I'm so glad I found this topic via google, been blocked from CAG for about 3-4 months now, good to be back. But cheapyd.com is kinda weird. It seems like a low-end version of CAG, missing graphics. Oh well...

CheapyD just wanted to let you know www.cheapyd.com is blocked by Websense. :( Since the company I work for uses Websense I still can't see the site! Just giving you the heads up and others as well.


Yeah I'm blocked by Websense too. :cry: I bet that if Cheapy removes the keywords in the html for cheapyd.com it won't be blocked anymore. :D

That's how I browse digg and joystiq (www.digg.com has keywords, but digg.com doesn't. Just like how www.joystiq.com also has keywords, but ds.joystiq.com doesn't).
I give up on everything, even giving up on everything.

Alas, my CAG browsing days at work are over.

About a week ago they instituted a whole bunch of site blocks. Most notably to me cheapassgamer.com and cheapyd.com. Apparenlty CAG is gaming/blog related and cheapyd is a gaming site.

Other sites to go are sites dealing with weapons, and adult themed content sites, such as tshirthell.com and some demonbaby.com site my friend went to, along with countless other sites that make the internet fun. Those are just a few off the top of my head.

According to the warning message they aren't considered appropriate for the business environment.

Oh, but Longaberger and eBay apparently still work. Apparently those are ok for business time...bastards.



It's no specific firewall that I can tell. Just the company logo that says you can't view the site because it is (whatever the site pertains to) related. They do have a link at the bottom that says, "If you think you have reached this warning in error, click here to proceed to the page." Then it gives a long warning about how all internet usage is logged and reported, etc.

It's most likely this way because CheapyD.com has tons of links from CheapAssGamer.com, including some graphics.

I'm an Assistant Systems Administrator (Asssysadmin, if you will) and we use Surf Control as our web filter, which categorizes CAG as a games-related site, which is generally blocked. CheapyD.com isn't listed yet in the version we are running. We have most of our access locked out, except for the IT staff and a few VIPs in the company.

at work, going to cheapyd.com, when i click on the forum links on the main page it redirects me to cheapassgamer.com its also the same with the news on the left side, like sunday ad threads and such. finally when you are here, http://www.cheapyd.c...orums/index.php if you click the cheap ass gamer banner at the top that takes you to the main page, it goes to cheapassgamer.com

sweet!

My school blocked the site despite me being the only one who uses it (probably because I use the computer closest to the Tech Lady's office and when they leave they usually see the top logo and probably saw it and promptly blocked it.

My School's Tech lady is an idiot though. we had server troubles for over a year, and lots of random things are blocked (like the word black)

Well I tried what's instructed in the OP but I still can't open most links.
"Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at click.linksynergy.com."
I found that in the HOSTS thing and put the # but it still doesn't work.

Well, they finally blocked CAG along with a ton of other gaming sites at work. Strangely enough, GAF still works though.

I'm gonna try the IP address to see if that'll do anything.

Content blocked by your organizationReason:This Websense category is filtered: Games. URL:http://cheapassgamer.com/So I made used PHProxy 0.5 on my private server and just access it through there. But some features dont work like search and some others like trying to add games. Guess i should be doing that from home.
But I love how I can access Hulu, Facebook, Yahoo Fantasy Football >

I was on CAG all the time at work until they blocked it. Then I found the www.cheapyd.com loophole and they blocked that a few months ago. I found a backdoor link to the CAGcast that I've been using until yesterday and now that is blocked!

Does anyone know any other useful backdoor links to access CAG? Today is the first day I've been at work without access to CAG and I didn't know what to do with myself.

My worksite blocks any site with the word "game" in it. We used to be able to do pickups and trades in fantasy football at work, apparently they didn't like that too much.

I'm not blocked from the site--I can see anything...except my stuff.  I've posted twice recently in Video Game Pricing Advice and I've received lots of notifications, but I can't see any of them.  I can't even find those posts.  I wondering if my post will appear here or if it will show up at all.

 

Is there some easy fix that I've missed?

 

Thanks.

I manage free wifi at a business and blocked a bunch of porn sites and torrent related sites and somehow CAG is now blocked. I didn't use keyword "ass" so it's not that, in fact I only used a few keywords and mostly porn domains... Anyone have any clues what's going on?

Edit: figured it out! I had er.com blocked, I was probably blocking all er ending sites, oops
