This is what I do:
There are Network connections in every classroom. Even the ones without computers. And most of them do not have computers.
Anyway, whenever I sit down in a room, the first thing I do is find the little network jack on the wall. I pop the little plastic cap off (most of these have never been used. if a computer is already plugged in, I just un plug it and plug mine in) and then I plug my cord in the whole.
I set Internet Explorer to connect using a proxy, specifically “bess-proxy.sdhc.k12/fl.us” connecting on port “8080” and then I just browse the web.I got AOL IM to work fine, but mIRC wont, AOL wont and, mIRC wont.
I dont have to log in or anything. I just plug in and browse. Matter of fact, my computer now detects if it needs to use the proxy or not, so I only entered the proxy setting once. If I am on my cable modem at home, or connecting on a dial-up it will avoid going through the proxy on its own. So all I really do, is plug in the wall and start browsing. I dont log in or mess with my setting anymore.
Again, I dont care if they even know it’s me. If they tell me to stop, I will just say “ok”. Nothing big will come of it. I am not really worried about it. I am not really going to browse kiddie porn. (I can wait 'till I get home for that.)
