Have you ever wondered why your favorite site is still tracking how many e-mail accounts you have created, or how many times you have viewed a video on YouTube, even though you are deleting your HTTP cookies with the browser? It is because of Flash. They have what is called Local Shared Objects or LSOs that allow you to be tracked just like cookies, but aren't as easily removed. With conventional cookies you can always clear your cookie cache from within your favorite browser, however with the plugin for Mozilla called BetterPrivacy, you are able to get rid of those hidden LSO files so that big sites can't track what you are doing so easily. Even advertisers take advantage of LSOs via Adobe Flash embedded programs. This is your best defense. You can set it so that it removes every Flash LSO file when you close the browser, this way in conjunction with clearing your cookies, you can do many things that you could not before. Experiment with this add-on and have fun. Create as many of those e-mail accounts as you want. This is the answer. Have fun!

Web proxies are a great way to bypass firewalls. They are scripts setup on people's web server, that allow you to redirect HTTP traffic so that you can bypass your school, or company's firewall. I have gained access to MySpace, Craigslist, and YouTube while they have been blocked at certain locations. You can respond to messages, check your messages, and even engage in status updates, or even blog posts. Their is one problem with this method though, I have found that if the websites contain flash applications, or java applications that the embedded programs written in these languages will not use the PHP Proxy to access their data. This means that although you can check your messages on YouTube, or Facebook, you still cannot play Facebook games, or YouTube videos unless their destination servers have been allowed by your firewall. In most cases they are blocked as well, so you cannot do things like this. However, this is still a great way to bypass the firewall if all the traffic is HTTP requests. I recommend that everyone use these proxies when behind a very strict network.
Here is a free Web Proxy list: here
I recommend you visit that site, and see if any of those domain names allow you to access them from behind your firewall. If the above site has been blocked, I recommend writing down some of the domain names from a connection that isn't blocked, like your cell phone, and then trying to get access from behind the firewall. Have fun!
