So...

They finally got round to blocking GameDev.net on Websense at work which means that I can't look at the site anymore in my lunch hour. I'd like to take the opportunity to say to them f*** *** ****s and that I'll be handing my notice in soon.

In other news, I'm working hard on this column now - I've got a decent little team together and we're talking to some awesome teams, so hopefully you guys should see something that you like soon.

f*** *** ****s


My exact sentiments about the school I was just at last year. They blocked Gamedev as well. However, the webmaster was sort of, well, a lazy bum who preferred to use MSN Messenger than actually teach us. He was so effective at teaching that the number of Higher Grade Computer Studies students dropped from 25 to 5.

The irony is that the people in charge of blocking the GDNet spend all of their days using Bittorret to download warez and movies... they've been seen many a times doing this by numerous people.

Turn the tables... Find the loophole (there's always at least one) and take down their systems. Ask for bandwidth reports and send the facts of them downloading movies to your real manager and get them out of the scene.

Seriously, I hate when people implement this kind of crap. Programmers can't work efficiently in restricted environments. It's also been proven that office workplaces are more efficient when their boss allows them to listen to music.

While I was working at IBM we were allowed to do whatever we wanted with our laptops - there was no monitoring as such. Although, I didn't fancy taking advantage of that in case they were lying.

Friend of mine working at BT during the same period was allowed 3 websites: Microsoft.com, BBC.co.uk and BT.com [oh][oh]
