Lately I've been experiencing shitty browsing performance while surfing YouTube and other sites. I even get shitty performance with the online PGCE I'm doing. However, when I fire up my proxy (with a proxy server in California) -- everything improves.
What the FUCK?
Just thought I'd post this. The government says it's illegal to use proxies to circumvent their bullshit, but when these fucking brown-nosers start shoving their snouts in our regular day-to-day activities? I'm not taking any of that shit.
I always thought using a proxy would make things slower. Well fuck -- even some local sites are faster to browse under a proxy!
I wish I could afford to make just a dollar a year.

the last couple of weeks my true connection has been shit. Noticeably also when watching youtube videos, to the point that half way through a video the connection wil go completely, and am left unable to browse other sites even. it says I am still connected, and the router has all the correct lights on... but nothing works until I turn it off and on, put the video back on, get another 5 miunutes, rinse and repeat
Similar thing happens to me. YouTube vids just don't load. Reloading the page works, but it's selective -- sometimes I get the same "connection error" message (which btw, isn't just a black abyss -- it's a black abyss with static effects now).
What REALLY pisses me off is how I can't go full-screen without it fucking up. But when the proxy is enabled, full-screen and HD works flawlessly. This is where I see the biggest improvement.
No problems wiv me 3BB...download 100mb...takes about 3 mins....
same same in weet nam, internet buggery for over a week now.
a half-decent VPN sorts it. and, as an added bonus, you get DECENT PR0N. and illegal news... and higher download speeds.
Imodium can't stop me.
The worst thing is a climate of fear has been created in which no one really knows for sure what is being monitored and what isn't, and so people either have to use encryption and pay for something which is a basic human right or they just accept the limitations on their freedom and censor themselves which is ideal from the government's point of view. The situation is pretty bad here, and moving in the direction of China which has the most restrictive Internet censorship in the world, but we might as well be There already.
