Apologies in advance - this is not really a linux topic:

I discovered the other day that someone in the office was watching Tennis
on the BBC web site on their PC - I presume this is a flash plugin or something?

The problem is that we have a fairly crummy internet connection, due to distance
from the Exchange and these sort of downloads soak up too much of our limited

Connections are done through a Squid proxy on a Linux box.

Is there any way of preventing these types of connections through Squid, or
do I have to look for means of removing the flash player/whatever capabilities
from the web browsers?
