I want my IM at work!

My lifeline to my IM contacts while working at the office has been cut off! That’s right, in their attempts to sanitize everything that could be innovative and productive, SAP’s IT group has decided that Meebo is a security risk and blocked it. The blocking of Meebo is the latest in a long line of corporate IT actions made under the guise of “security” but I’m convinced that they simply want to eliminate those things that make the ordinary SAP employee’s work life easier, like Google/Yahoo Desktop, and Copernic (they do provide a package for MSN Deskbar, but I can tell you from experience that MSN Deskbar is one shit awful product when compared to the others). To rub salt in to the wound, the link referenced in the image below points to a list of hyperlinks to all the blocked sites… what exactly is the point of deliberately linking to sites that you are blocking?
