ok um.. maybe she should journal the old-fashioned way and write down everything in a book, and then when she comes back she can tell us about it.

sorry for commenting thrice, but here is some info you can pass on about bypassing a blacklist:

this is a software that can be put on a usb drive http://www.torproject.org/torbrowser/

cheryl might have to set up a proxy server outside of china. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server)

http://psiphon.ca/ this is a software that sets up a proxy server. someone in the free world has to use this to install a web-based proxy on their computer. Then pass your IP address and password for accessing the proxy to cheryl. this way it is hard for the chinese gov surveillance to check.

hope that helps :)

whats the big deal?

if its blocked, it means the whole blogger.com site is blocked, countries do that...

flickr is blocked in the uae....

she can open another blog elsewhere...there are many other sites

WTF?!?!?!

Poor Cheryl.

She's probably dying a slow death...
I wonder what message she got when she tried to log in.

p.s. I think you should dump fish goo all over China..hahaha.

This was very interesting, and sadly does not surprise me about China.

Sorry I did not comment earlier, I don't know Cheryl, but that's no excuse! :-D
