must be wetting himself at the prospect and pushing his little brain to think how he could bring such control here!!!
China, which last week effectively ended its citizens' right to register a .cn web address, will now only allow access to websites which have been fully registered with the authorities. Individuals will now need a business licence to register a web address. The Ministry of Industry and Information released more details of …
behind the times first the Ozzie's now the Chinese.
I bet he wanders around mumberling under his breath 'if it weren't for those darn Euro's in there Brussel's i could do this', sorry Mandy it was your lot that signed up for the EU without asking us, it's your own fault if they keep getting in the way of your new China republic with there darn Human Right's thinge.
I'm just surprised they ever had internet access in China. Instead, one would have expected them to simply have their own network, with Internet access only available to top government and military officials, and - under tight controls - to senior researchers at top academic institutions.
Governor Tarkin: Princess Leia, before your execution, you will join me at a ceremony that will make this battle station operational. No star system will dare oppose the Emperor now.
Princess Leia: The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.
Why does a host need a registered .cn domain name before trying to discover your root password on your server?
You don't null-route China's traffic because, if you have more than one user, some of them will have legitimate reasons to communicate with the place... like, their business depends on Chinese manufacturers, or sells to China, or they have relations there or...
Or maybe your users are running a website they can't register in China.
Erm, well, yeah. I think if you come back in a few decades you'll pretty much conclude that that is what did happen. Pretty much every government on the planet was replaced. The good governments went peacefully, with the incumbents allowed to finish their terms, retire and go to their graves with reputations largely intact. The rest, well ... it was "more abrupt".
You almost feel sorry for them. Any government that turns its back on the internet will simply go bankrupt. Any that lets it in will have to clean up its act. What's a kleptocratic dictator to do?
No more Falun Dafa crap in China! :-)
Mr. Li wrote his own website when he came to USA and stated that if you truly
practise Falund Dafa as he does then you can float through walls.
Of course that original paticular website no longers exists that was hosted by a NY Isp.
Because they are losing membership they are trying to get more exotic with information and interviews from members who have been abducted by UFO aliens.
How do I know this? A practitioner at work should be doing their job but they installed http apache services on the company network and I am about to get them fired for using company hardware and bandwidth not in accordance with IT policy serving up Falun Dafa crap on company time.
I am building up my own evidence against her.
The only good news is that now guarantees that English will continue to be the dominant language on the Internet - not that I wish to be racist, but because it is the language spoken as a first or second language by the most people on earth. This walled-garden of China's will cement the English language as a method of making content semi-universally accessible for a longer period of time.
Of course, all Chinese internet navigation will now be via dot quads...no need for DNS resolution then, ehhh my precious? Good thing all the Chinese are really good at math...lol.
Actually it might be good to note for the Oz plans... This shows that despite the extensive blocking (from facebook and everything containing the word "blog" to indeed the porn sites they use as excuses) it's still quite easy to get to see prn or whatever if so desired here in China. Hence they need to go to this kind of extremes -- so assuming Mr. Conroy has any semblance of reason (a big assumption, I know), he'll see the much milder blocking they're devising has no chance of success and won't waste money on something unpopular that is doomed to fail and destroys Oz credibility on free speech.
But yeah, one more reason to leave China soon, as if more would be needed. Don't think they'd let people get in by just remembering the IP addresses either, surely they'll block all the non-registered ones. The Chinese are *really* good at remembering number sequences after all.
