That happens to my friend over there a lot. She has a journal on another site, but I’ve lost the address from my recent reformat. Things like the BBC and various world news sites are also periodically unavailable.

So crap! 🙁 I hope you can get back on!
PS. You’ve probably already tried, but is there a way you can do email posts? I’m not sure you can do on LJ?

That really sucks! 🙁
I know there are some proxy programs, but I can’t find the links right now. Have you tried any proxy websites? s-hhhh.com, anonymouse.pl, anonymouse.org.. they’re slow, but at least you can view the webpages.

Yeah no proxies work at all:(

Urgh. That’s what I heard about China too. Many sites are blocked and LJ is one of them. I guess login through your corporate vpn is the best way to get around it :\
Our corporate VPN isn’t the sort of VPN that does that.. it just gives us access to our office network!

Ic. Well read that you sorta found a way to solve it. Hope that works *cross fingers.
Also, hope you ankle/foot recovers soon!

I’m in Beijing and none of those proxy sites ever worked for me. I tried them all believe me! Finally stumbled on a random post that recommended downloading this http://anchorfree.com/downloads/hotspot-shield/ . It’s free and it WORKS. Everyone in a while you have to click on a pop up to select a type of ad; it just displays an ad on the top bar of the browser but that’s like any other website so you don’t even notice.

yup this is what I use at work! so that the company cannot see i’m reading blogs and comics in my free time 😛
posted on February 18, 2009 at 2:55 pm
OMG you are a GENIUS! And I figured out how to completely remove the top bar/banner so there’s no ads whatsoever, hehhehe

Perhaps you can try Hotspot Shield?
It creates a USA VPN I think.

Awww… 🙁 Yeah that was one of the most frustrating parts of China, not having access to LJ! Or could only read through reader and then only non-locked posts!
Hopefully you’ll find a way! 🙂
