How to access blocked sites at work

Mathew Honan of Wired Magazine offers a way to get around blocked Web sites at work:

Unzip the file and upload the entire folder’s contents to a Web host that can run PHP scripts (GoDaddy and Dreamhost offer plans for less than $10 a month). Enter the host URL into your browser.
