What the heck?

Man! I joined the Orsa forum on 3’Ts back in Feb 07 but never posted (didn’t bookmark the site, my bad) and recently found it again…started posting…and got locked out! To make a long story short the stupid IP address that comes out of the company I work for all comes out the same so when a coworker signed into the forum they thought I had 2 accounts and locked us both out! Serious bummer! Now I can’t post about Orsa watches on their forum…..the moderators response was and I quote “our records show you joined in Nov. 07′ and not one post till’ today? Looks like you’ll live without us….enjoy the forums you call home” …believe that?! Sooo bummed! Does anyone know if Orsa has another forum?

Here is the full thread. Trust me, guys: I’ll never block ANY of you. Unless you curse.

Update – It was Orsa, which is a little more understandable.

  2. Hi, I understand your frustration. I am an “IT guy” myself and I think I understand what is going on.

    Everything that comes out of your company onto the internet goes through a router and the router shows the same IP address for everyone in your company.

    I think that the easy way around this problem is for you to fo to a proxy server. the idea is that you go to a special web site, and from there go to your forum. the forum will se the IP of the proxy.

    this is a bit “hackerish” for a watch disucssion forum. Also, I apologize for the profanity in the URl below. Its a list of proxie servers to get you started if you choose to do this.
