I am well aware of the ways around it. I just don't feel like using  
them. My school is extremely... well... over-reactive when you get  
around restrictions they have in place. One of their restrictions is  
"chat" sites (including but not limited to IRC gateways). If it isn't  
blocked by the filter, it will be soon :) I just feel like being a  
good boy right now I guess.

May the source be with you
