Leap that Firewall! was created by pmgisme

If your funless bosses have locked you behind a Firewall which only allows you to see the sites that they choose then try this link:

www.neave.com/planetarium/

You will be able to run a Planetarium program or Google Earth(called Flash Earth here) WITHIN your browser while at work.

No "installation" is required.

Should I point out that if your IT department have only allowed you access to white-listed sites then this site is really not likely to be on the white-list! Also, firewalls have nothing to do with blocking you from installing programs on your machine!

Unfortunately in some organisations who monitor web usage

employee (0)
Job (0)
Employer (1)

Not sure what other organisations are like but some companies watch the amount of time people spend on the web fairly closely (and I'm not talking about anything of a dubvious nature either).

What Chandler Bing on an episode of Friends found out was called the WEINUS (weenis)!

(WEekly InterNet Usage Statistics).

Yes I'm looking at the WEINUS Carl, and I don't like what I see!

(sorry, Dee has watched all 10 seasons so many times and literally has me unavoidably able to recount some of its useless scenes from memory!)
