    over there between "work" computers, and the MWR computers set up for off-duty recreational internet and game use.

    I suspect they can still access youtube and other sites on those computers.

    Depending on the base when I was over there two years ago, you couldnt even access yahoo or hotmail on the work computers.

    •  Thats because of security (0+ / 0-)

      the safest way to move a secret throught a government firewall used to be third party email providors.

        partly security, partly the bandwidth available was minuscule.

        DOD computers are ancient enough stateside, I swear some of the computers in Iraq when I was there dated from the mid-90s.
