Blocked by Websense 

Our Afghan correspondent, Major John Tammes, stationed at the Bagram Air Base, reports that the signal folks up there have installed Websense, which is now blocking access to Chrenkoff and many other blogs as "message boards and clubs".

Drawing on the collective wisdom and experience of the blogosphere, is there any way to unblock access through Websense?

By the way, if you're in California, Major Tammes thinks you might be interested in this function:
