Living in China is blocked

Danwei says it’s due to the machinations of the cybernanny, but why should it be blocked in the US? I’ve been trying to log on for two days, to no avail. If it’s China’s doing and not some technical glitch, it’ll be a shame. Despite my problems with the way LiC has been managed, it’s still a great resource. Or was…?

On my own site, my site meter was down for nearly four hours yesterday, inexplicably, wiping out my traffic averages. I’ll have to think of a way to get it back up; I should be coming out with a killer story on China any time now, as soon as i get the energy to write it down. Stay tuned.

Yup, seems blocked, from Beijing at least.

I am saddened to post that Iris Chang, the author of “the Rape of Nanjing” and “Chinese in America” has passed away today.

Langee, your comment cross-posted with my own post about Iris Chang. I was quite shocked at her death.

It looks like LiC is suffering from technical glitches, as I received the following error message when accessing the site: “Can’t connect to the database server. MySQL said: Too many connections.”

I also checked other Living sites. They all have the same problem.

Well, only Brad can comment on what is going on.

Andrea, I am getting the same message. Sounds more like a glitch than the Great Firewall ar work, but I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

I know they were working on doing an upgrade so perhaps something has happened with that. There’s also a newer aggregator at Watching China but it doesn’t appear as comprehensive as LiC.

Simon, I can’t get Watching China to open! Do you think it’s been blocked, too?
