In an ongoing effort to continually improve and effectively manage LNA's network resources, and to alleviate the current saturation of LNA's Internet connection, we will begin to block generalized access to the YouTube and Google Video Web sites, as of Tuesday, October 28.Obviously, I'm not the only cyber-slacker taking up office space here at Large Nameless Agency. (The previous filtering was to block high band-width advertising, i.e., ads with animation and video instead of just a static block of text and graphics.)
While the steps outlined in the previous announcement below beneficially reduced bandwidth usage and Internet connection congestion, additional filtering is required for YouTube and Google Video sites, which currently account for the highest percentage of Internet bandwidth usage at LNA.
