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. I bet that if Cheapy removes the keywords in the html for cheapyd.com it won't be blocked anymore.
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).

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.
Thanks to Tiphireth for the help and modium for the pics.

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

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)

Posted 14 October 2008 - 10:23 PM
is there any plans to fix? I can't post as a guest right?
I guess its better than having no CAG at all..

"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.

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

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.

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?

www.cheapyd.com doesn't seem to work for me at all, even from my home PC. Has the alt addy changed?

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