However something called "Websense" has blacklisted these sites? ok maybe poker, but no sirius? Is there anything I can do to end the boredom? Thx

um your screwed

back when I was in highschool (3-4yrsago) they had WebSense Filtering proxy on their servers. And it detected EVERYTHING I couldn't even host my own url proxy to get through on.

Depending on how long your in for and if you have the $$$ then just as well pick up a cell phone data plan for your laptop with a USB modem (it will save countless nights of agervation on trying to get around websense)

If that doesn't work beg and plead with the Network Administrator of the hospital and see if he will be nice enough to put you on a dedicated unfiltered IP

Hello

Not really, websense is web filtering software. It has been installed to do that and if the network administrator has blocked access to them sites he/she would have done that for a reason.

I would maybe suggest playing the games which are built into the computer or find something else to do.

Don't do that unless you want to be more bored :)

And yeah. You can't really bypass Websense. Well, you could, and I could tell you, but it would get me banned from the forum :)
