I’ve posted before about doing personal web stuff (read: time wasting) at work.

Here are two more excellent options. They are both web proxies, which hide your IP address while you roam the internet and help you by-pass workplace filtering systems.

If you can’t get through to your LastFM account, or Facebook account or favorite instant messaging client at work, you can still get through using these resources:

HideMyAss – Free and speedy proxy service. Use it to hide your IP address and get through network filters. HideMyAss is part of a Privax proxy network, so if it’s blocked, there are several others you give a try. There is nothing to configure, just type-in the address of the website you want to visit and press ‘Go’. – Extensive directory of free proxy servers. There are well over 15,000 Proxy Servers on the Web. As of this writing, claims to have 4,718 working proxies available for you to choose from, so that might be a pretty good place to start.
