I am not sure what their reasons for blocking VPNs or DNS requests
were. But I am sure they were valid. So valid that after talking with

I am sure there are valid reasons to block IRC; just as there are valid
reasons to block just about anything on the network. Generally
universities tend to have rather open policies towards network use and

and I am sorry if my use of the word 'nazi' to describe it offended you.

But hey, keep those witty little quips flying. They make everyones day ;-)
