Websense is hogging up my pc in Digital Electronics

Well, I don't really know if anyone else has the same problems I'm having at school. Your probably not but my school and maybe yours is going through a wierd security upgrade.

The "thing" causing this problem is called Websense, a program that checks a website before it allows you to access it, very rarely this happens, or it just declines it and blocks it off, extremely common.

The bad thing about it is that it has blocked just about every website that my friends and I have been trying to get to. They've blocked Miniclip, Ebaumsworld, even CHSRobotics, which is a website that I made for the school itself. I mean they have everything restricted. And it always gives some reason as to blocking it, although it usually is some off the wall reason, like yesterday (04/25/05), I was trying to go to Programmers Heaven.com, and it came up with "This website has been blocked by Websense. Reason = Religious Cult Activation and Suspicious Drug Abuse. ". I didn't know that over night the publishers turned into a crackhead KKK group ( No offense to all those of African American race. ).
