How to access blocked sites at work

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

If your employer nixes non-work-related sites like Gmail, YouTube, and Facebook, you could try bypassing the blocks with a public proxy — but those are typically blacklisted, too. Here’s how to forge your own detour: Download the PHProxy program from Sourceforge .net. 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. When the proxy page pops up, type your actual destination into the blank address bar. You’re now free — and free to poke away. READ IT

UPDATE
@gdruckman @mikemcguff use google translate. use it to translate your blocked site from English to English and Voila! :)
