Day 2 morning - internet woes
Went to bed at 10 pm yesterday, which means I woke up at 6 am and couldn't fall asleep again. Huh, I never had this problem back during working days. :P
Anyway, made myself my daily cup of 板蓝根 using boiled bottled water and went to check the internet for updates. Apparently, facebook is blocked, even the http://zh-cn.facebook.com/ local site. As is imageshack (can't see the pics of my previous entries anymore). So what am I gonna do for uploading photos real-time? WTF China. o_O
Add: I managed to get into imageshack using http proxies found on google. However no http proxy so far will get me into facebook. A lot of proxy sites are apparently blocked to. Anyone can find me a old style proxy service or free vpn service (not on my work laptop) I can use to get around the Great Firewall of China?
Add2: Hm...it seems that a lot of proxy services can get me to more minor sites like imageshack. But the minute I try to access facebook, that proxy isn't usable anymore for any other site, including non-blocked sites like yahoo. Wow, they really are serious about restricting facebook.
