    It got unblocked here in Lancashire when we swapped to that dreaded netsweeper. It was great when it was blocked high capacity cartridges lasted more than a week, i didnt find the print queue jammed up with 1GB jobs (HOW DID THEY EVEN MAKE A JOB THAT BIG!!!!). Only downside was the number of "Can you bypass the filter and let us get back on sparkle box?" requests

    And tell me about it! Oh the complaints when it got blocked, and the number of staff - when told why it was blocked - just said "but it's a brilliant resource, why can't we use it?" .. GAH!

    AFAIK a letter went out to heads giving them the power to allow to block at individual school level, yes I'm also having issues with "that" filter sticking on checking web site screen
