    One to filter Happy wheels

    I don't think it's been posted here before but teachers complained our boys were accessing an unsavoury game called Happy wheels through yayoye so I have added it to our filter.

    Whole site was unblocked on our Smoothie... added it to blocks for now and sent the URL through the feedback bit.

    Cheers!

    I'm a bit worried about that. It gets *very* blocked on our test rigs here.

    If you PM me some details we can take a look for you?

    Me being an idiot, sorry. I use IE with proxy on and FF without proxy here, and I use FF to administer the Smoothie, so when I changed my group membership to check, I just opened a new FF tab to test... a new, unproxied tab... that then loaded the game.

    Taking out the custom block, and testing in IE as I should have done first, confirms that I am an idiot and the Smoothie is better than me.

    The Students here have still managed to get around the filtering system, they can save that game as a MHTML Document (.mht) on a USB disk. However we have blocked the file extension from running from machines. This is a problem which some of you might face even though you have blocked it from filtering.
