Inspired by the thread about accessing youtube etc from client sites here is a non witty poll to reveal what level of site access companies allow access to these days. Tick as many as apply.

If you're on the bench, think of your last client

No I won't, they didn't even give me a good riddance card.

Pretty much everything if you use a proxy ( they arnt blocking public ones! ) Most stuff if you dont ( Youtube, facebook,obvious porn sites etc are blocked )

I can probably access everything, but it doesn't mean I will...

I mean without the help of a proxy

You don't have to necessarily visit these sites, just know that you could since they;'re not blocked

Bit of a catch 22 that one.

That changes it a bit, but I reckon it still counts since public proxy's are somthing that should be blocked anyway.

Nor here :D Last client tho was very strict - had blocks on nearly everything except google and CUK (thankfully!) Some content was bloacked because they were related to Vehicles... WTF?!!

I guess we will have to wait until this evening, or tomorrow for most of the peeps who don't get CUK or anything to be able to vote... slightly biased right now!

*some* very few sites are blocked, I can access CUK, webmail, notworking sites and most others.

Although everynow and then the proxy throws a wobbly and gives me 500s.

It's ok, some of us will try them for you. Probably take a few years to fully test the first option though...

Wouldn't know as I use my own company laptop,
which incidently has full HSDPA access.

Current client allows access to almost everything but monitors and checks it, then throws the book at people who accumulate offences.

Client's client, where I also have access, blocks lots of sites. One Jewish guy I worked with tried to access some innocuous Jewish site and got banner warnings for trying access a site related to "Terrorism and Race Hate"!

BTW Went to Chippenham once. Couldn't find a single place that sold chips and ham. Sort it out.

A very useful snippet there. Thanks.
