This is the message one gets as of yesterday when trying to access my harmless little blog from within our Agfa hospital. Was it the picture with the pointed ears that triggered the porn filter? Or perhaps I got someone upset? Oh, well, maybe Sirius Satellite Radio will pick up my contract for $200 Million since I'm apparently now a trash-talker. Happy (Expletive Deleted) Thanksgiving!!
As it turns out, the entire Blogspot.com domain has been filtered out by the hospital. So...shall I be paranoid and assume my blog was the target, or am I just the innocent victim of a wider purge? I'll let you know!
Addendum: I'm letting you know..... The problem was apparently some glitch in the nanny service. Why it was limiting Blogspot sites all of the sudden, we could never discover, but I am indeed once again available within the hospital. Yet another excuse to surf rather than work....

We are looking at putting in web filtering into our organization, and it is precisely issues like you just experienced that worry me. I just dread a Radiologist calling me in a rage because they went to view their daughter's Myspace page, and it gets incorrectly blocked, perhaps with a pornography warning. Yikes.

Hey Dalai,
Are you going to be at RSNA? If so we are trying to have a small blogging get together. Let me know if you are interested.
