Barracuda

You can’t read this at the Westin

Monday, December 26, 2011 

Oddly, this server is blocked by the network at the Westin Grand, Berlin.  Everything else seems to work, even www.dis.org (which is blocked by sites that subscribe to the  Barracuda filter list, cause any site with information on radios is frequented by hackerz).  It does not seem to be a national level block as I get plenty of visitors from Germany.

Easy enough to get around by VPN, but odd.  Very odd indeed.

Shipley is a Rock Star

Who would’a thunk a little site like dis.org, the on-line clubhouse for a few bay area computer types, would make both the barracuda block list and the UAE block list. How cool is that?

If you’re not in the UAE: here’s the block list http://www.etisalat.ae/assets/document/blockcontent.pdf

And if you’re inappropriately blocked: http://www.etisalat.ae/index.jsp?type=proxy
