Thanks a whole lot!!!! Installed it, works great!! The Pak govt. is running some sort of filtering software - they had hired a western company to set it up for them for a astounding 50 million dollars! So it's not just a DNS thingamajing - for example the SA Tribune
is blocked, but even if I enter in the IP address directly, it still goes nowhwere. IP being 18.104.22.168
The censorship is not to bad - they mainly block porn sites and the occasional news websites, but its annoying nonetheless. Especially the news - as it just attracts more attention and more people people end up reading it than otherwise. ironical, but such is the way this country runs.

for last years attempt at censorship.
