this should look something like:
http_access allow allowedsites
http_access deny notallowedtimes
http_access allow ldap
http_access deny all soon as squid matches an allow statement then it doesn't check any
more allow/deny statements and allows access, so you need to deny for
the times that people _can't_ access the whole web before your allow
Hope this is clear enough..
