what was your internet-connectivity in china? was it dial-up or wlan or hotel?

Congratulations to this wonderful idea. Freedom of information is a necessity for all human beings and I truly believe that Picidae is a great step towards this objective. On the other hand don't understand how Picidae can be accessible for students especially from China the entire time, since this site will soon be blocked by the Chinese government. So what is the Solution of the Picidae-Crew?
We surfed the internet on many places in China, mostly in internet-coffees called wang ba 网巴, wang bas are for most people the only place they have internet access. All visitors in these internet-coffees have to show their passport and get registered. The speed was usually reasonably fast olthough we have no idea with what speed they are connected. It is told, that the filering system is slowing down the speed - otherwise it could be even faster...
Why picidae is accessible:
picidae is a community project. The pici-Server software is freely downloadable.
And there is a second network, called pici-Proxies. You can install a short script on your own webspace, so you maintain another access to an existing picidae-Server.
Your own pici-Server or pici-Proxy should be renamed and NOT using the words picidae or pici. Filtering systems might block your access otherwise. But instead of words there is a sign to mark your access. Use picitures! And don't forget to avoid everywhere the written word picidae or pici even in names for pictures and mouse-overs or in the address.
There are many such pici-Proxies existing by now. Set up your own one and tell your friends or communicate it via pici-signs.
And don't forget to tell about picidae, to support the project. Thanks!
Nice work but what will you do if your site gets on the index of chinas filter as well?
picidae is not just one single website and does not only work for China. The project is a growing chaotic network. That means that there is not just one access to block. many proxies and some servers exist at the moment, they all have their own URL (Internet address).
It is important to have many participants.
How you can support the project has been written above by Mathias.
