    So our sys admin goes crazy with blocking sites on the internet at work and just blocked fiverr! Im pissed.

    I have an iphone and the browser on it sucks. Downloaded the skyfire browser and i can at least mark gigs as completed, but cant attach files :(

    Any suggestions other than finding a new job? Know of any work-arounds with the iphone?

    Frustrated!

    Tether your iPhone internet with your work PC, or grab a VPN/PROXY

    I can understand frustration, but I don't think pissed off is a reasonable thing to feel in this case. My job I worked at also blocked Fiverr, so instead of getting pissed, I worked lots of overtime and saved every penny I could, and then I quit. Now I work full time internet marketing and I can browse Fiverr whenever I want to from the comfort of my home.

    I guess the first question should be why are you on Fiverr at work? I'd probably fire you. No offense.

    Your admin likely blocked Fiverr to stop people like you from taking care of personal issues at work instead of, you know, working. I hear that's why they put up those web filters these days.
