Ultra 95 bfbfbfbfbf

Googling has yielded no acceptable results. With TOR on the skids, do you have a direct link to anyone interested in Ultra 95?

It's working for me this afternoon in Beijing. Maybe President Obama's visit has something to do with this?

Sounds about right. The President must have his YouTube fix!  Still blocked here in the provinces.    asasasasas

It does! My students told me about it in newspaper reading. Because of obama's visit they have 'unblocked' YouTube in Beijing and Shanghai, but those are the only two places. BUT if you have one of those fancy web phone with china mobile you can watch YouTube on your phone.

I told my class that I should try to call Obama and make him demand that they turn Facebook on too!  ahahahahah I miss FB way more than youtube....

I hear that a lot of bars in Shanghai have been ordered to stay closed over the weekend due to Obama's visit.

??? The logic behind this is....What?

What's that Mr. President sir?  You would like to visit a local public house and get a taste of Shanghai night-life? Hahaha, no no no, we don't have any of that sort of nonsense here in the socialist paradise of the PRC, no siree.  How about a Tsingtao delivered to your hotel room instead....oh, and if you get a phone-call at about midnight...best just don't answer the phone, ok?

I guess everyone denied a night out will at least have Youtube to keep them occupied.

Best solution is a VPN, virtual private network.

Original application: Company has offices in two or more places, say NY and LA; you want employees in one office to access servers in the other. A few decades back, big companies did this with leased lines, building a Private Network. These are secure if either the phone company is trustworthy (often they are not, see for example http://www.eff.org/issues/nsa-spying) or if you put a box on either end of the link to encrypt as it leaves one office, decrypt when it reaches the other.

A /virtual/ private network or VPN does basically the same thing but using the Internet instead of a leased line. Both offices have firewall machines; make those  encrypt as it leaves one office, decrypt when it reaches the other. Now everything that passes over the Internet is encrypted, so presumably secure.

The other VPN application is the "road warrior". Your sales person is somewhere with a laptop; make that laptop encrypt/decrypt and he can access the corporate network securely.

That's basically what you are buying when you get a VPN service; your machine acts as the road warrior and they provide one or more servers you can connect to securely. Those servers then connect you to Facebook or whatever. The server-Facebook connection is outside China, not censored.

Everything passing through the Great Firewall is encrypted, so they cannot censor it short of shutting down the connection entirely. I'd say they are quite unlikely to do that since most companies rely on VPNs.

Of course the devil's in the details and there are lots of details here, but there are standards (IPsec and SSL/TLS) that have been carefully designed, extensively tested and thoroughly analysed, so there's some hope of getting it right.

I'd use Witopia (http://www.witopia.net/welcome.php) basicaly because ther "about" page says "Founded in early 2003 by former UUNET Managers, ..." and I know UUnet. I'd pick their $60/year SLL VPN because I trust SSL much more than PPTP.

There are many other vendors with a range of prices and features and Witopia have other plans from $40/year to $200 for the hardware then $99/year.

 
Who put a stop payment on my reality check?

I also heard that twitter will be opened for a few unis in Shanghai because obama wants to do a "town hall" style meeting with the "netizens." (I hate that word)
