    Sorry if that was misleading; its the google safesearch that isnt perfect, SW is great and although i havnt had chance to hammer it over a long period ive yet to find a way past the filters - not like *EVERY* other commercial solution ive used.

Also anyone with any intelligence knows how to perform an unfiltered image search using google if they want to, so I think their filtering isn't all that effective.

    The best block we have here with E2BN is Access Database files - needed for GCSE and A Level IT coursework!
    They also said no!!
    Thank goodness for the staff filter!

    Re: Sourceforge - getting it unblocked

    Well Ive got in touch with them and they're going to give us a different policy on a few IP's which would leave all the 'innocent' stuff unblocked

    Only annoying thing is that we run an ISA server and so use an internal address range rather than the range the LEA give. So will have to setup a seperate PC just for this access

    Oh and they had categorised the site as 'freeware downloads' and blocked it because apparantly it contains a large number of games...wasnt aware there was many games on sourceforge!
