Meet Irving and Joe.
I have no idea who they really are but we are becoming such fast friends that I had to give them names.
The new web filtering system, switched on earlier this month by our overly-large school district, now blocks ads on pages that are otherwise deemed appropriate for our tender eyes to see.
In their place we get this picture along with some text explaining that if we really have a “business need” to see the ad we should contact our IT service desk.
Of course, without actually seeing the ad, we have no way of knowing whether there is a “business need”. But at least I feel much more secure.
As I said, I have no idea who Irving and Joe are, but considering that they’re sitting in front of a Mac 5000 series machine (most likely a 5400 or 5500), which were common in our elementary schools in the late 90’s, they’re at least in middle school by now.
I wonder if they’ve discovered how famous they are.
