My work may have finally blocked VN, but I cant access on my PC, but can on the phone.

Just says IP cant be found.

Thoughts?

Maybe a dumb question but the DNS is what recognizes the URL? Would entering in the IP address be a work around?
Yes, the DNS translates volnation.com to the IP address (currently 67.227.153.159). You could try the IP directly but depending on how your work firewall is set up it may not work. It also depends on how Freak has his site configured whether the direct IP will work. I can hit volnation.com but not 67.227.153.159.
