SF TechConnect Blocking Port 80

Two nights in a row now I have tried to get on the SF TechConnect wireless network at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, only to find that they are blocking access to the web (i.e. connections on port 80). Seems to be intentional since I was able to establish an ssh connection without any problems.

It will be a shame if this is a permanent change as it was very pleasant being able to get cup of coffee from Peets in the ferry building and then sit and check email, surf the web or connect back to my desktop and work (guess I can still do this part as long as they don’t block port 22 as well).
