    I play a lot from work (I'm a civil servant after all) and access to certain sites is closed. Redhotpawn is firewalled for me. As is Timeforchess and now this morning Chessatwork is also gone.

    I'm down to just playtheimmortalgame.

    Please please set up a few more to get around these pesky IT types. Otherwise I may eventually have to do some work.

    Good man that works too. Sound, I don't feel so nervous now that I have 2 options. Still would prefer more though.

    Until the IT department decides to put that under their restrictions too!!

    Either that or have a quiet word with them!!

    Thanks for the replies lads. As I said I'm a civil servant so in Ireland that means I can only be fired for one of the following:

    1) Theft of Government property
    2) Actual violence toward a colleague at work.

    Since I'm neither violent nor a thief (just bone lazy!) I'm safe enough.

    Both of these addresses are also firewalled so no good there.

    Thanks though.

    I think an alternate name for the sight should be ACCOUNTING AND INTERNAL AUDITS.COM That should keep them guessing for awhile.

    How about corrupting the morals of an IT person? sort of a BO approach.

    All that IT stuff is done off site in Dublin.

    One girl (who I know and used to work with) is in charge. She's uncorruptable. She is the most stuck up anti-fun moralistic bore I have ever met. That's why she has the job.
