Flickr really blocked this time

Previously there was a work around to view Flickr here in China as the photo server itself was blocked by URL name only. This was well known about. Now the site has been completely blocked here, at least in Beijing. In fact this is about the most concrete block I've seen since I came here.

I'm told that this is a layer 7 (application layer) block, which is apparently serious.

Posting photos is going to be tough I think.

I will miss China greatly when I leave it in just a few months but there are some things I will be glad not to have to think about.
