Aaaaaaand the work filters are back up.
I came home from vaccay to find that a) someone had been on my computer, and b) that I had no internettes access whatsoever. Naturally, I thought that I had been blocked out, on the basis of my surfing too much.
Luckily -- no. The licence had expired, and we were all back up. But there were no filters in place! Metafilter! eBay! Whatever else!
One glorious day. It lasted one glorious day. I'd even bookmarked MeFi, which was overly optimistic on my part. Alas.
Good times, good times...
