You should be careful trying to get around your corporate firewall. There are always ways to do it, but in this day and age, most ways are detectable if your IM department wants to, especially in larger corporations.

There is a way to view T-Nation articles (or other sites) from behind a corporate or school firewall if they do not block Google cached, but you need to know the article URL. Take the T-Nation article URL and search for it in Google. Most times the first hit will be the page you want and it will likely have a cached link. When you use the cached link you will get the article's text, but no pictures or videos.

You can't surf around the site using this method. It's not perfect, but better than nothing.

I'm not sure but I think that if you hit google cached you will most of the time get the images and all because it is a "snapshot" of the page? And you have to specifically choose text only after that. I would think google chached would probably be blocked as well. Maybe there is a way to get text only from the search page...I don't know...

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I was describing what I see at work behind the firewall. The cached page images use direct links to the site so they're blocked and the images do not load. Cached from home, the images appear.

I'm also surprised that Google cached is allowed at work. Yahoo cached is blocked.

While we're on the subject, I'm glad Wolf puts his vids on Photobucket now. It's not blocked at work like YouTube is.
