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

    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 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

      Strange that you can access Wikipedia, BBC but not maxobjects.com.
      You might want to try Tor:
      at least it works for me.
      best,

      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.
