This is a research prototype of some prof at u-tokyo. Its a very cool 3D modeling program that converts sketches into 3D models. You can also "paint" the model and it will create textures from the painting. There is the original "teddy" and a newer "smooth teddy". I highly suggest checking this program out. Very fun to play with.

Sounds cool...Too bad this computer blocks the page for "inappropriate content, glamour and intimate apparel" :(

>>> "inappropriate content, glamour and intimate apparel

Your blocker seems to be paranoid. I cannot find anything on that site that would be considered inappropriate for general consumption. Blocker details?

There's some quite interesting stuff there.

Probably the name itself. A Teddy being a piece of, quote "intimate apparel". i.e. A certain type of lingerie, or as the wonderous dictionary.com expounds: "1. A woman's undergarment combining a camisole top and panties."

As to the program itself; Very cool technology. Probably quite fun to play with. Unfortunatly, since I lack any kind of artistic ability in the paint/drawing department, I assume my creations would be far from breathtaking. :)

I am quite aware that a teddy could be an item of ligerie, it just seems remarkable that a site would be blocked for that. Kids cannot look for "teddy bear" - must be more than that, but I couldn't find it. Seems to be urging on the side of caution to an extreme degree.

What's next? Are they going to come out with a new type of underwear called a Tickle Me Elmo? If they came out with it, it'd probably be extremely sexy.

Yeah it is...It blocked some famous speech--I think it was the "I have a dream" speech because it was "hate speech"

And all I know is it is called "Cyber Patrol" and my dad has had it installed on this computer for quite some time...

Ah, Cyber Patrol. I've had a run-in with that one before. Not to encourage anything immoral and whatnot, but lets just say my run-in lasted under 2 minutes. Cyber Patrol is rather suseptable to all kinds of bypasses. My encounter was a good five years ago or so, so versions may have improved, but I recall that I was able to simply end its process. WTH good is that?

My parents used to use Cyber Patrol as well...i dont believe ending the process worked for me, however I was able to bypass Cyber Patrol at start-up time by ending the task that started up Cyber Patrol in the first place. Yes, it was quite easy to bypass.

From New Scientist's Opinion column today...

>>>
EVEN the most innocent-sounding words can be seized on by diligent spam-busting software. John Griffiths was surprised when a message from a colleague, Orde Eliason, was blocked by his spam filter. Eliason describes himself in his email signature as a "Specialist Brazilian, Chinese, Indian and South East Asian image source", and his photographs have been used from time to time in New Scientist.

So what could the problem be? Well, it's that word "specialist". It contains the name of the "super-Viagra" pill, Cialis. From now on, Eliason has decided, his signature will begin: "Specializing in..."
<<<

... over zealous spam filters as well. I would have thought "Brazilian" was more likely to raise a flag then "specialist"!!!!!

If that's true, I'm gonna sue the company. For something. I'll find it. Don't worry.

It's true...I go to google type in "martin luther king jr. "I have a dream" " and it blocks the page...

And I don't think ending the process would work. One time I checked what processes were running and it wasnt, but then I tried to go to that page and it suddenly was there again...
