weird today I got a new message when I got to your site. My work filtering system is warning (still have access). It says: The Websense category "URL Translation Sites" is filtered. I noticed you added text on the homepage but did you change the meta data?

no, I didn't change the meta data only added the text. Your filter must be looking for keywords on webpages.
If that is so, I think you could take care for such sort of filters by placing this info on another page or better yet, encode the text as unicode and transform it back with JS. That way, the text will still be rendered fine, but will be hidded from the filter if it's made to only analyze web pages' source code.

You can use something like this. My original script got the text from a database (email address), for arbitrary text you'll probably want something like either the switch, or a text file filename. If you put the text on the querystring the filter will probably still get it. There's also a way to figure out the width of the image automatically based on the text, but that's a little more complex. To do that you could load a custom font and use the imagettftext function to write the text using that font, and the imagettfbbox function will give you the pixel width of a certain string of a certain font size, angle, and font. You can use that function without actually creating the image, so you can use that then create the image of the appropriate size for the text. Anyway, I used this:

<?php$id = intval($_GET['id']);$w = 200;$h = 15;switch ($id){  case 1:	$text = "some text";	$w = 50;	break;  case 2:	$text = "a different line of text";	$w = 250;	break;  default:	$text = "please hammer, don't hurt em";	$w = 300;	break;}$im = imagecreatetruecolor ($w, $h); /* Create a blank image */$bgc = imagecolorallocate ($im, 255, 255, 255);$tc = imagecolorallocate ($im, 0, 0, 0);imagefilledrectangle ($im, 0, 0, 200, 15, $bgc);imagestring ($im, 2, 2, 2, $text, $tc);header("Content-Type: image/png");imagepng($im);exit();?>

<img src="get_image.php?id=1">

Any idea why I can't login on facebook? When login in it says:Anyway to fix this?
The version I am running doesn't support logging into sites and the new version http://www.thrufare.com/v5b2/ was supposed to fix that alothough I have not been able to get it to work. On top of that the guy who wrote the script had a support forum but his site is down. When it gets back up I will look into this for you.

I noticed you changed the color on the logo, which works. (I didn't like the option 2 with the olive because it looked way military.) However, the drop down for Advanced is still coming up in the olive, which makes it look a bit odd color wise. The contrast is there, but it's just not sitting right with me. Definitely looks clean design wise, the few sites I tried seemed to go through. I did put in one bogus just to see what would happen, and the error message stayed at the top, just under the header bar for the entire time I was in there. (Like if I used the back button to go to another site, it would still be hanging out.) And until you hit advanced, it does look awfully empty, but then, Google used to look a lot more empty too. :) I've no experience with proxies, so I can't advise past the design and user friendliness of it. I have to admit, my gut reaction was to treat it like a search engine, even though the title bar states the purpose pretty clearly. However, if someone has their browser minimized in any meaningful way, they don't see it all by far.Good luck with it!
