    Interesting Article on Proxies

    Slashdot Your Rights Online Story | Power To the Pop-Ups

    Bennet "peacefire" Hasselton moaning about not making enough cash from his proxies.
    Chinese dissidents my backside - kids in schools more likely. These aren't a public service, they're a business.

    Note that he points out that some filters now update every few hours. Well.. we don't need to - we catch his sites by their tell-tale signature, and https interception. SmoothWall still updates daily in normal operation - though in an emergency we can publish in a sub-hour window.

    Watch out facebook addicts you'll get

    Bennet "complete pillock" Hasselton you mean, he's an asshat. "Yes, random persecuted dissident I, the mighty Bennett Hasselton, will protect you! You can afford to pay, right?...."

    Hey kids, want to mess around on the internet? Buy your own Internet connection / coffee at a place with wireless - it's cheap. Using someone elses? Yup, they get to decide what you can access - they pay for it.
