Websense is the greatest
Normally, I try to stay away from blogging about work related things, especially now, with what's happened to Dave and Naginata. But I don't care anymore, and this is pretty funny. Websense is a program that blocks websites from being accessed on a corporate network. Up until a month ago, it pretty much just blocked things you'd want blocked at work any ways (porn, gambling, dating sites, etc.). Recently the IS department has been under new orders to tighten down the pages we're allowed access too.
Usually they don't get a chance to test commonly used sites, but you'd think they would have noticed this one at least......

Bryan had this test up on his blog, so I decided I'd take it too. For as short a quiz as it was, its pretty accurate. I think the actual Briggs-Myers test I took in college stuck me as an ISFJ, which I probably agree with more, but based on recent events, i think its really probably a tie between the two.
