Back to blogging!

I am able to access blogs freely again from home (Airtel broadband). Actually I have been able to do so for more than 24 hours, I just didn't pay attention. So I guess bringing it to the attention of the media did help in getting the powers-that-be to reconsider. Desite the mixed feelings most of us have about the media, I suppose in a country like India it is still the most effective way to get your opinion heard.

lots of posts since i last visited this place ... in fact, i think, I was last found blog surfing when the dinasaours were still around .. its been ages !

about the webpage censorship, try this :


From an article in the Times Of India -


Fortunately, technology makes it easy to circumvent such ham-handed censorship. The methods fall into two categories. One, if your ISP goofed up and blocked the wrong site, what you want is to gingerly step around the block using a proxy. The simplest way to achieve this is with Torpark, a project that combines the Firefox browser and the Tor anonymous proxy service into a single point-andclick install for Windows users. Get it from http://torpark.nfshost.com.

Torpark behaves exactly like the Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers you are familiar with, but is unaffected by censorship. Tor operates a series of proxy routers around the world that pass your pages through at least three random routers before delivering them to you. This ensures that your ISP does not know what sites you are accessing, and hence cannot block them. The more people who use Tor, the more effective it becomes against wrongful censorship. You can read more about Tor at
http://tor.eff.org.

Two, go to http://www.shysurfer.com, type in the address of the site you want to access, and hit Browse. ShySurfer will load the page for you. If you want to follow any link on the page however, you will have to repeat the process. This is a cumbersome process you have to put up with for being on a restricted network.
