    If there's a way of getting it to work in IE8, lovely, if not, it may have to wait for IE9/Chrome in September.
    1 * USB Memory Stick
    1 * Copy of firefox portable ( portableapps.com )
    1 * Another computer with usb slot

    Insert memory stick, run firefox portable with relevant proxy settings --> go to site --> Should work

    Maze solving algorithm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia <-- my solution is a "left/right hand algorithm" - to solve a harder maze, it could be added to to use the "pledge" algorithm. Sadly the constructs don't exist in this demo (but do in the generic blockly language) to write "pledge", and nor is it needed, nor any quicker for this maze.

    Doesnt seem to work in IE 9 either, just used portable firefox from PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB, portable and cloud drives

    Coming up with a solution for all maps would be interesting.

    EDIT: LOL in the time I was talking to someone and posting, the above 2 posts were posted.

    Code:
    while (!false) {
      if (Maze.isWall(1)) {
        Maze.move(0, "tm-5-ao8");
      }
      Maze.turn(0, "aumqks.p");
      Maze.move(0, "idfl:jmi");
      if (Maze.isWall(1)) {
        Maze.move(0, "xeis7::x");
      }
      Maze.checkTimeout("t3e_.m_n");
    }
    Is mine He just sticks to left and runs around! But gets there eventually Little smarter than normal, but not brilliant. Wish there were more maps

    You should be able to drop into auth bypass/whitelist and it'll work

    Ah, i meant the portable firefox + network share (we have it on our programs drive) = nice emergency browser.

    Just be aware that any passwords saved are saved to the network drive...

    I think it's a problem with IE8's DOM, with the proxy disabled it still whinges that "Object doesn't support this property or method".

    Ah well, 'tis not that big an issue... if the IT teacher would like it sooner rather than later I can set up Firefox in AppShared, I'll not worry too much otherwise. Cheers all.
