Take That. And That.

I managed to get my IP address to look like this (more or less) from Kunming, so that I could get online in China without being blocked from social networking sites, news sites, and my work servers.

This doesn't work from internet cafes. Only from your own computer. And I sometimes had to combine a web proxy with a VPN. Other times using just one was fine. My work email wouldn't send at all with a VPN or web proxy on, so I was doing quite a complicated e-dance overall.

Dear censors and esteemed policy-makers of the PRC:

Give it a rest. Your people deserve better than you protecting them from Twitter.
