Censorship List Switzerland

Apophis

, , ,

A few days ago there has been posted the Danish Censorship list on Wikileaks[http://www.wikileaks.net/]. And I remembered that I once read that it was the danish police which delivered the first 1000 URLs the swiss KOBIK has banned (Heise original News[http://www.heise.de/newsticker/Schweizer-Internet-Provider-sperren-Kinderporno-Seiten--/meldung/84397]). Therefore I checked the list of domain names against the Cablecom DNS Server to see if they still match in a big part.

I am again on a 22nd floor, this time with a magnificent view over Moscow.

北京欢迎你 - Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni - Beijing Welcomes You

Apophis

, ,

[G2:13783 n=1 class="left" exactsize=180 frame=dots] Did you know that the 5 mascots of the Olympic games are called BeiBei JingJing HuanHuan YingYing and NiNi? You see a connection between the names and the subject of this post? Yes its a word-play, Chinese love word-plays, and they have plenty of them. Thats why the love the number 8 because its sounds like wealth and hate number 4 because it sounds like death... (The names of the mascots uncovered in detail: http://pinyin.info/news/2005/bei-bei-jing-jing-wel-wel-comes-comes-you-you/[http://pinyin.info/news/2005/bei-bei-jing-jing-wel-wel-comes-comes-you-you/])

My website isn't reachable from China at the moment with my normal DNS entry, http://apophis.ch[http://apophis.ch], the compleete DNS entry with all subdomains is blocked at the moment, but the IP is still reachable as is my backup domain entry. The site is therefore still reachable as http://apophis.eu[http://apophis.eu].
