Alternative URLs?

Hello,

I work for a big company and they blocked wristtwisters.com a couple of months back. Since then, I've been using translate.google.com to get through, but I can't log in or post. I even tried getting them to unblock it. It seems the site is on a virtual site on a shared server. I'm guessing my company blocked another website on the actual server. Though, I can connect to the WT IP (67.18.254.98) as well as theplanet.com. I was wondering if there was an alternative URL I can use... maybe something like http://67.18.254.98/~wristtwisters or something.

Thanks

Doubtful :P It was funny trying to get the help desk to unblock it. I said something along the lines of: "When I'm on my break, I like to read this family-friendly website called Wrist Twisters." lol...

Setup your workstation at home for RDP. Connect to it from work and use it to browse the WT.

I browse it through translate.google.com. If I need to post, I post via my iphone. Because of this issue, I find myself posting on honda-tech.com and...oh no, 600rr.net. :X
