New Pattern Found In Prime Numbers

The Best Way Through the Great Firewall of China

Spikeman56 Bah, sensationalist propaganda! (118 comments)

Everyone who does anything technical in China (I'm talking of Chinese people here), knows to use a VPN to tunnel out to Japan or somewhere similar. If it's "illegal" you certainly wouldn't know it.

I recently returned from 6 months in Beijing where I reliably used my OpenVPN connection to an Amazon EC2 server whenever I needed something "special". Don't get me wrong, the great firewall is a pain in the ass, and they don't have the infrastructure (intentionally) to support that much traffic flowing in and out, but it's the same intarwebs we all use.
