    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! πŸ™ 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?

    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.

    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!

    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.

      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… πŸ™ 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! πŸ™‚
