cricket.....its all balls

Ian Holloway on cricket:


No. I don't like cricket. It takes far too long and if the batsman just blocks it... how boring's that?

I think it's an old man's game. I hated it when I was a kid and I don't like it now. I don't dislike any cricketers, it's just a game I find absolutely earth-shatteringly boring! I can understand the last Ashes were brilliant and I'm sure it's a wonderful game if you like it - but it's not my bag. I like a bit of action.

As I see it, when the bowler bowls the ball, he walks back and the rest of the team, who are standing around not doing much, throw the ball around to each other. Then he gets it back and rubs it on his groin.

I've always been a bit worried about a game that lets its players do that in public. Why you'd want to ruin a lovely pair of white trousers by putting a red crease down the middle on your crotch I'll never know.

I played for my school in a tournament once. I was a bowler but I didn't really know the rules. I was bowling all right and if I'd appealed I would have got out the best bloke in the opposite team with my third ball.

I looked at the umpire but because I didn't ask him the question, the bloke carried on batting and he wupped us.

I've hated the game ever since. If you've got umpires there, why do you have to shout for it? You wouldn't have to wait for a referee to blow for a penalty, would you? Everybody appeals for absolutely everything and I didn't know that. I thought it was a load of bull.



He's still got it.

If , perhaps you want to bypass a proxy server, be it while at work or at school, you have two options open up to you. The first is straight forward and easy and involves only your web browser. The second is a bit more complex but could be necessary if the first solution does not deliver.

Should you be lucky enough, bypassing the proxy at your work or school may be as simple as disabling it in your web browser. Check the internet connection settings of your web browser and check to see if the proxy server details are put in place in your web browser. Whenever they are, try to disable them and connect to online again. Many timesthat with some luck the proxy server is disabled but you are now able to access the web normally.

Many schools or offices block specific websites (such as social networking or classified sites) and furthermore this is usually why you may have trouble accessing them. They did this usually with the goal of stopping students or employees from wasting valuable time online visiting unproductive websites. However, your school or office does not and cannot block the entire internet. Instead they block specific websites determined by their site link. Therefore, you are free to access a proxy server which then redirects your connection to your desired website allowing you to access the blocked website even from work or school.

To bypass a proxy server, first check to see if your web browser at work or school is setup to access the proxy. Disable it and try again. As a last resort, you may need to setup your own elite proxy in order to access websites while at work or school.
