China and Censorship

I have arrived in China and so far it’s quite amazing, before I get to that a rant about censorship though.
When I first tried to access my blog I found out that it was inaccessible, as seems most other information of interest. This is known as the great firewall of China and meant to stop the proletariat from being informed about the world at large. Before this happened I didn’t realize how pissed off I could get about some faceless communist critter telling me what I can read and write. Anyway after talking to Matthew, an English programmer, he put me onto a VPN service and it looks, fingers crossed that this has solved my problem. The great computer gods in the sky think I am in the USA right now.
