Hey everyone...this is very random, but my school decided to block youtube. I would love to get back on there to surf and was wondering if anyone knew of a way to get to it. They also blocked the flash.....see i can "get" to youtube by doing an nslookup and then typing in the IP, but (if i'm correct....feel free to correct me if i'm wrong) they blocked the flash so NO VIDEOS come up at all...not even the banners. Any ideas for a fun time?

No one here can help. This rule should clarify things for you.

I have reopened this topic to include some, perhaps unwanted, advice. Since these computers are school property, and run on school servers, your school has every right to assure that:
1. These are used for educational purposes, and bandwidth is not used for other activities to the detriment of legitimate needs.
2. The security and operational integrity of these shared computers is maintained, as well as the network on which they run.
3. Povisions are in place to protect the safety of its students.

Be also aware that there could be serious academic, not to mention criminal, consequences of any attempt to bypass these measures by your school.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
