Fire Wall of China

They've blocked blogspot and livejournal. I can post on my own blogsite, but I cannot read anyone else's blog. Oh the irony...

You that live in a free internet space will not understand how frigging annoying it is to have these crude blocks on surfing. To block off all blogs just seems slightly over zealous no?

I was wondering WHEN you would write about it :)

I understand that there are fairly simple ways to get around that ... e.g. using alternative (anonymous) proxies .. I can ask some more tech savvy friends about the procedure, if you are interested

It really does suck! How are you doing? We are back from Seattle and in Italy for just a week before we fly back and start a new life in United States. Just thought I'd give you an update since you said you cannot do when you blog reading this week.
