It was the Bitcointalk forum that inspired us to create Bitcointalksearch.org - Bitcointalk is an excellent site that should be the default page for anybody dealing in cryptocurrency,
since it is a virtual gold-mine of data. However, our experience and user feedback led us create our site;
Bitcointalk's search is slow, and difficult to get the results you need, because you need to log in first to find anything useful - furthermore, there are rate limiters for their search functionality.
The aim of our project is to create a faster website that yields more results and faster without having to create an account and eliminate the need to log in -
your personal data, therefore, will never be in jeopardy since we are not asking for any of your data and you don't need to provide them to use our site with all of its capabilities.
We created this website with the sole purpose of users being able to search quickly and efficiently in the field of cryptocurrency
so they will have access to the latest and most accurate information and thereby assisting the crypto-community at large.
With just a web browser you can open an account at bitcoinmarket, mybitcoin, or mtgox and send/receive bitcoins.
The only thing you're not able to do is try to generate bitcoins, but you said you don't have a computer at home and it sounds like your employer wouldn't be very... uhh, supportive... of you using their electricity to try to generate bitcoins.
If they would be supportive (long ago I wrote software at a hardware company where they actually LOOKED FOR CPU-intensive applications to run during system burn-in, so they'd ship fewer dead-shortly-after-arrival units) then they'd probably be happy to open up outbound connections to port 8333.
It would be helpful to me if someone willing could set up an email(website) to bitcoin gatway to post transactions, and perhaps a website to download a relatively recent blockchain regularly. I have not been able to find any network that I can use that does not block bitcoin *very* effectively. I'm sure that I'm not alone in this modern world, either. I'm only willing to go so far with regard to getting on the network at my workplace, which has an allergic reaction to anything peer-to-peer; and I don't have a computer at home. Even the local library computers have a pretty strong firewall, and prevent bitcoin from making any connections.
