    THAT would be interesting, although I'd substitute Jennifer Coolidge for Jennifer Lawrence (I'm probably older than you are)!

    You're thinking of Remot Desktop. This worked great even over dialup. Amazing.

    if you have a pro version of windows on your laptop that will work. Dunno if the newer versions of windows have it ootb. Set up the service. Then you need to create a rdp shortcut with your home computers IP. If thats dynamic then you need a service that will resolve it for you so you can access from work. Open up the right ports on your home router and you're good.

    temp in oakland right now is 61F. you must wear a jacket. But summer is the question.

    Then this is for academic interest only.

    Barracuda's web filter is good.

    You can do all the above you have listed, but why go through all the trouble? Just use Chrome as your browser, and add Chrome Remote Desktop app. It's cross-platform. Here are some links for you on how to go about it.

    Link1
    Link2
    Link3

    Follow the instructions and you be done in no time. Instead if you want to use a 3rd party app, you can try Teamviewer, it's free and good.

    Chrome needs me to sign in to Google. I try not to use Google as much as possible.

    I have tried teamviewer. It's workable.

    I turned on the remote desktop feature on my laptop and opened a port to the machine. It works!

    Big FU to the censors!!!

    @ gunnut - If it works for you, all's fine. Seems to me, I'm not the only one concerned about my online privacy. Here's how you can reduce some of your digital footprints. How to Disappear Online. The article doesn't say much, nonetheless it's a good starter.
