    Hospital WiFi blocking a premier site i.e. this one

    So this is interesting, well, a little bit maybe. Headed in for a tune-up (being an old drum-brake'd, carbureted, manually-shifted version) but what's new is that The Big Smoke's Hospital Board has now (I assume) put nzhuntingandshooting.co.nz on the list of banned sites, or names, or whatever.

    A fellow inmate kindly showed me how to use my phone as a hotspot (new meaning for that word) to bypass the restriction, but also warned me it chews through the data on my phone plan.

    Nefarious censorship or simply a wide-spread safety-net for kiddies who may log on in the hospital precinct? Although I did note that if one searches for, say, Busty Bikini'd Bahamian Beach Babes, there's no block. OK, I suppose the latter could be a morale thing :-)

    So, temporary post-outage next daze. Anyway, cloud, lining etc.

    A good VPN can get around that.

    Being in telecoms, I would advise everyone to be using a VPN these days.

    Crikey, I never realised that there was a search term "Busty bahamian beach babes".

    I tried it.

    My education continues..........thank lord the wife did't see it.

    Yes, have just spent a fortnight at Burwood Hospital watching over one of societies number that society has deemed needs to be watched over. To while away the hours through the small hours of the morning I took my iPad. One of the first sites I tried was this one, and yes, it was blocked. Interesting though, this site is not blocked in many government workplaces, though innocuous sites like http://www.slashdot.org which is all about programming and computers, and http://www.huffingtonpost.com which is a news site are blocked.

    I suspect slashdot.org is blocked due to the salacious sounding name and huffingtonpost.com due to the fact that it often has an advertising bar displaying everyday ladies lingerie, which, I might add, the like of which is on display at Ballantynes Department store 6 months out of the year. Go figure.

    Oh, and both the aforesaid sites were available at Burwood Hospital.

    Cheers
    Phil

    For little money, all of your devices can easily run a VPN which allows it to circumvent censorship and tracking/profiling. You can even buy a router that will run a VPN to make any device in your home secure, for little money.

    In the age of technology and data grabbing, it is a small price to pay.

    The free ones are very patchy/unreliable. You can do your research easily and find many different ones, but the one I would recommend is ExpressVPN.
