Not sure how long this is going to last, but for the first time since I’ve started this blog, I’m actually able to read it without having to use internet magic (my more tech savvy friends may know it as a proxy).
Chances are good that this is just a temporary thing, since the timing seems strange with all the protests going on in the Arab world, but hopefully this is a small sign of things to come.
If it’s not too much to ask, I’d really like to have facebook back too.

ok until i left to Norway on 09/29.. blocked yesterday when back in China.. 🙁
It does seem to be blocked once again. A fact I realized when I tried to have Chinese co-workers visit another wordpress site that hosts a number of useful files.
I use http://www.highspeedvpn.com/ to get on WordPress blogs when in China. It`s pretty fast and not so expensive ..
Hi Tom 😀
My name is Bryan. May I ask if you are still blocked by the wall now and have to access your blog by proxy? coz I’m heading down to shanghai for 3 months 😀 so I’m thinking if I should get a self-hosted platform.
Sorry Brian but it is very blocked now! Actually since 1st October last year!
thank you so much
seems like it’s self hosted for me or tumblr in this case
or still jump over the wall as i am doing.. with an extremely stable and free proxy service.. 🙂
if interested, leave a comment on my blog with your email.. i tried a few before stopping on this one (completely free and extremely stable, even from a minor place where i live, no big metropolis with good internet!)
good luck anyway!
here’s my email 😀
