So, that’s what censorship looks like…

Danish ISP Tele2 has been forced to censor Russian based website allofmp3.com. I haven’t used allofmp3.com’s service, and don’t plan to in the future, but that doesn’t mean that this isn’t interesting and disturbing to me. If IFPI can get the courts to turn off allofmp3.com today, who will get what website turned off tomorrow? Your guess is as good as mine.

Here is a screen shot of what my browser returns when I try to visit http://www.allofmp3.com/:

However, the censorship is not impossible to get around, if you have a little technical skill…

If you were to add the following few lines to your hosts file you should be well on your way to getting around the blocking (for now).

87.242.93.250 allofmp3.com
87.242.93.250 www.allofmp3.com
87.242.93.250 music.allofmp3.com

In a completely unrelated topic, I finished my algebra exam today. It didn’t go as well as I had hoped, but I should be sure of passing (and isn’t that the important part?). It was a written exam, so my final grade is not known yet. Time will tell.

Now I’m (almost) off to get some Julebryg of some sort, and then I have a packed (but interesting) weekend ahead of me. Take care out there (who ever might be listening out there…).
