There is a library at a college near my home that has public computers for non-students. However, the uses are restricted for the public users. Only websites that end in .edu,.org, and .gov can be accessed. Would there be a way you could make it so I could access your site. For instance could you make it so purplemath.com and purplemath.org led to the same place? I would really appreciate this since that library is the only quiet place I can study, and since whenever I have a math question, I can just go to purple math to have it answered =)

Since the ".org" domain name is owned by third parties and is merely a parked domain, with the registration information hidden. (This indicates that the name was probably chosen in hopes of misleading users, so that ads or porn could be served up to people looking for the legitimate Purplemath site. And the owners don't want to get caught.)

There is no way for this ".com" site to do anything with the ".org" domain. Sorry.
