Hi

I can't use myspace on the school computer but I know there's a way to unblock it. Do you know what way? Thanks.

I tried for ages to get through on my school computers but I never got there.
In australia, it's blocked by the department of education so there's no way of getting to blocked websites while on the DET server. Is it like that in the US or is it your individual school's comuter system that has it blocked?

when I was in highschool I used to bypass it by going into babel translator and typing in the site to translate. It would open up in a new frame, but I could still go on the site.
I know there is an easier way to bypass it though, I forgot..

Ask any one of my high school students.....they all know how to do it. They don't do any of their homework and god forbid, they bring a pencil to school to write with, but they can hack into the computers. I'm so proud LOL

I strongly recommend that you don't. Most schools have tracking software and the acceptable use policy you signed to use the computer could cause you to be on the receiving end of disciplinary action.

Seriously, I can't tell you how many parents we have contacted because kids thought they were sneaking in a back door to access blocked sites. And - it ends up in their permanent record as an AUP violation.

About those permanent records... What are really the consequences of having something go on your record, other than maybe the principal knowing you have a history next time you wind up in his/her office? Haha

I always heard about the elusive permanent record and people threatened that if we were bad that we'd never go to college because our permanent records would be tarnished, but transcripts don't show stuff like that, so I've always wondered what the deal was.

Was it an empty threat all along? Haha.

Lindsey - good question. In our district, as long as the violation isn't anything serious, it doesn't amount to much. It is more the inconvenience of the consequences and the notification of parents that most kids hate.

If the violation is serious (not Myspace of Facebook, but a less "acceptable" site), and it does end up resulting in suspension it could potentially affect a college application. It is an outside chance - but it could. While it is not part of the transcript, many colleges contact the school for other records about the student - including attendance. And counselors and administrators are often interviewed regarding a student that has applied to a school where it is very competitive to get in.

So - it is unlikely that minor discipline violations will matter much, other than the impression that it makes on those that may be allies in helping you get into a school.

The question is...is THIS the right place to be asking this information? Even if I knew how, I wouldn't be telling a minor here at this site how to break a school rule.

Do you have a home computer, where you can access MySpace or other sites on your own time, using your own computer?

In my opinion...

The school owns the internet connection, not you. They pay for it, they install it, and they provide the equipment to access it.

Because of that, they have every right to tell you what you can do on that connection. And if they say you can't go on MySpace...well, it's their connection, and they can tell you what is allowed. So even if there is a technical way around it, I don't think there's a way to do it without in essence using someone else's property to do something they explicitly told you not to do...sort of like if your sibling told you "You can wear my shirt, but only if you promise not to get any stains on it" and you borrowed it, but then deliberately poured ketchup all over.
