Omantel Blocking Google Images

Omantel at it again.

I need some kind of software thingy to get around this blatant breach of civil rights.

Oman is a modern, developing country........sometimes. 

If you want the tourists to come - you have to FUCKING COP ON!

Isn't it amazing? It was on and off last night, and now it's consistent. What a lovely present on National Day.

I'd ask what they're thinking, but that presumes that someone is...

How can I email you? I don't see an email address anywhere on your blog... read between those lines :)

Use google.com.uk or google.com.au just not google.com.om and the images search works fine.

Thanks Kay

Magical - there is no email address for you to contact me because.....I don't really exist!

Well, it's probably not our complaining, but at the moment it seems to be back.

And the annoying thing is: we'll never know exactly what's up...

MJD, this is probably a mistake, they won't just block it like that. They blocked blogger and gmail by mistake a while ago as well. This was not censorship, but just bad technical skills and procedure I guess.

Cheers mate.

Guess it must have been that. Am still keeping the rant up though! Got to keep showing them that they, like us, are being monitored!
