So my dear Indian Government seems to be blocking blogspot access across the country...

First, read this for the whole story.

Then, use this or this to beat it. Of course, you're already here, so you're reading it.If you know people who can't access blogspot or typepad, do let them know how to.

Thanks in advance.

but the the bitches seem to have left BSNL alone. yay.

I ditched my BSNL connection last week, remember? And here I thought the new one would be more "reliable" [making bunny ears with fingers while I'm saying that, I'm that pissed off.]

Not too bothered though. By the time I'm back, everything should be back in order. I hope.

WTF.. i cant believe it, i thought we are in a free country

Pi said...

Yeah, it's quite bizarre. It's spreading across the country like mad. Should be on tv tomorrow, if THAT doesn't get censored too.

And CJ, gather your rosebuds while ye may. I figure it's going down for you too by tomorrow, latest.

there's no block anymore. and if some people are still not able to open blogspot, they can try inblogs.net, it's better than daveproxy and pkblogs.
it was a real stupid move. and they look even more stupid after lifting the ban.
