Haxoring teh Interweb
I have bypassed the Chinese govt's internet filter (it's not particularly hard) and now I can access LiveJournal, and best of all, BBC News in Chinese. (Parts of the BBC's English version are sometimes accessible from China... but I would rather try reading the Chinese version, so I need to bypass the filter.)

It's a bit slow, but it's fairly secure. I can access basically anything I want, and I don't have to worry about anyone eavesdropping on me, because the connection is encrypted.

The details:

ssh -D

... and in System Prefs, Network, I have set up as a SOCKS proxy.

( is hosted on a virtual server I rent from, and it's in South America. This causes all my traffic to be relayed through that server via the SSH session.)

So I'll write something interesting and less techy next time... but yeah, here I am, back again :)

If I'm ever in China at the same time as you, you will be helping me use the internet! :P
