A new program, "Peacefire", is available on our Web page that can
disable all popular Windows blocking programs with the click of a
button -- released just as Congress has passed the first
mandatory-blocking-software bill.

Since the House and Senate passed corresponding versions of the Labor
HHS Education Appropriations Bill (HR 4577) on Friday, with an
amendment included to require the use of blocking software in schools
and libraries that receive federal funding, it is likely to become law
soon.  The American Library Association announced the passage of the
House bill in the December 15 issue of the ALA Washington Office

In response, Peacefire has released a bypass program -- eponymously
named "Peacefire" -- which can disable all popular Windows blocking
software (Cyber Patrol, SurfWatch, Net Nanny, CYBERsitter, X-Stop,
Cyber Snoop, PureSight) with the click of a button.  The program is
available at

A floppy disk with a copy of this program on it, could make a great
Christmas present for the right person :)
