't check in one evening and look what happens!
    All kidding aside this has to be extremely frustrating for you!!
    Sooo sorry to hear this. Lets hope it's just temporary??
    We shall see Elizabeth but even if not, yes you are right and frustrating does not even cover it all. My memory of my wonderful small family owned business will not go unforgotten compared to what I do for the company to block a sire like iMore... Hell it is not sex related or anything like that. Damn near all my co-workers and the owners have iPhones too but they don't understand my point of view and it does not matter if they did.

    Jag, try something like LogMeIn running at home. Then you can use a regular browser over port 80 and remote into your home pc. From there you can surf iMore to your hearts content

    It was weird to tell you the truth when you are in a routine no different than I am with my job. I sorta got over it because there was nothing I could do about it.
    The sad thing is that they blocked such an innocent site and not once have I ever missed a beat at all of the jobs given to me or what I am responsible for doing at work I should so.

    bamf I might consider it as I actually just off the phone with a friend i was talking to him about the same thing. It is still going around their firewall and server to do it and I don't know if i want to get nailed at that you know what I mean? I will weigh it and do the best I think.
    1000 more likes!! we can do it
    Yeh we have less that 1000 likes to hit 20K which i think is amazing guys. Lets get into it and knock that out and get Lizzie or Wendy or both to come up with a special something that all of us can download and keep as a momento.

    I need to share a few things with the regulars and my friends of 20K although this deals more with my Volunteer position more than anything so with that....It seems today our wonderful IT dept of 1 decided to shut down and lock out many websites through our server and one is iMore. The funny thing is i was signed on all day today and usually stay signed on from Morning until l go home and do my Volunteer forum work in the AM and through out the day as i see fir every few hours. That is really going to change and i am not going to use the iMore forum app or Tapatalk for other reasons.

    The only reason I am letting you know this is so that if you don't see me do what i like to do in here every morning and say good morning and have a few mins of fun before I actually work my real job, You will know why and not wonder where I am but it is just one of those things. As far as my role with iMore, I will work that out between my team leader and evening hours. Nothing will change how I do my job and the capacity and desire to do it and if anybody knows me you know that won't change.

    I am only sorry that I will not be able to see and participate in 20K in the hours I have become use to and will is it. I know there are many capable people here to keep it going in the day time hours and there are a few that i don't need to name that. knows how to reach me when needed or to just say hello. Sorry to all you guys but keep that coffee and breakfast coming and somebody pleaseeeeeeeeeee send me my morning cup of coffee through iMessage....

    Anyway I care very much for each and everyone of you and hopefully it might be temporary but doubt it. See you all around you can count on that.

    PS This IT guy did not lock down CB or AC but even though I can get onto those sites and passport login the link to imore is broken and because it has been locked out by the web address so i had thought of that and even using tipb but the redirector takes it right to iMore which is locked.
    Jag -- that really sucks. I hope you can get a work-around so you can come on iMore when you need to.

    I use LogMeIn all the time to get to machines. It is how I trouble shoot all my friends and families issues.

    You are not circumventing the company firewall, because you are not doing any of the surfing on their interwebz. The remote session is established to the pc at home then everything is run from there.

    another, more costly option is pick up a WiFi hotspot and use that through out the day when you want to connect back to iMore or any other sites you might want to visit.

    Are you using a company provided machine or BYOD?

    Company PC and the first part of your comments might have some merit that I might give closer thought to. I will think about it over the weekend when i am off and let you know what i decided to do.

    The one thing is we all know and I even knew about logmein before is what is morally right for me at work with my job, length of time there ( 7 Years) and other things to think about that i don't want to throw away. had a long chat a while ago with another old MN friend from one of our other forums that give me something to think about or not over think so to speak so we shall see.

    Good question re BYOD. If so, no-one can say anything about what you do on your own time.

    Even with a BYOD solution you are still connecting to the company backbone. Some companies, like mine, have a guest VLAN so all non trusted machines can only get to the interwebz. They still filter traffic on the VLAN but not as strictly as internally.

    Jag, let me know if you need any help with LogMeIn, if that is a way you want to go. You could also talk to the IT guy and ask if you can use LogMeIn to connect to your home PC from time to time if your family needs some kind of connectivity help at home.
