    Still, it's a beutiful part of the country and you have a nice view whilst waiting for pages to load.

    Re: EMBC Schools

    Anyone having filtering problems on EMBC at the min?

    Originally they said it was just our site and it had never happened before, then they said it was a few sites - i dont think they're quite sure!!!

    They keep blocking Search Engines as part of the default block settings, then it stops for a few hours or even days and then the problem reoccurs.

    The support don't return calls, dont update you and today they said they cant give and update until after 1pm because they cant ring NetSweeper as they're in Canada, and then they might not be able to give us a call back because they might be too busy - nice to feel like a valued customer!

    Ask to use another proxy server if they keep stuffing that one up. There are multiple ones within Netlinc with different levels of blocking. Some are incredibly "loose".

    Not far away from you Chris and our Broadband is wireless, I wouldn’t complain to much if we got 2Mb but on fast days we get closer to 1.5 and this has also been hived out to two local primary schools who connect to our internet feed via DSL links.

    Our RBC should be supplying 8Mb according to their website they fulfil these government requirements?
