Youtube Blocked.. Ahhhh Crap!!!

I really cannot tell you how much this irritates me.

for those of you inside the GFW, I suggest using the Foxy Proxy plugin for Firefox. It got me through the Flikr, typepad, and blogger blockages… and it will get me through this one.

For more, stayed tune to Shanghaiist. They will surely stay on top of it.

Update 1: Shanghaiist has put together a great post summarizing what has happened, what bloggers besides myself are saying, and a few work arounds.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    Does foxyproxy perform better than just installing TOR with a TOR button? Also, something interesting: my personal webpage (the Chinese version of which is more popular), is BANNED in the USA. I’m beginning to think that just saying what the party is up to won’t explain this type of abuse we’re getting.

    I have a couple of friends that are using just Tor and likethe performance. I myself have not tried the just Tor option, so I cannot say. However, Foxy proxy does take time to load (like Anonymouse)… perhaps if I were in the US on a really good feed it wouldn’t make a difference… but the ADSL connection I have certainly makes the entire process much slower.
