    Hey, can someone please tell me what the url was that enabled you to connect to the forums, instead of using forums.overclockers.co.uk? I saw it posted on here a while ago but forgot it.

    Thanks :)

    Thanks but that's not the correct one. The other one didn't use the same URL at all. It was like..connecting to the site through another site, like a proxy site but not :/

    Hmm might be, not too sure. Thing is my college has blocked the URL since last year, then stuck me with a 4.5 hour long break on Thursdays, so need a way to connect before I die of boredom!

    I'll check on Monday :)

    There is another one (or at least there was), but you're college has probably blocked the IP as well as the URL :)

    Get Tor. It's a fantastic little tool. Gets round school blocks no problem, even when they block the internet to our IT room. I use OperaTor specifically, but any will do.

    Download a php proxy script and upload it to some webspace.

    I've done the same and it's extremely useful, even for legit work purposes. As they block a lot of legit work related websites as well.

    Set up a password for it though, as it will spread and the admins will notice a lot of people using it.

    What happened to this? I used to use it when I didn't want to start a new browsing session when logged in permanently. I miss it. :(

    Blame Slackworth - he's the owner of the domain (gave it to him last year). :p :)

    Could have fixed it myself up to a few weeks ago, but I don't touch other people's domains.
