Okay, I may be late to the party on this one, but just in case this is new, I must share. We have a reasonably open network at work, but they block all AOL-affiliated sites, which evidently includes the Go Network; in other words, ESPN.com is blocked. Not being an ESPN guy, I can live with that, but occasionally there’s a link there that I want to read and it’s annoying when I can’t.
Enter the coolest new tool I’ve seen in a long time: Browse At Work
Go the page, enter your URL of choice and just like that you’re in. I just showed it to a Packer-crazy buddy of mine at work, using the ESPN example and the first thing he saw on ESPN’s page was a link to Favre’s intention to play again this season. Needless to say, he’s now a fan of this tool.
There’s more information on this and similar tools at the site, BlockAvoid.
