The Interwebs has more than one irritating “feature”.
One that annoys me is that occasionally I want to read something and it pops up a message saying I can’t access it unless I’m a local. A perfect example is the BBC in the UK. They are very precious about their content and tell me to fuck off just because I’m Irish. I thought that discrimination went years ago but apparently not.
So I finally subscribed to a wee drop of subterfuge. I signed up for a VPN.
Currently I’m in Sydney. There is no particular reason for moving there though I hoped it would be a bit warmer as it’s supposed to be summer, but I’m still cold. Just to be sure I have actually moved I asked Goggle to suggest a news site. Sure enough it filled my screen with Aussie sites. Weird. Apparently there is some kind of tennis thing going on there?
Anyways of course the big thing about moving house is that I can access all those sites that are kindly blocked by our legislators to stop us taking a peek at films and the like. I can see busy times ahead.
And when I get bored with that I can always move back onto the Dark Web?
