Blogger Isn't Responsible

for Blog*Spot being blocked by the Chinese Government.
I'm afraid this problem comes from the Chinese government - it blocks all Blog*Spot pages from being shown within the country. If you'd like to purchase a hosting service from another company, though, you'll be able to continue publishing through Blogger and you'll be able to see your blog. Sorry about this, but unfortunately, there's not much we can do about it.

From God's mouth, to your ears, folks. End of story.

I have Chinese friends who visit my blog so I checked Google on Chinese blocking Blogspot. The bulletin is dated March 2004. I know my friends have been to the blog in the last 3 months. So either the blocking is no longer in force or they have found ways around it. I'll email and check with them.

Thanks, Steve.

We'd appreciate any updates that you can provide. Maybe your friends know a good way around the block, and letting other Chinese know what we find out is a service that we can provide.

OK, Chuck, it's taken a while to hear back from my China contact.

He was blocked from my site the last month. Here's what he wrote:

"I couldn’t get on your blog for over a month, and I didn’t spare time to email you about that. I searched about that on the web and find some webs which offer Proxy Sever, by which I get on your blog at last. So the block really exists. The www-dot-wikipedia-dot-com has been blocked. And there are many comments on the internet about the block.
I don’t understand who want to know whether I do something special, and I am ok. We will talk more about that."

I think this is the proxy server he used:

MyJobNet.info

I think that should be enough, but it takes you to:

Hope that helps.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
