Downloading portable launcher at school triggers firewall
« on: November 07, 2016, 06:07:48 AM »
Trying to download the portable launcher utility (the .zip file) fails, giving this error:

This request is blocked by the Firewall Gateway Anti-Virus Service. Name: Zegost.A_55 (Trojan)

This is both annoying and worrisome. I would like to believe that the download is not infected and that this is a false positive, but it is still highly worrying.
The maximum speed of any ship or missile with a given engine technology is the speed of a ship composed only of one engine of that technology with the highest power to weight ratio possible with current technology, and nothing else.

School firewalls are terrible. They block things that are safe/fine but don't actually block dangerous things/sites. In high-school my math teacher actually challenged me to get around the firewall, it took me all of 2 minutes.
Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.
