Ah well, gone are the days of midday help from my Government laptop. As of today I get the huge dreaded eagle laden BLOCKED page with a note that says the reason is "Outdated PHP". Crying or Very sad

Maybe someday outdated no more...

I used to work for DOD. We had a couple of machines that were not certified and did not touch our networks etc for getting on the web and looking stuff up, and the certified machines that were locked down to the point you could barely work on them.

Yup, there is one "off network" station on the floor but it is only for certain specific functions that require that, not general web surfing. Unfortunately. Wink

And our government issue laptops are locked down pretty tight... USB ports blocked, drives encrypted, some work must be done "on the OOB" which means no access to anything "out of bounds" like email or printing or the internet.

Fun stuff.

I work for Australia's DoD where, curiously, dsxchange.com is blocked but www.dsxchange.com is not!

There is a mechanism for requesting that a particular site be unblocked (at least here there is). The case is usually that the site is relevant to your work. That's a case easily made.

Sure, there is such a mechanism here as well. Problem is it's not relevant to my work. Wink

And today... not blocked so no clue what the heck is going on here.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯
