Surf websites using binary - A geeky way

Is any site blocked by the network firewall of your school, college, office or your Hotel?

Last week we learned about "Surfing the web the geeky way" to get the IP address of any website and use it for browsing the pages. Readers asked is it convenient to ping and then to surf in that way?  What to take all that trouble?

Due to the potential danger of some websites or the misuse of Internet access, some network firewalls or the administrators block some sites. However, people have become smarter or pretend to be. Using of Proxy and other related software are not safe. As the method of finding the proxy is illegal.
I need this most because blogger.com is not allowed to access in my college :( I don't know what their firewall thinks!

Steps for Binary Conversion of URL

What we are going to do is first to convert the IP address into binary then convert it to decimal again which we will use to browse the pages and which will not be blocked/even not identified by firewalls.
Follow the steps:

1) Find the IP address of any website as I mentioned before by use of Ping command in command prompt.
goto start>run>type "cmd">type "ping www.example.com"
without quotes and copy the IP in notepad.
Here I am going to use 68.71.209.223 for now.

2) Open the calculator app to calculate it's binary value, I can calculate without it but if you don't know you have to use it. Goto start> accessories> calculator
Select the radio button decimal now type 74 and now click on bin radio button to convert to the binary that is 1000100, copy the binary code in notepad. Repeat the process for 125, 155 and 99 resp.

 Parts of IP  7 or 8 bits   changed into 8bits 
 74  1001010   01001010 
 125  1111101  01111101
 155  10011011  10011011
 99  1100011  01100011


Some of the binary values are not of 8 bits(8 digits). So place 0 before the code to make it of 8 bits.

3) Now combine all four binary conversions into a single 32-bit value
ie 01001010011111011001101101100011

4) Paste the above 32-bit binary value into the calculator (ensuring bin radio button is on)
now convert it into a decimal by selecting the Dec radio button.
We get the decimal value of the IP Address which is available to browse
1249745763
Type 1145557471 or http://1249745763 into the address bar of your browser. Oh it's working and opens Google
I hope you enjoyed this technique!
You can also use hexadecimal and octal IP addresses. Some dotless IP addresses are also available.
You can share your experience and queries here.

A day will come when firewalls will block this then we will use octal conversion :)

@Satyjit
It's not Proxy here if you read carefully.
