DirectX Architect — Consoles as We Know Them Are Gone

toejam316 Re:Consoles... (434 comments)

Really? I didn't notice that, what with all the hassles of making sure games are compatable with my Television, and then making sure I have the right addons for aformentioned game, oh and also making sure that I download the latest patches so I don't get stuck at area X. Oh crap, I don't have enough hard drive space left to save. Mmmmmmm... Familiarity DOES sell well, I suppose...

Now, this is all great, we dont have to pay anything, but they also give our school (as in, force) a Proxy Server which everything must pass through for suitablity. Its run by some Australian company I cant remember, and they filter out reasonable things. The school though, has access to a private section where they can add their own things to filter. Now, this may all seem fine, but we have a incompetent admin who saw fit to FILTER WIKIPEDIA under "Reference/Educational, Social". How is this right? How can a SCHOOL filter a information website? I mean fine, they filtered Bebo, but filtering actual school related things? Thats a bit too far, dont you agree? They've done this to heaps of things, Google Images amoungst others. What do you suggest? They keep a log of everything and do random checks (I goatse'd a few people before the admin caught on and went there >:-D), so they definately know what they're blocking. Why would they do this though, and do you have any suggestions to evade it?"
