Oh! And Another Thing….

…Facebook is blocked in Vietnam.  From what I can tell, you can’t access it anywhere in the country.  The government considers it a social evil.  There’s supposed to be a way around the government block, but I think those sites that explain how are also blocked from the search engines.

So, if anyone has any ideas (meaning can you do a Bing or Google search for me?), otherwise, I’ll see you on the other side.
