I ordered it a couple days ago and my service is supposed to be activated on Thursday. Crazy fast download times, Youtube marathons, actually play some of my favorite games, like Half-Life 2, ONLINE. I can’t wait.

Why is Everyone Searching Emo?

If you looked to the right of this post you will see a list of my top posts. At this time, Funny Picture of the week 1: Emo Bull is at the top. It has been viewed 47 times. I was looking at my blog stats, and I found that most of these views come from searches. There is at least one search with the word “emo” in it everyday. I’m not saying emos are good are bad, I’m wondering just wondering, why is everyone searching emo? So this is a test, since this post has the word emo in it, will it become one of my top posts? Well see…

Websense blocks paintball websites

For those of you who don’t know, Websense is company that provides web filtering software. Most of there business comes from governments, large businesses, schools, and libraries. They have been accused of violating free speech in countries with limited civil liberties and being discriminatory for blocking certain categories of websites. Of course I despise Websense because they block paintball websites, as they are listed under Sport Hunting and Gun Clubs. This it what it says on Websense’s website:

“Sport Hunting and Gun Clubs — Sites that provide information about or directories of gun clubs and similar groups, including war-game and paintball facilities.”

This makes no sense to me because paintball has nothing to do with hunting, because you’re not killing anything, and it has nothing to do with guns because a paintball gun is not a firearm, its a paintball marker. If you want to get around Websense, here are a couple of sites that alow you to do just that:

AlienProxy.com

Kaxy.com 

Hide7.com 

Proxy.org (giant directory)

u.zip (download for a program)
