everlasting battle with GFW

与 GFW 的战斗永不停息,下面是以前写的几篇 post。

2017-12-06 meet long-lost google scholar

A few days ago, I found I can’t access Google Scholar, but I was to busy to deal with it.

Now, I need to search papers about de novo RNA-seq assembly. So I feel urgent to use it. I search Google, and find many people talks about host, ipv6, etc. Not believed what they say, I decided to have a try:

vim /etc/hosts (execute host on VPS to get the ipv6 address)

# Google Scholar 

It turns out the method works! Now I can happily use Google Scholar again, although changing host periodically may be cumbersome.

Thank Google, as long as I can access you, there is still a help.

A few days later (2018-05-09), caused a big trouble to me. A font didn’t exist on it, but did on Google.

I realized that the biggest problem with GFW is that it’s very hard, or better, impossible to find a universal solution. Shadowsocks may fail at times, reverse proxy may lag in synchronize, block may impair things I really need.

At least for now, Google Fonts has been completely blocked in my heart, following Google Analytics and Tag Manager.
