:(  
I moved into my summer flat today. It hadn't been cleaned. The toaster is broken. The hot water isn't. And it BLOCKS FILESHARING SITES. I can't even download my BBB fanmix. I am so sad right now. I just want to go home, and I'm stuck here for a MONTH.

That blows. *makes you toast and warms your water*

Are there any sites it doesn't block? Like, maybe sendspace or something? Because I could download for you and send it along via a non-blocked site.

*hugs*

Nope. I tried them all because I thought it might be a cruel fluke, but nada. Yet youtube and fb are up. I think it's damn cheeky, considering no other student acom blocks anything but torrents.

Honestly, I could CRY.

Do you have a laptop? Could you take your computer somewhere else and use their internet to download?

Oh, well yes. But that's so CUMBERSOME and I shouldn't HAVE to and WHINE WHINE ETC.

Could someone upload it through gmail and send it to you?

Well, I managed to make mediafire work, so I got the mix okay. :D

And washing in other circumstances too!

FORTUNATELY FOR MY SANITY, the hot water is back now. It's actually roasting hot, not that I mind. I have a hellish taste in my showering experience.

Thank you anyway, though! ♥

Have you tried any proxies, like http://speedbreakers.info/ ? Most proxies block filesharing sites, but it's always worth poking about to see if you get lucky. Here's a zip I have on mediafire -- try it out: http://download249.mediafire.com/g9i5cnozb0mg/oedi3owa4dz/Disc1.zip

IT'S SO WEIRD: Mediafiyah works, but nothing else does - and nor does that proxy, sadly. D:

Oh well, at least you have mediafire!

That SUCKS. My place last year blocked torrents and it was so painful.

I've always lived in places that block torrents, so I can live without them. Megaupload? Not so much. >:(

Boo on the filesharing, on the good side, at least you can still get LJ and it's only a month. :/

OMFG WHAT A THOUGHT. If they blocked lj I'd have to MOVE. Simple as.

Boo on blockage of filesharing sites. And on everything else, too. :/ I'd say it's only a month, but a month is a long time.

Thanks. With time, say ten years, I'm sure I'll get over it. :D

And maybe some therapy! Therapy is always good! :)
