*This is a tutorial for Mac OS
(I'm not currently on a mac so I might be wrong about the path from "Open Package")

1. Download Minecraft
2. Right Click on Minecraft and select "Open Package"
3. Try to navigate to a file named Minecraft.jar (Will Update on Monday)
4. Run the file (Premium account needed)
5. Congrats! You have installed Minecraft to your schools computer.

(If your school blocks .Jar Launcher, this will not work)

ALSO! Does your school use http://www.cymphonix...rkComposer.html? Can't find a proxy for it? I have the answer for your! Youtubeproxy.co.uk uses a random server. Even if one of your classmates rats out on the proxy it shifts IPs regularly. The only cache is that Youtube will not load videos (Ironic isn't it?) and Facebook doesn't work at all.

Yeah, I wish there was a way to save on a flash drive instead of in AppData...

The problem is that is you cannot open a .app or any other file type that the School didn't Allow. Plus, this is not confirmed.

Sorry, Newbie but almost all Schools use a proxy that updates its Protocol a lot. Minecraft is now a popular GAMING site. It will be blocked.

Like you wouldn't believe it. The Proxy my school uses is near - impossible to crack (That is the ONLY proxy that will work with my school's)

They use Mac OS.

We can't go anything with: Game, Adultery, Adult Contect, Any dialog about Drugs, Youtube. ETC

I could go on

My school has fail security. If you add a period before the www. (.www.) it redirects you to the website, which oddly enough is accessed without problems.

my old highschool used to have not laughable security, because they just had a bunch of the geeks be security/do maintenance for the school with the supervision of the only computer savvy teacher, but after we changed from being whatever school division we were, to one that was 2 school divisions together, they scrapped that and had a division wide tech support/security that was complete balls, kids would just name files mspaint.exe and it'd work fine, which is how they all were able to play shit like quake arena all the time -.-;;

My schools security is basically a warning system. Even though a website seems "blocked", if you refresh the page enough, you'll get there.

My school is bad at their internet blocks. They block deadwhale, andkon, and even WEBKINZ, but you want to know what they didn't block? Youtube, what sense is that... I am just at a loss for words. Also, they have blocks for .www. and https://, but when you type in the IP of the site, you get there.

I've attempted to play minecraft at school, but I got this really lengthy error. Got off-topic this entire post.  :D

Sooo, the comps, are practically on lockdown. Since the Accounts you log into/onto, aren't Admin.
So what you need to do is, to hustle your way to the Root password, from the schools IT-Admin.

And may i ask what kind of Proxy, your school uses for the interwebs?

If i remember correctly, then you would need to install it on the Mac?
If that is so, then you would need the Admin a/o Root password to do it.

My elementary school had GREAT security, but they only had select few websites locked, as we were given plenty of heavily supervised time to play games, and they didn't seem to care about the bandwidth loss associated with fifteen kids loading flash games and videos at once.

My high school had hilariously bad security, because they joined all the schools together around my freshman year under one big school division.  A group of three guys who did NOT know what they were doing ran the IT aspect of it, and the best they could do was call and whine when they detected a class was using up bandwidth like nobody's business.  You couldn't install anything from the internet, yet I installed starcraft on a machine with no problems, and played a few matches against computers once.

As for my college, the wired internet has a few blocks on it, but I just use the wireless that is provided all over the place in saskatchewan, as there is three or four access points in my campus.  No blocks, decent speed.  Awesome.

Well, I have to stay at school for quite a lot longer than the time that I am in classes... A lot of the time I have are free periods and then I often have to stay after school... It wouldn't come down on my education though I played games during my free time...
I also have problems sometimes when doing research in school because of the block, it blocks a lot more sites that it's supposed to block and if Im doing an assignment in a hurry I cant wait for the schools ISP to deal with unblocking it...
