[ot]can't get into maxobjects.com from china

June 21, 2006 | 4:49 am

hi,

i can’t seem to get into maxobjects.com here in china.
as you all know, internet access is limited here, but normally, this is easily dodged by using a webproxy like http://www.hidemyass.com.
this way i can get into sites like bbcworld, wikipedia,etc.
but, this doesn’t seem to work, i can’t get in.
do people in other parts of the world have trouble connecting with them too?
i’m quite sure the great firewall isn’t limiting this site specifically, so maybe there is a different problem?

cheers

ps i’d e-mail them directly, but don’t have the e-mail adress

Strange that you can access Wikipedia, BBC but not maxobjects.com.

You might want to try Tor:

at least it works for me.

best,

Lawrence

It is also perverse that the People’s Republic authorities should
block maxobjects. Controversial policitcal topics?

Google seems to have a pretty comprehensive cache of content from
maxobjects. You could try a site-specific search, something like

litter site:maxobjects.com

turns up the Home > Libraries > L page (ListOps, Lobjects, stuff from
Luigi Castelli and Eric Lyon, and Litter Power). At least here in
Northwest Berlin.

random site:maxobjects.com

turns up about five dozen links.

Not everything is in Google (I tried a couple of Litter objects, no
dice on lp.dicey). Not perfect but maybe worth a try.

I don’t want to get into a fight with the person who explained to me the
difference between Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and mainland China. I’ve
taught in all of them. My point was that, given free access, Chinese maxers
are just as active as anybody else.

I used to buy my Herald Tribune at the Kunming Holiday Inn. One day it
wasn’t there. The clerk explained to me that I must be mistaken. They had
never sold it. Learned later that the HT had published something the
government didn’t like. I lost the BBC off my Kunming TV cable about the
same time. I did get to see the original "Lost in Space" from episode 1.

talking to me ; )
i fully agree, it’s just that in practice, not too many maxers here.
i do feel the difference between mainland and hong kong (haven’t been to signapore, macau, taiwan)
knowledge of english is one of the major issues, though lots of things getting translated now.

cheers
